As February draws to a close, it's time to wrap up my latest "Pin It and Do It" effort. This month I've been focusing on slow cooker chicken recipes. You already know how much I love my crockpot and, since chicken is always a popular family dinner, combining the two seemed like a win-win proposition. These four recipes were the clear favorites.
Chicken Tikka MasalaI selected this pin from Real Simple magazine because it called for garam masala, an Indian spice blend I recently purchased for another recipe. The cucumber relish perfectly balanced the chicken spices. (my pin)
Crockpot Chicken FajitasThis recipe from Stacy Makes Cents was almost too simple! Just put everything in the crockpot and shred the chicken before serving - that's it. Adding a little less chicken broth (I used the full half cup) is the only change I'll make next time. The photo is from Pinterest - I didn't have time to get one of my own. (my pin)
Crockpot Italian Chicken
This is actually a Weight Watchers recipe I found at LaaLoosh. It requires a little stovetop prep, but is well worth the extra effort. The chicken was delicious, but be sure you have fresh parsley on hand. The color really adds to the presentation. Also, I used all baby portabella mushrooms instead of a mix. My photo was too dark, so I'm using one from Pinterest. (my pin)
Crockpot Indonesian Chicken
Here is another Weight Watchers recipe from LaaLoosh. I love coconut milk, lime, and coriander, and knew this would be a hit. I used a combination of chicken parts instead of all drumsticks. Yum. Again, the photo is from Pinterest. I'm convinced food photography is an art! (my pin)
There's nothing like having a meal nearly prepared by dinnertime. Just steam some fresh vegies, and you're good to go. I could happily use my crockpot every night, especially during the winter. Do you have a favorite slow cooker recipe to share?
Thanks again for hosting, Trish. My family loves this challenge!
