Seriously that’s the best title I could come up with
over the last month I have had 2 separate surgeries one on one hand one on the other for carpal tunnel
both done laproscopic (2 weeks apart) and are healing nicely…
but still quite sore at times despite outward appearances looking pretty good.
So I’ve not been blogging at all the last month too tired ….too sore for typing….and too busy some days to turn the computer on….
its amazing how many dishes and how much laundry can pile up with mom being out of commission just a few days!
(ok the above piles are not mine…but you get the idea)
so I needed to find something to make that would not take a bunch of dishes
would leave us with leftovers for hopefully as long as possible
so I dove into Pinterest
(if you haven’t seen Pinterest you must as long as you don’t mind getting lost in lots of cool ideas you’ll probably never have time to make!)
and this is what I came up with
slow cooker Brown sugar and Garlic chicken from Providence Design
and also free of most other allergens as well( as long as you use a wheat free soy sauce alternative)
now to be fair I followed their recipe pretty close except
I did it in a roasting pan in the oven
I used 9 boneless skinless chicken breasts
and I did not use hot pepper flakes(we’re not that into spicy)
other than that followed to a T and everyone…even the fussy eaters LOVED IT!
it is definitely going to be a make again.!
and here is how mine turned out:
the shredded chicken(after baking for several hours at 300 degrees)
the sauce after cooking with a little cornstarch(the specks are the minced garlic…I cheated and used the canned stuff from the grocery store)
final product, the sauced shredded chicken mixed together
we served on hard rolls
I believe it would go equally well with a side of rice or pasta.
on the side we had baked beans
(bushes bourbon and brown sugar variety)
(it was ruby red and juicy and full of sugary goodness)
its a good thing they liked the meal….it’s what they’ll be eating the rest of the week!
