I’ll admit it. I LOVE Pinterest. I LOVE to eat. I don’t enjoy cooking, so why do I meander through Pinterest recipes?
Earlier in the week, I posted about being “fit enough to ________ “(fill in the blank). Whatever words you filled in likely require being healthy. Being healthy means eating well (remember, most of the time). So, I do search Pinterest for healthy recipes. I’m not promoting this site because I know it can be a time zapper. I appreciate it because it’s so easy to file and organize items for later. (I often limit my Pinterest use with a timer. Another story for another day.)
A friend pinned a simple slow cooker chicken recipe. What could be healthier than chicken with just a few seasonings? And, what could be easier than using the Crock Pot? (Useless info: I learned that Crock Pot is a brand name, and slow cooker is the generic term.) Note: I have never been fond of meat from a slow cooker. It seems to take on a texture that doesn’t appeal to me. I was skeptical, but the ease pulled me right in!
Here goes: 1. Remove skin from a whole fryer. 2. Rub with salt and pepper. 3. Put in the slow cooker for 3 1/2 – 4 hours on low. Done! Delicious!
I would love to give credit to the creator of this recipe, but I couldn’t begin to find him or her. You can experiment with other spices and/or add some carrots and potatoes. Lately we eat it right from the slow cooker with a delicious salad. My friend, Clair, used chicken prepared this way for enchiladas and enjoyed it too. The possibilities are endless, but the time it takes for a healthy meal is nothing at all! Freeze the extras if there are any.
I won’t get carried away with recipes at Sunshine with Waves, but this is so easy (even I can successfully do it) nutritious, and delicious, I just had to share. It’s a little sunshine in a slow cooker!
