I admit it. I do LOVE making things in my crockpot. And most of the time, the meals that I prepare come out pretty darn good and my family doesn’t die of food poisoning. But sometimes, something that I make in my crockpot, Doesn’t. Quite. Turn. Out.
I was excited to make this Slow Cooker Chicken that I pinned last week. The instructions read that putting a foil ball rack makes the chicken taste a little more like a traditional roasted chicken.
The recipe was very easy. Put the foil balls in your crockpot. Season the inside and outside of the chicken with salt, pepper, paprika and steak seasoning, then place the chicken on top of the foil balls. Cook for 4-4 1/2 hours depending on the temperature of your crockpot. Easy, right? That’s the best thing about cooking in your crockpot!
After the allotted time, I couldn’t wait for dinner to sneak a taste. I cut a small slice from the breast and took a bite, waiting for a moist chicken experience. My experience though, was that the chicken was a little dry. Coming from the crockpot? Really? I also couldn’t taste a lot of the seasonings, but that could have been my fault as I might not have seasoned it quite enough.
So I can’t say that This Pin Rocks, but I also can’t say that This Pin Flopped! I shredded the chicken to make some chicken salad which turned out well. So I wouldn’t make this chicken as a center of the plate item, but putting the chicken into a recipe works out fine.
I may try this again but if you make it before I do, let me know how this works for you!
