There’s nothing like coming home after a long busy day to find a delicious smell filling your house and dinner ready to eat. I’ve recently discovered the wonder of a slow cooker. They make life so much easier! This Slow Cooker Bourbon Chicken takes minutes to put together in the slow cooker, and is ready when you get home.
A few weeks ago my mom cooked a whole chicken in the slow cooker. It was one of the best chickens I’ve ever had! It’s so tender and flavorful. I’ve been meaning to try it myself.
I bought a bottle of bourbon awhile back when I made a batch of Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars. Since then, I’ve been looking for new ways to use it in recipes. You might remember a few weeks ago I shared a Bourbon Bacon BBQ Kebobs recipe. Bourbon and chicken go so well together!
The first step to making this chicken is mixing up the sauce. It’s a blend of all sorts of tasty ingredients. The sauce is poured over the chicken and infuses it with flavor as it cooks for hours.
The result? An incredibly tender and savory dish that is perfect served over rice. I sauteed some spinach to go with it, but you can serve it with any vegetable you like.
Do you use your slow cooker on a regular basis? What’s your favorite recipe?
