How to make Crockpot chicken for meal prep:
You won’t believe how easy it is to make this tasty Crockpot chicken for meal prep. It’s as easy as throwing everything in the Crockpot and walking away, seriously!
Place all chopped vegetables on the bottom of the slow cooker.

Chicken Meal Prep Weight Watchers & 21 Day Fix Info:
Crockpot chicken is a great recipe for both Weight Watchers and the 21 Day Fix.
21 Day Fix Container Counts:
3/4C = 1R
Weight Watchers Freestyle Smart Points:
The entire recipe is 49 Freestyle Smart Points. Remember you can subtract 8 points if you are not eating the sweet potatoes or you can leave them out altogether.
I use fat free chicken stock which is zero points. Calculate for yourself using your brand to be sure you are getting accurate points.
The best way to calculate the points per serving is to shred the chicken and debone. Once that is done you can divide up the servings. Based on roughly 10 servings you would be looking at 5 Freestyle Smart Points including the sweet potatoes.
