Our first snow day of the winter season today. It’s ten after eight and we’re all still in pajamas, but nobody seems to be in a hurry to get dressed. My husband will have to eventually so he can get the snow out of the driveway and get his brother to a doctor appointment, but the rest of us are in lazy bum mode.
Sprung a new recipe on my family last night. I made a “roast” chicken in the crockpot, using Angie’s recipe. Putting it in breast down seems unnatural to me, but it worked. I was concerned about knowing when it was done since I couldn’t use the pop-up timer, but when I tried to nudge the chicken out of the way a little to get to the drippings and it totally fell apart in a pile of meat and bones, I assumed it was done. It was good!
I’m not sure how I managed to screw up the gravy, but it was the consistency of water, so I dumped it and rummaged for a jar of gravy in the cupboard. All I had was turkey-flavored, but it was better than flavored water.
Will I make it again? Probably. My husband says the crockpot’s cheaper to run than the oven, so I should stick to that. My issue is that my family only eats the white meat, so I’ll be throwing away half the chicken. I need to find a good, flavorful crockpot recipe for boneless chicken breasts.
But any night that a new recipe doesn’t end with ordering a pizza is a good night!
