Barbecue Crockpot Chicken

Recipes posted a year ago:

Nothing says summer like barbecue chicken and potato salad, right?  We are getting whole chickens (free range) from our CSP right now and it is always fun to come up with new sauces to cook them in.   In April, I posted this recipe with homemade barbecue sauce.  This recipe is similar, but with some slight differences.  Prep time is minimal. Look for potato salad recipe as our next post.

Moroccan Chicken

Recipes posted a year ago:

The best part about having a slow cooker is that you can toss a bunch of ingredients into it in the morning, and when you get home you’ve got a tasty one-pot meal ready to eat.  This was exactly what I did this past Sunday, when I knew I’d be out running errands most of the day.

Basil Roasted Chicken and Squash

Recipes posted a year ago:

This recipe came about while we were recently on vacation in sunny Arizona (where we were able to get plenty of Vitamin D).  We had the opportunity to spend a week with Karen’s parents in a vacation condo – which afforded us the chance to cook our own meals instead of spending a week eating at restaurants.  We made a point to bring a handful of different spices with us, and then made a stop at the local grocery store as soon as we had checked into our condo to stock up the fridge.  After a lazy morning followed by an afternoon at the pool, we threw this together in just a short time (aside from the time in the oven).

Chicken Fajitas

Recipes posted a year ago:

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo – so what better recipe to post today than one inspired by the great flavors of Mexican and Southwest cuisine.  While purists may complain that fajita traditionally refers to a specific cut of beef, no one can argue that the word today has been broadened to include any number of meats seasoned, grilled, and mixed with sautéed bell peppers and onions and served with a healthy helping of guacamole.

This recipe needs to marinate overnight, so you’ll want to run out and get the ingredients today so that you can have these ready to serve at your fiesta tomorrow!

Chicken Pot “Pie” Soup

Recipes posted a year ago:

In the past we have enjoyed a great chicken pot pie recipe, but of course the word “pie” generally insinuates some type of crust which often contains wheat.  I suppose I could have made up my own crust from almond flour or another grain-free flour, but really lets be honest… I just like the filling.   This is delicious and smells so good!  You can use most any type of vegetables that you have on hand for this.  “Think outside the recipe.”

Ironman Cacciatore

Recipes posted one year ago:

My friend Neil and I have recently reconnected.  We have known each other since middle school, but haven’t talked much until our 20-year-reunion and of course, Facebook.  He has completed two Ironman triathlons and many other triathlons and marathons; too many to count!  I have recently decided to learn how to swim properly so that I can compete in a sprint triathlon and Neil has been teaching me to swim and I in turn help him make healthier food choices.  It is a win-win for both us.

He recently shared a couple of things with me.  The first was showing me this beautiful quilt that his mom made for him from all of his event t-shirts.  For those of you who know me, you know I love love love homemade/handmade things.  What a gift to know someone spent a lot and time and effort to make something for you.  My favorite quote on this quilt is, “Some people dream of great accomplishments, while others actually stay awake and do them.” {Pic is a bit blurry.. taken with my phone.. 🙂 }

The second thing he shared with me with me is this delicious recipe that he made up himself.  I tweaked it a bit based on what I had.  This is a wonderful Crockpot recipe although I didn’t do it this way due to unforeseen delay in my day.   It goes together quick either way, but I do recommend using the Crockpot to give the flavors even more time to come together.
