Crock Pot Update

Well here's an update on my crock pot adventure.  I'd love to say that it was a complete success and I'll be making it over and over again, BUT that's not the case.  The flavor was great but the chicken was waaayyy overdone.  The recipe said to cook it on low for 8 hours, but it really needed about 4.

It still looked great, didn't it?  Too bad it was powdery inside.  Guess I'll know for next time.  On a better note, I served the chicken with one of my favorite summertime side dishes. Sliced tomatoes with goat cheese, balsamic vinegar, and a basil chiffonade.

I love this dish because it's light, colorful, and healthy, but most of all it's super simple! No cooking involved.  Just slice the 'maters, top with the remaining ingredients, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. What are some of your favorite simple summertime dishes?

  1. I've dealt with both ends of that spectrum when using a crock pot - I made a chicken recipe (for boneless breasts) that said cook on low for 6 hours, when really it should have been 4, max...and then I made bone-in chicken that said cook on high for 5 hours when it should have been more like 8! talk about dinner not being ready on time :-/
