Slow Cooked Angel Chicken

Angel Chicken

In the past, I’ve had a lot of trouble with my crock-pot drying out meat.  I primarily used it for making dips and soups where I didn’t have to worry so much about dried out meat.  However, the slow cooker craze is really gaining momentum and I keep seeing TONS of recipes using them.  So, naturally, I jumped on the bandwagon to try them out.  Some didn’t do much to change my opinion about using crock-pots because they turned out bland or mushy or, you guessed it, dry.  However, with this Angel Chicken and the Mexican Pulled Pork Tacos I made recently, I am on a roll!  Both of these dishes are EXCELLENT (and moist)!

Like all slow cooker recipes, this is nice and simple.  Just toss in the ingredients and let it cook.  I will say though, that with my not-so-positive experience with food made in the crock-pot, I always cook it for the “lesser” amount of time.  For example, if it says to cook 6-8 hours, I never do more than 6, and often do less than that as long as the meat is cooked through.  Maybe I just have a super powerful crock-pot, and yours might be different, but that’s what I’ve found works best for me to keep my food from drying out. I know some people like to turn on their crock-pot, leave and go to work, and then have dinner waiting when they get home.  That’s great in theory, but that’s usually when I find my food not turning out so great because it cooked too long.  Just my little tip for you!


The sauce that this makes is SO GOOD!!  I wish I had served it with bread to sop up the extra sauce, because I didn’t want it to go to waste!  One thing I’ll change next time is using less butter.  I don’t think it needed the full 3 tablespoons, and reducing it would cut out some calories.
