CrockPot Chicken Cacciatore
After this dish was done, I noticed the sauce was thinner than I expected. It wasn’t until a few days later when I looked at the recipe again that I noticed I forgot the final step (adding cornstarch to thicken the sauce). The dish tasted very good, but the next time I make this I’ll make sure not to forget the final step.
I only used 1.5 pounds of chicken instead of 3-4 pounds like the recipe calls for. Also, I shredded the chicken with a knife and fork before serving (since it had been cooking for a long time in the CrockPot, the meat easily fell apart). Served over brown rice.
CrockPot Moroccan Lentil Soup
I made this using my homemade chicken stock instead of the vegetable broth it called for. This dish tastes divine with Greek yogurt. Served over brown rice.
Went to a dinner party at a friend’s house
This is the second time I’ve made Chana Masala. This time around, I used coconut oil while cooking the onions, garlic, and spices, and it definitely made a difference in the taste of the finished product. (I used olive oil cooking spray the first time and the taste isn’t nearly the same.) I didn’t add any lemon. Served with brown rice and Greek yogurt. This dish is very, very good.
I cooked another whole chicken in the CrockPot on Saturday and made homemade stock on Sunday.
