RECIPE WED: Slow Cooker Honey Hoisin Chicken and Pork Carnitas

Simple slow cooker recipes for crazy busy days! These are great for holiday company - throw 'em together, switch on, eat when ready! I love food that keeps when everyone in the family is eating/hungry at different times. Just set your crock to keep warm and serve whenever!
SLOW COOKER HONEY HOISIN CHICKEN *************************************** >>>INGREDIENTS: *5-6 boneless chicken breasts *1/4 cup hoisin sauce *1/4 cup soy sauce *1/4 cup honey *1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth *1/4 tsp. ground ginger >>>INSTRUCTIONS: Put the chicken in the crockpot. Mix the other ingredients together and pour over the chicken. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 7-8 hours. ************************************************
SLOW COOKER PORK CARNITAS ****************************** >>>INGREDIENTS: *1 tsp salt *1 tsp garlic powder *1 tsp cumin *1/2 tsp oregano *1/2 tsp coriander *1/4 tsp cinnamon *1 (4 pound) boneless pork shoulder roast *2 bay leaves *2 cups chicken broth >>>DIRECTIONS: Mix together salt, garlic powder, cumin, oregano, coriander, and cinnamon in a bowl. Coat pork with the spice mixture. Place the bay leaves in the bottom of a slow cooker and place the pork on top. Pour the chicken broth around the sides of the pork, being careful not to rinse off the spice mixture. Cover and cook on low until the pork shreds easily with a fork, about 10 hours. Turn the meat after it has cooked for 5 hours. When the pork is tender, remove from slow cooker, and shred with two forks. Use cooking liquid as needed to moisten the meat. ***************************************************************************** "People in Slow Food understand that food is an environmental issue." ~Michael Pollan
