Can I be frank? I don’t like cooking chicken in the slow cooker.

I love my slow cooker, but chicken isn’t my favorite thing to cook with it. So when Chicken Farmer’s sent me this months’ challenge to create a chicken recipe using everyone’s favorite appliance I was nervous. Yes, I’ve had success in the past with slow cooker honey sriracha chicken spring rolls and slow cooker chicken tacos but I was a little unsure.

Crockpot Breakfast Ideas with Chicken!

I decided that I was going to use ground chicken for this recipe, as I know that I like the texture of that in the slow cooker and that it was a safe bet.

As always, I use chicken raised by Chicken Farmers of Canada. Not only are the chickens raise to national set standards for food safety and animal care but Canadian chicken is also grain free, hormone free, and steroid free.

I put together this fajita chicken hashbrown with the intention of an easy dinner recipe, but this is really yummy for breakfast too.

My son recently started hockey and (like most extra circulars) it’s at a really inconvenient time: not quite dinner time but by the time it’s over my family is starving and ready to grasp for anything within arms reach when we get home.

Two nights a week we have the perfect opportunity to enjoy a slow cooker meal, I’ll have lots of practice to perfect Crockpot dinners, that’s for sure.

    I love making chicken in the crockpot. Most of the time, it falls apart. I found that cooking it chicken broth first helps keep the chicken really moist. Then I remove the chicken broth and then add whatever flavoring that I plan on using. Then I let it cook for another 30 minutes so that the chicken can absorb the flavor.

    Butter ranch chicken is one of our new favorites and it is super easy to make.
