"It's Not Gourmet, Bro!" Southwest Slow Cooker Chicken
The whole chicken! It's the true test of any cuisinier and, while I prefer it roasted, today's preparation shows us a no nonsense, slow cooker approach. While this is mainly a protein source, I paired it with some flavors of the Southwest and a few veggies to make it a one pot meal.
I use a six quart slow cooker, which yields 4 healthy quarts of deliciousness, or as many meals for a hungry guy. Check it out above.
I'm not a huge fan of chicken breast meat, as I prefer to eat it this way, but today's recipe comes in a close second. Using the broth and pulling the chicken apart, you are able to give the inherently dry breast some moisture. However, I'm still a glutton for legs and thighs...
This is a great make-ahead meal that you can portion out and freeze, but works best as to cook-all-day- and-make-my-house-smell-great-while-I'm-off-at-work. Remember, "It's not gourmet, it just tastes that way!"

We are happiest when we cook for ourselves, so I encourage you to get in the kitchen and cook for yourself today.
