Right now the extent of my cooking is in the crockpot. As many of you are finding in life, time is an issue when it comes to cooking, and once you use your crockpot you never go back!
My friend Janna the other night raved about the pulled pork recipe that I have using a can of beer in the crockpot. So she wanted to give it a try using a whole chicken. I was interested in seeing her results and she loved it. So I had to give it a try and delicious, inexpensive, and easy. Doesn't get much better then that!
She used a whole chicken. My husband doesn't like chicken on the bone so I used breasts and then shredded the chicken into pieces and served with rice and black beans. You can use any kind you like. Cut up pieces, thighs, legs. Whatever you have. It will just fall off the bone!
You can play around with your seasonings. These are just a suggestion of what I tried and had on hand. Also, she used a fresh chicken and I used frozen breasts. She cooked on low all day and said it was moist and fell apart. I cooked mine 5 hrs on high and it did the same. So adjust heat according to your time on hand.
Thanks Janna for the great idea. I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
