I can’t tell you how much I absolutely love cooking with my crockpot especially during busy work weeks. Even though I work from home, it’s still really difficult to find the time and energy to cook good meals each evening.
We enjoyed my super simple recipe for Brown Sugar Bourbon Crockpot Chicken so much that I decided to snag another flavor of the McCormick Grill Mates marinade packets to use. This time I went with the Chipotle Pepper one and decided to make shredded chicken in the crockpot to use for taco night.
This time I added a few additional ingredients along with the marinade mixture but it’s still quick and easy. This shredded chicken tasted great in soft taco shells but could be used a lot of other ways too; quesadillas, salads, nachos and more!
Chicken and broccoli stir-fry doesn’t get any easier than this recipe. This is the second time I’ve made this and it’s much easier and faster than the chicken and broccoli recipe I tried about a year ago. I had some fresh snow peas in the fridge too so I added them this time but that’s optional of course.
This fried rice recipe is a really great way to use up either some left over rice or any extra meat or poultry you may have lurking in the fridge. I made mine with chicken but you could easily substitute any protein source of your liking.
This recipe is really easy to make and only take a few minutes to whip up. It tastes delicious while not being too salty or rich. I made mine with white rice but brown rice works well too. Enjoy!
I don’t know why it took me so long to figure out that I could take a simple marinade mix packet and use it in the crockpot. This was so simple to make but infused so much flavor into boring old chicken breasts. They stayed super moist too and practically fell apart.
I know this really isn’t a “recipe” but I figured maybe it’s something others haven’t thought to do either. It’s one of those things that makes you smack your forehead and go “duh”. All along I had the makings for an easy and flavorful meal right in my pantry.
