Basic Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

In the Hamilton Beach test kitchen, we pride ourselves on coming up with great ideas to make cooking healthy, delicious meals for your family as effortless as possible. This recipe for basic, all-purpose shredded chicken is one of our favorite examples of easy and adaptable recipes. You can make it on Sunday and use the chicken in meals all week.

Basic shredded chicken can be easily made in a slow cooker while you prep other foods for the week, and all it takes is a family pack of chicken breasts, an onion and a little seasoning. In a couple hours, you can remove the cooked chicken from the slow cooker to either slice or shred for use later. Our favorite way to shred warm, cooked chicken breast is in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Just add the chicken to the bowl and turn it on low until the chicken separates into shredded pieces. We work in batches and then divvy it up into labeled storage bags for use all week.

The storage bags go into the fridge or freezer, and we pull from them to make Buffalo Chicken Sliders, Chicken and Wild Rice Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup, Chicken Enchiladas, Curried Chicken Salad, Chicken Sandwiches, Chicken Fajitas and Chipotle Burrito Bowls. You could also try topping a Caesar salad or making quick and easy tacos with it. The next time you think about weekly meal prep-made-easy, add this quick and delicious recipe to the mix.

Slow Cooker Bananas Foster Bread Pudding from Everyday Good Thinking @hamiltonbeach

Realizing you can make delicious desserts in the slow cooker has to be one of my favorite discoveries. If you think low and slow moist heat is only good for soups and stews, there’s a whole new world for you to discover. This world contains some of the best sweet treats you can find, like this bread pudding with a twist.

It tastes like the moistest banana bread you’ve ever had, and it’s perfect served as breakfast, dessert or a brunch side dish. It would be an impressive contribution to a potluck, and best of all, it’s incredibly easy to make.

The “hard sauce” served on the side is like a cross between frosting and glaze. The sweet cinnamon flavor adds a lot to the bread pudding, like the glaze on top of a cinnamon roll. The banana flavor is fantastic, but you could substitute any other mashable fruit, like fresh berries, cooked apples or stone fruit.

Brownies from a boxed mix are great in a pinch, but brownies made from scratch are even better, and making them is a fun activity for the whole family. These fudgy brownies are full of chocolate and cinnamon flavor with a hint of coffee and marbled cream cheese. This easy-to-follow recipe will take you from dessert zero to brownie hero in no time, and you just might use it to become the queen of the next PTA bake sale fundraiser.

SoftScrape™ 6 Speed Hand Mixer from @Hamiltonbeach

 

 

We love using the SoftScrape™ 6 Speed Hand Mixer with Case to make these marbled brownies. The special SoftScrape™ blades are designed to minimize the need to manually scrape the bowl with a spatula as you mix.
