If you know me at all, you know Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. This year, since Halloween was on a Sunday, I managed to find a way a way to have three different costumes, yet completely forget to eat. One of the ingenuities of a crock pot is that it’s really easy to throw whatever you want inside of it and it will most probably turn out okay. This is the result of tossing together some leftovers with some chicken legs that were on sale at Key Food. To make this slightly healthier, you could remove the skin, but I was way too lazy this time, so I took it off while eating. When making this from your pantry, root vegetables, mushrooms and carrots all hold up really well in the slow cooker. Any liquid will truly do, but I suggest low sodium and mixing different liquids for fun. Enjoy!
- 5 chicken thighs
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon rosemary
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 1/2 pound small red potatoes, chopped
- 2 cups chicken stock, low sodium
- Half a light beer
- Splash of sherry
- Black pepper to taste
Throw the aromatics and onion into the pot.
Then the carrots and potatoes.
then some chicken stock and a splash of sherry, followed by the lone half a can of beer in my fridge. Cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 8, then enjoy! I forgot to take pictures of the end product, but instead I’ll give you this.
