So…I love chicken.
It is so versatile, healthy and just plain delicious.
The best part about this chicken dish in particular is that it’s cooked in a crock pot. Throw it all in the pot in the morning and come home to hot and ready to eat dinner!
If you’re paranoid like me, you may spend the day at work praying your house isn’t burning down because the crock pot caught on fire. But when you get home and realize it’s perfectly safe and sound, AND the chicken looks like it does in these pictures, you may just jump for joy…literally.
The recipe calls for white wine, so I thought drinking a white wine along with the dish would compliment it well. But I love red wine too much so poured a glass of that as well. I took a sip of the white, but ended up drinking the red while Greg enjoyed the white. Fine with me.
I really need to start using my crock pot more often. It is just too easy that I really don’t have an excuse not to.
Find the recipe for Jessica’s Crock Pot Parmesan Chicken here. I halved the recipe and used broccoli as my vegetable of choice. It was the perfect amount for Greg and I, plus a small serving left over for lunch the next day.
Today my chicken-loving self will have to go without chicken, or any meat for that matter, because of Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. Last year, I gave up meat altogether. It was tough, and I craved burgers more than anything. This year, I’ll be doing something different for Lent so I’ll only be a vegetarian on Fridays. That leaves six other days each week to cook some meaty recipes in the crock pot. I better get cookin’!
