Seasoning Chicken in a Crock Pot
By far the most popular way to season chicken is by adding some spice. We almost always use SpiceeGourmet.com for most our seasonings. Spicee Gourmet is “saving the world from boring meals … one good rub at a time.” So make sure you check them out.
Another way to season chicken in a crock pot is to marinade them or cook them with a sauce. This will help tenderize the meat and will slowly add flavor through the whole cooking time.
Least popular, but one of my favorites, is to add essential oil. Adding essential oil can help break down the meat making it extremely tender and add a natural flavor to the food. I recently made a chicken with Tangerine essential oil and it was incredible. It gave the chicken a very nice citrus taste. Message me if you want to learn more about oils.
