My girlfriends told me to start with the crock pot.
They keep telling me I can do this.
So I tried.
My BFF may or may not have had to walk me through making this while ON the phone with me last week.
CROCK POT HONEY CHICKEN
Uncooked chicken gives me the heebie jeebies, but here ya go
(my mom says I walked into the kitchen one time when I was little, and said "I don't EVER want to see chicken like that again" - it was uncooked, guess I took that to heart for too long)
Okay, thats better. Chicken on lock down in the crock pot.
Here is my cheat rice....complete with WW points written on the front - you're welcome. Ha.
I let mine cook too long in the crock pot.
I TOLD YOU I'm an AMATEUR!
I put it in on low from 11-3:30pm. Don't do that. I should have only let it cook for 3 hours on low. Not 4 1/2.
My husband said it was really good (he ate the leftovers too so I guess he wasn't lying) but by cooking it too long it was a soupier sauce and not the consistency of honey which would have been better. Oh well, I tried. Next time, right?
My BFF says when you make it right it is AMAZING and she's made it several times and it is a favorite. Thanks BFF.
Here is what it is supposed to look like
(I forgot to take an after pic of my honey chicken soup)
3/4 pound chicken (of your choice)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup chopped onion (or 1/16 cup onion flakes)
1/8 cup ketchup
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, put into crock pot. In a small bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, onion, ketchup, oil, garlic and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 3 hours or on high 1 1/2 hours. Chicken into bite size pieces, then return to pot and toss with sauce. Serve over rice or noodles.
To bake chicken as a 30 minute meal:
Dice chicken and season both sides with salt and pepper, place in 8x8 pan. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.

Don't hold me to that.
In other news,
We had a pretty snowfall on Sunday, but it didn't stick.
It was fun while it lasted, but it ain't no fun no more.
