Orange Vinaigrette

This homemade orange vinaigrette is a family favorite, both in my house and in my extended family. Made with Burroughs Family Farms organic, cold pressed Orange Olive Oil, it has a bright sunshine-y taste that is perfect for the summer months ahead. If you are looking to make your own salad dressing, this is fast and easy, requires ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, and will please even the pickiest salad eater. I pair it with crunchy sweet cashews because its my husband’s favorite treat, over a bed of greens with fresh veggies and peppered salami, and flatbread pizza on the side!

Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken

Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken 14

Who loves rotisserie chicken?

I think everyone does.

And a slow cooker rotisserie chicken is even better!

Thank goodness for slow cookers, like my Breville Fast Slow Cooker. Who ever coined the phrase “set it and forget it” was a genius. That goes for who ever invented the crock pot/slow cooker, too. Seriously, a genius. I had a lot going on yesterday, like I always do, and yet I was still able to put together a nice meal, and not just any meal. My kids favorite thing, hands down, is a Costco Rotisserie chicken, but a little known fact about me is that I cannot stand going in there most days, even if I am headed in to only buy a rotisserie chicken. But we do love those little chickens, because I can do so many things with them, aside from having a good old fashioned chicken dinner, on the cheap and easy to throw together. The leftovers of a rotisserie chicken are great in soups, salads, sandwiches, tacos, etc. My kids even love the leftovers shredded up and put in a lunch box. All this to say, that it was necessary to figure out how to make my own, without a rotisserie.

The slow cooker offers so many fast ways to prep something and let it cook all day, providing you with a great meal and still having the ability to lead the busy lives that we do. From casseroles, soups, stews, roasts, etc, I have found my slow cookers to all be very helpful. This version of the slow cooker rotisserie chicken is based on a recipe from Paleo Cupboard. I used a Burroughs Family Farms small organic pastured chicken and Burroughs Farms organic garlic olive oil to jazz it up a bit.

My favorite way to use this lettuce wrapped tacos, as pictured below.

Based on a Paleo Cupboard Recipe.
Ingredients
  • 1 Burroughs Family Farms organic whole chicken (4-5 lbs.), rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 Tbsp. Burroughs Family Farms cold first press organic garlic extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Spice Hub Organic Poultry Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. Spice Hub Organic Veggie Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 250ml vegetable or chicken broth
  • aluminum foil
Instructions
  1. Make about 6 balls of aluminum foil and line the bottom of your slow cooker with them.
  2. Pat dry chicken.
  3. Combine the dry seasoning ingredients in a small bowl. Rub spices all over chicken.
  4. Rub the oil all over the chicken making sure the chicken is evenly coated.
  5. Place chicken in the crock pot on top of the aluminum foil.
  6. Add broth to the bottom of the slow cooker.*
  7. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
Notes
*My slow cooker cannot be dry in the bottom, so I always add both to mine. It doesn't take much, but a small container is enough to make this work. I find it adds some flavor, as well.

Save your carcass to make bone broth!
