Using It Up Crock Pot Chicken Thighs

Last week I used what we had on hand for dinner and dessert.    The garage freezer had a couple of packs of chicken thighs.  I googled for an easy recipe to cook the thighs and here is the recipe I used.

The ingredients are chicken thighs, beer, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, onion powder, but I used minced onion.

 I put the frozen chicken thighs along with the other ingredients and cooked them on high.  The recipe said to cook for at least 6-8 hours on high since the thighs were frozen. 

 I think it was closer to 4 hours and the thighs looked done.  I checked the temp with my meat thermometer and they were done.

After the chicken cooled, I shredded it and put it in the fridge for use in a chicken tetrazzini.

I did have the mushrooms and frozen peas in the fridge and freezer.  They were left over from a previous meal.  And spaghetti, I most of the time always have that on hand.  Easy enough.

The chicken tetrazzini was a big hit and we used it for dinner and lunch the next day.

  2. Good on you for using stuff up and making a yummy dish too.

  3. Looks good, Hub's just told me to figure out what I was doing with the large pot of bean soup. I guess we won't be eating that for dinner. Dang!

    1. Oh, I hope you were able to figure out what to do with bean soup!
