White whine chicken!

Happy Sunday! I was inspired to use my slow cooker again! This time, I made a white wine herb chicken dish. I was inspired by this recipe.

My goal was to not use salt in my dish. I wanted to be really healthy, haha! My plan was just to use Mrs. Dash salt-free herb seasoning, black pepper, and garlic powder, pictured below. However, I realized how important salt is. In the end, I had to add some garlic salt to my dish to bring out the flavor in the chicken. It did not have much flavor even with my salt-free seasonings.

This was a basic dish, with simple and minimal ingredients. I, of course, modified the recipe once again. I had put the slow cooker on high and cooked it for four hours. But because the entire pot was filled with chicken, four hours was not enough time. I had gone out for the day and when I had returned, the chicken on the top was not entirely cooked. But since we didn’t eat the dish that evening, I didn’t cook the chicken further. I transferred the chicken into baking pans to bake the next day.

Talk about chicken galore! We ate this dish for days, haha! I was chickened out!

Have a great week!

Good ol’ bourbon chicken!

Aloha!!!

Last year, I had made a slow cooker bourbon chicken. It turned out really yummy. It was my first time cooking with bourbon. That was exciting and super successful! We all enjoyed it! Something different for sure!

I have been loving the slow cooker. It makes life so much easier. Greatest invention ever!

Bam! The ingredients. It was A LOT! But all so needed to create a delicious sauce!

This is the recipe that inspired my dish. I, of course, made it my own! I’m a tweaker!!!

My mouth is watering!

This was so good over quinoa or rice. The sauce was sweet, tangy, and spicy! A little bit of everything. Yummy!

Have a great weekend!

 

Gimme some brown suga!

Happy Sunday! My apologies for the hiatus. You know how life is- crazy! I hope to post entries more often. I do have my social media platforms available for viewing and commenting (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter). I try to post pictures regularly on those platforms.

A couple months ago, I made some brown sugar chicken in a Crock Pot. I used the time-lapse video feature on my phone. That is my favorite now! Check it out. It’s pretty cool.

Ingredients used:

  • Chicken thighs (you can use whatever piece of your choosing)
  • Carrots
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pepper
  • Himalayan salt
  • Brown sugar

Cooked on low heat for eight hours. You can also cook it on high heat, if you’re pressed for time.

Simple and easy. What’s left there to say?

Have a great week. I’ll be back!!!

Mmm, slow cookers are one of the best inventions ever!

Mama mia! Why haven’t I taken advantage of slow cookers more often in the past? I absolutely love it! My dad would occasionally make dinners in the Crock Pot and it would be soo delicious!

So, one weekend, I decided to make one of my dad’s Crock Pot dishes- chicken with Cream of Mushroom soup sauce. I added frozen mixed veggies, carrots, potatoes, and onions. Yum! I wanted to test out the slow cooker. Before I started my busy afternoon of errands, I put all of the ingredients in the Crock Pot and set the cooker to low for eight hours.  I started with the vegetables first. Chopped them up and put them in the pot. Then added chicken thighs and breasts, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with thyme, pepper, garlic and pepper seasoning, and Hawaiian salt. Finally, I added the Cream of Mushroom soup and diluted it with a little bit of water, so it wouldn’t be so thick. Stirred it to get the sauce evenly in the pot, covered it, set the timer, and left for the long day ahead.

When I returned home in the evening- violà! The chicken came out so tender and the dish amazing! This was served with egg noodles. Yummy! It was such a simple and easy dish. Just typing this and reminiscing at these pictures are making me hungry. I gotta go! Haha!

Have a great week!
