One Chicken: Two Easy Crockpot Meals June 17, 2013

slow cooker chicken.

I’ve always been a little leery of cooking chicken in the crockpot since it has a tendency to dry out.  I was pleasantly surprised with the whole chicken, and was able to make a delicious soup with the leftovers the next day.

Crockpot / Slow Cooker Chicken

1/2 lb mushrooms
1 sweet red pepper
2 medium tomatoes
1/2 Cup white wine
Salt, Pepper, Paprika
1 whole chicken

Add mushrooms, tomatoes, red pepper to the crockpot.  Place the chicken in breast side down. Pour wine over chicken, salt and pepper to taste.  I went fairly heavy with the paprika since it really colors up the skin nicely, and gives the broth a rich flavor.  Cook on low for 8 hours.

When cooked, removed the chicken to a sheet pan…I didn’t even need to use a knife since the meat was literally falling off the bones.  Be sure to save all that broth for the next day’s meal !

Crockpot / Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

Shredded/diced chicken meat (about 2 cups which was half a chicken)
1/2 lb. mushrooms, sliced
1 large sweet red pepper, sliced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, sliced
1 cup leftover roasted sweet potato rounds (optional) I just needed to get rid of them.
7 oz can of diced green chiles
14 oz can of diced tomato
4 cups chicken broth
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. chile powder
1/2 cup of heavy cream
Grated pepperjack cheese (optional)

Combine all ingredients in the crockpot, give it a stir.  I actually threw in the larger bones from the drums and thighs during cooking — I think it makes for a tastier soup.

Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4.  Add heavy cream right before serving, and top each bowl with a bit of grated pepperjack cheese if desired.

This recipe passed the “kid test” by the way…we had 3 hungry teenage boys over helping move some heavy stuff out in the yard and they devoured it !

Steak Salad

We have an abundance of salad greens and tomatoes from the garden right now…this is a quick and easy lunch.  Store the dressing in a squirt bottle – it keeps very well. 

Steak Salad with Garlic Ranch dressing.

3/4 C. Mayonnaise
1/2 C. Buttermilk
1 Tbsp. Dried Parsley
3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1tsp. Dijon Mustard
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
1/8 tsp. Cracked black pepper
1 tsp. Lemon juice

6 oz. steak
Kosher salt
Cracked pepper
Garlic Powder
2 C. Salad Greens
1 Tomato, diced

Combine first 8 ingredients to make the dressing.  Add more buttermilk if you like it a little thinner.

Pan fry steak to desired done-ness seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Let stand before slicing.  Assemble salad and dig in !
