Musing #36-Crockpot Lemon Pepper Chicken

Yesterday was a...day.
Before we can remodel the kitchen we have to redo all the plumbing in the house. So, I still have no workable counter space. It gets tricky. Even Crockpot meals...But that's the easiest, so here we go again. And it's the end of the month, so cooking supplies is getting low.
Time to get creative.
(Husband loves Meal-Surprise)
But tonight's actually turned out pretty good.

Lemon Pepper Chicken

We used four chicken breasts
half an onion
2T salted cream butter
and lemon pepper (lots)
1-2C Chicken broth


In the crockpot on low for 4-6 hours

But here's the kicker
At least 30 minutes before serving, shred the meat. It will be SUPER tender because of the butter. So you literally just have to stick a spoon or wooden fork in it and twist. But it needs that half hour to reabsorb the juices. If you notice it slurping them up really fast, and there aren't any left to absorb, add some chicken broth or water for it to soak in. There really isn't much worse than dry chicken.

We served it with some cheese broccoli (I'm missing the steamable regular broccoli at Sam's Club, there is WAY too much cheese...and barely enough broccoli...) and rice. It was really tasty.

Kind of 'blah' looking. I usually like a more colorful plate, but it was quick, easy, filling, and yummy. So, enjoy your day, and eat well too!
