Sour Cream and Bacon Crockpot Chicken Recipe type: dinner Prep time: Cook time: Total time:
A while back one of my wonderful Facebook readers, Erin Burns, shared a delicious crockpot recipe with me. I’ve made it about 5-7 times now and it is super yummy. I’ve also shared the recipe with family and friends and they have enjoyed it as well. I love that it partners well with pasta and my kids gobble it up.
This meatless Monday thing, I’m getting the hang of it. Don doesn’t like the idea of meatless Mondays (Boys. They like meat).
Until now I have only tried honey chicken at the local Chinese buffets here in Michigan. Most of the honey chicken at the buffets I find a little too sweet for my liking. I decided I wanted to give it a try at home and came across a recipe that looked pretty good, and indeed it was. Basically this is no different than any other Chinese chicken recipe. The chicken is first battered, deep fried and then coated with a thick sauce.
I have a firmly held belief that the most important lessons in life are learned in Kindergarten. For this reason (and many others) when my five year old speaks, I listen. Oftentimes she’ll say something that has me stifling a giggle (Katy Rose does not like for folks to laugh at anything she says right now unless she clearly states that it is a joke beforehand), but others she’ll speak something truly profound and in her innocence has no idea that she has just opened her mama’s eyes to wisdom once again. Yesterday, we were sitting in the living room together.
ummm... we made these twice last week. that should tell you how good they are... or how obsessed i am with any kind of cheesy bread. cheddar and herb biscuits adapted from here (along with picture above) Biscuits: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons shortening 3 tablespoons butter, cold (or room temp works too) 1 cup buttermilk (i never have buttermilk so i use 1 c milk and 1 1/2 tsp vinegar... let them sit together until little bubbles appear on the top, about ten min.) 1 1/4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (i pretty much do 2 cups) Buttery Topping: 3 tablespoons melted butter 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes (not necessary... just pretty) 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder pinch of salt

This was a cinch to make and seriously delicious. Casey and I both loved it and it will definitely be a regular on our menu. It made a fabulous meal served with Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Walnuts .
