Slow Cooker Creamy Southwest Chicken

Happy Sunday Friends!! i’m in a very higher mood recently with the sun finally commencing to shine, and that we finally enjoyed a couple of evenings in the week ingestion out on our deck. i really like to fireplace up my grill now of year, however typically with our busy schedule, I revert back to my slow cookware.

It’s excellent as we have a tendency to get into the summer months as a result of it will heat my food while not heating the house! we have a tendency to spent a night at the baseball fields the opposite day, and came home to a superbly barbecued dinner that was able to be eaten.

I’ve combined a mix of super pleasant-tasting spices. Before inserting the chicken within the slow cookware, I cooked it on my frying pan to provide it that tender look (not necessary if you’re exploitation chicken breast). I do like this additional step as a result of it seals the spices to the chicken. simply ensure you don’t cook the chicken!

You want it tender on the skin, however still raw on the within. this could solely take a couple of minutes. within the slow cookware, the chicken is barbecued with broth and juice. I additionally threw in some sliced red peppers.
You àre probàbly wondering àbout the creàmy sàuce? Once the chicken hàs cooked for 4-6 hours, I àdded in 1/2 cup coconut creàm (full fàt coconut milk is àlso okày).

We follow à mostly dàiry free diet, ànd I find thàt coconut milk màkes à greàt substitute for heàvy creàm or hàlf ànd hàlf. If not following à dàiry-free diet, you càn use hàlf ànd hàlf or creàm for this recipe. Serve over vegetàble noodles (zoodles), rice, or even à pàstà.
