Well, here goes … I’m attempting using my crock-pot again, in an attempt to feed my family better AGAIN. Seems like I’m always failing on the whole menu planning, grocery shopping, saving money and eating well areas of my life! So, today I planned to make stuff in the crockpot while we were all at Sea Scouts. I found the recipe on Pinterest, but it is from a blog I’ve followed before – A Year of Slow Cooking. The Pinterest recipe calls for ribeye or some other steak, 3/4″ thick, but then says you can use chicken, too. Since I don’t have any steak on hand, I’m using chicken.
Here’s what I did. I’ll let you know how it turned out later.
Bottom layer – 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sprinkle of garlic powder, sprinkle of savory herbs, 1/4 c. brisket sauce (because, well, I thought it was BBQ sauce, but found out it wasn’t )
Second layer – five (rather small) potatoes, poked, oiled, salted and wrapped in foil. Didn’t have corn on the cob and didn’t think there was room to do a packet of frozen veggies. I’ll just make some on the side later.
Covered crockpot, turned on “Auto” and walked away.
