Ok this recipe is really called Kathy’s Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken.
It is called explosively good because well, we have a little microwave. It doesn’t defrost very well and the chicken was frozen this morning. I ran it through the defrost, but it wasn’t quite defrosted enough to stick in the slow cooker. If I was oven cooking it, I would have shrugged and stuck it in the oven, but I wasn’t. I hit the button to defrost some more, but I think perhaps I forgot to hit defrost. 10 min later I had a mess in the microwave-thus the explosive. You can skip that part.
We had it for dinner tonight. The kids LOVED it. They want it again. I doubled the broth part because I was worried it wouldn’t be enough in my big crockpot-things often aren’t. I didn’t need to worry. I also skipped the skinning the chicken part. I put it breast side down in the crockpot for most of the cooking, then turned it over about an hour before I served it. It wasn’t necessary but shrug. I did.
I served it with rice on the side and ladled a bit of the juice/sauce over the top of that and vegetables. In any case, the family loved it. It made for a delicious chicken-y scent in the house too. We walked in from a busy day and dinner smelled yummy.
It made a nice busy day dinner and a nice change of pace from our usual roasted chicken.
Thanks to KathyP100 for a fab recipe for my family.
