If I look back at my 1st attempt in making chicken…. Actually nevermind. Let’s move on!
Now that I have mastered the art of chicken, I use this Slow cooked chicken recipe ALL the time, for my chicken pies, Chicken stuffed raviolis, Pizza’s and so much more!
If you don’t have a slow cooker, it’s fine I got you! You can bake it and still use the same steps asides, I will add a separte portion for baked version but GET yourself a slow cooker, as low as 20$ and so easy to use!! #Dummyproof
The most important part is the marinating!
A marinade is a liquid solution in which you soak foods, particularly meats, before cooking. A marinade adds so much flavor to foods and makes them more tender by beginning the breakdown process of cooking. If you don’t want a dried out, tasteless chicken , you will definitely need to marinate you meats for a few hours, even better overnight!
