Where have you been all my life?!
So I used a slow cooker for the first time ever the other day. It is truly a miracle device. I put a liner in, added chicken thighs, chicken broth and a bunch of spices, and 8 hours later had tasty cooked food. The cleanup was a snap and I had tons of leftover. I don’t know why I waited so long. I learned that I do need to spice more aggressively, though - the meat came out moist, but a little bland.
Oh, even better? I learned I can add frozen meat. So, take 5 minutes in the morning to add frozen chicken and some other ingredients to the cooker and come home in the evening to a delicious home cooked meal with easy cleanup. What’s not to like?
