Step 1

One: Sprinkle salt and pepper on all sides of chicken dividing evenly. In large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp oil on medium. Add one-third of chicken to skillet in single layer and cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side until lightly browned. Transfer to 4-to-6 qt slow cooker. Working in batches, repeat with remaining 2 tsp oil and chicken.
