One of the "you tubers" I like to watch, Kimmy of She's in Her
Apron, issued a cookbook challenge encouraging her viewers to pull out some of their cookbooks they don't use a lot and pick a recipe or two to try each week. The goal is to fall in love with them all over again.
I love to use my slow cooker and I don't know why I don't branch out more from the same old recipes.
I guess I just fall back into the familiar.
This week I decided to slow cook a whole chicken and I pulled out my "big cookbook" of slow cooker recipes.
This recipe is my adaptation of Honey Baked Chicken.
I had a partial bottle -- a couple of tablespoons of Dijon mustard I wanted to use up.
I added a teaspoon of paprika.
There was just a touch over 2 tablespoons of honey in my bottle I wanted to use up, too.
I added a bit of salt and pepper and brushed it over my cleaned chicken.
I let it cook on high until the chicken was fall apart tender.
I picked all the meat off the bones.
I'm dividing it into three meals' portions.
1 portion for risotto with peas
1 portion for chicken tacos
1 portion for a stir fry
I know that is chicken three meals in a row, but the seasonings will give it totally different tastes each time and I think we will be fine with it.
