I’ve been in a funk. I don’t really think it has much to do with my diet, but it certainly isn’t helping. I decided to try one of the paleo recipes I found on-line. It’s a crock pot recipe which is right up my alley.
Crock Pot Balsamic Chicken
Wow, I didn’t really look at the nutritional info when I made this, but it looks like a pretty healthy dish. Maybe a little high in sodium?
Ok, I have to be honest. The smell of this cooking made me think it was going to be awful. It just smells like balsamic vinegar cooking in a pot. Not really the most appetizing thing in the world. But, it’s actually quite tasty. I used chicken breasts, but next time and maybe every time I cook chicken in a crock pot, I’m going to use boneless thighs. The chicken was a little dry and I think that the thighs would be less dry.
I did make a bunch of other things this week. Somewhere along the way it was decided that it would be a great idea to have a crock pot at work and I made little smokies in it and shredded bbq chicken in it. Neither of those came out much better than edible. Especially the chicken. If you stumble across a recipe with chicken, bbq sauce and orange marmalade, don’t try it. Learn from my mistake.
