Need a crock pot recipe using bone-in chicken breasts

Recommended Posts

You can use any recipe really. I've removed the skin from bone-in breasts, and used in lieu of boneless breasts (especially when I can find them for .99/lb!!). Once cooked in the crockpot, you can remove them from the pot and shred up the meet easily with two forks. The meat comes off the bone so easily!


Another option is to just boil them up, cool, and shred them up. Freeze them in sandwich zip locks and pull out as needed for casseroles, chicken enchiladas, etc.

I don't have a specific recipe, but I just found a wonderful website with crockpot recipes. I read about the cookbook on amazon, checked it out from the library, and it referred me to the website. I've been poring over the cookbook (right now!), and it's great. You can click on the link on the left for chicken recipes, and the list is in alphabetical order. Since I have the cookbook in front of me, it may be easier for me to look for recipes that will work with bone-in chicken:


20- to 40-Clove Garlic Chicken

Bacon-Wrapped Cornish Game Hens (hey, game hen, chicken breast, what's the difference?)

Coq Au Vin

Lazy Chicken

Lemon-and-Herb-Roasted Chicken

Rotisserie-Style Chicken


Some are for whole chicken, but it's a crock pot and chicken. What could go wrong? :)
