Uses poultry, is somewhat more expensive than white chicken, but ensures taste and tenderness. This recipe deserves it.

Re-use the broth to make soup, as a base of purees, or cool it and freeze it to have it ready in your pantry. It is advisable to give it a boil (raise) before using it to avoid the development of germs.

Once the cooking is finished do not leave the chicken inside the pot, as it would continue cooking and would not come out so tender. Be prepared to be aware, this recipe is not one of going to the movies and carefree for hours.

The skin comes out whole and cooked, if you want to take advantage of it, cut it in strips and fry it or in the oven; sure someone at home gives a good account of some chicken skin as an appetizer.

If you have a kitchen thermometer, it is advisable to use it to control the temperature, since the temperature / time of each slow cooker are relative values. Open the lid at the time of cooking and prick with the thermometer in the fleshy part of the chicken. Repeat the operation until it reaches 55º and drain it to cool.
