How to make Crock Pot Pepperoni Pizza Chicken

First put 1 1/2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs or chicken breasts into your slow cooker.

Then season with kosher salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.

Plus a heaping pile of freshly minced garlic joins the party 🙂

Now just use two forks to shred the chicken right in the slow cooker.

Finally stir in some shredded mozzarella cheese, because cheese is truly the star of any pizza dish 😉

Garlic bread was the perfect addition to this slow cooker meal.

But keep things low carb and serve a salad on the side instead if you prefer.

Leftovers of this meal heat up perfectly, allllmost even better the next day in my opinion.
