I love adding enough broth to cover the bottom of the chicken in order to make a hearty chicken soup recipe. Besides the tender and juicy chicken, you will also be able to enjoy the most flavorful and rich soup.
2. Crispy Rotisserie Style Chicken
On the other hand, if you prefer more like a rotisserie style, you don’t need to add any broth at all. Once the chicken is finished cooking in the crockpot. Carefully remove it and place it under the broiler for 5 minutes until the skin is slightly browned and crispy.
Let the chicken sit and cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting.
