Two Birds, One Crockpot
Having a new baby always brings new challenges, especially in the dinner department. Lately the crockpot has been the MVP of our kitchen. And since I'm struggling to even plan ahead I end up making chicken a lot. I want to share with you one of the easiest and tastiest ways to cook chicken. In addition to an easy, fall-off-the-bone tender chicken, you also get to make your own chicken broth. Thus, 2 birds one crockpot.
*Warm up the chicken with BBQ sauce and toss it over mixed greens, corn, avocado, tomato, black beans and ranch dressing for a BBQ chicken salad. Also good for just about any kind of chicken salad.
*This amazing chicken, black beans and rice with apple salsa recipe. If I don't have apple salsa I use this salsa recipe as well. Such a delicious, simple and satisfying meal.
*I shred some chicken and add a homemade red enchilada sauce, black beans and a can of diced chilies. Then I used that mixture and roll it up in a tortilla with some cheese, covered in more red sauce and more cheese for homemade quesadillas.
Let me know if you try this! Like I said even just tossing some frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot makes for easy and delicious chicken you can use for so many different recipes. Anyone else use this method? Any other super easy crock pot meals I should know about?
