Crock pot chicken

FullSizeRender 9

When we eat meat, this is my go-to method for prepping it.  I only buy meat when it’s on a major special (like the Super Target’s $3 off meat coupons plus a cartwheel offer), and then I buy it and cook it in bulk. To toot my own horn here, this is seriously the best idea ever. Takes no time, and gives me all the meat this family will eat in a week. When it’s time to make dinner, just grab a bag of frozen meat and add to your dish and heat till warm. Here you go:


  • 2 1.5 lb packages of chicken or pork (more or less, depending on how much you need)
  • White wine- enough to add 2 inches of liquid to crock pot
  • 2 T garlic powder
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  1. Place chicken in your crock pot (don’t grease the crock pot)
  2. Pour in your white wine
  3. Add garlic, pepper, and salt
  4. Cook on low for 10 hours
  5. Shred and bag by 2 cup portions in quart size freezer bags

Isn’t that easy? You can freeze these for up to 2 months in a traditional freezer, or 6 months in your deep freezer, and take out to use in whatever recipe you need, seasoning as you go. This is literally my lifesaver when it comes to cooking with meat. It takes no time whatsoever, and you can easily cook straight from the freezer without thawing first. **PS- don’t waste the leftover liquid. You can bag it and freeze it, or use it this week in your recipes in the place of chicken broth or stock.

**You can also do this with ground beef, you’ll just have to sub the white wine for red wine or beef stock, and drain the meat after cooking.**
