I promise this is the easiest crockpot chicken recipe EVER. IT’s also super delicious! All you need is a chicken and a powdered soup mix. I usually use a Lipton Onion Soup mix but you can use whatever you want. You could even use one that you make from scratch that I’ve seen floating around Pinterest. Here’s what you do:
1. Place a clean chicken in the crockpot.
2. Sprinkle soup mix over chicken. Resist the urge to add liquid. DO NOT GIVE IN TO THE URGE! DO NOT ADD ANY LIQUID!
3. Cover chicken and set crockpot on low. Forget about it for 6-7 hours (if you can. Your house will smell yummy!)
Or you can pick the meat out and leave the bones to make broth. This is what I usually do. I add water, a few carrots, two or three celery stalks and an onion. I also throw in some parsley (fresh when I have it, otherwise dried works just fine.) I leave it on low overnight. In the morning I put a colander in a bowl and pour the contents of the crockpot in it. I throw away what’s in the colander and divide the broth into 2 cup portions. Once it cools you can remove the fat from the top or leave it for extra flavor. It’s super easy and you don’t have to worry about all the extra sodium!
Do you have any super easy crockpot recipes?
