What Would Betty Do Logo Tequila Lime Chicken

Crockpot Roasted Tequila Lime Chicken I’ve done the crockpot roasted chicken before, and while it comes out tender and juicy, it’s not exactly flavorful.

What Would Betty Do Logo “Why Not Make Chicken Soup” Soup

The other night, after finishing with our store-bought rotisserie chicken, my husband decided to take the carcass, toss it in our large stock pot, cover it with water and simmer.
