The Best Crockpot Chicken Roaster Ever

Usually, when I make chicken or any kind of meat in the crockpot, I find it comes out pretty dry. This recipe is really easy, incredibly delicious, and most importantly very moist! Creating the platform on the bottom using carrots helps to lift the roaster off the bottom of the pot to allow the juices to drip and simmer. Just throw it in the crockpot in the morning and you will have a complete meal waiting at dinner time. Click below to watch the video for this simple recipe! Enjoy!

Crockpot Mexican Chicken Soup/Stew over Cilantro Lime “Rice”

A perfect fall crockpot meal!!! Enjoy!

Ingredients
For your crockpot
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb chicken breast
½ cup chicken broth (use a little more if you want it more “soupy”)
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 yellow onion, sliced or diced
½ (14 oz) jar of roasted red peppers
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed (just smash it was the side of a knife)
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
pepper, to taste
For your cilantro rice
3-4 tablespoons cilantro, diced
1 head of cauliflower
½ lime, juiced squeezed
1 tablespoon olive oil
pinch of salt

Instructions

Pull out your hand dandy crockpot. People have been asking for more crockpot recipes so HEAR YA GO!!!! hooooooo ray!

Literally throw all your crockpot ingredients into the crockpot. Mix around. Turn on high for 3.5-4 hours or until your chicken is shredable (is that a word?) with two forks. I love shredded meat.

When your crockpot only has about 30 minutes to go, preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

Pull out a baking dish to prepare your cauliflower. Pull off all the leaves and cut off the stem, then dice your cauliflower into smaller florets and place in baking dish.

Sprinkle with olive oil and salt. Put in oven and baking for 20-25 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.

Once the cauliflower is done cooking, grab your food processor with the shredding attachment. Add cauliflower and rice it up!

Add riced cauliflower to a bowl. Chop your cilantro and add that right into your rice. Squeeze some lime juice over the top and mix together.

Once your chicken is all cooked in your crockpot, take a fork and shred the chicken directly in the crockpot. Then pour ingredients over cauliflower rice. Slice an avocado and put that on top.
Consume!!!
