Taco chicken bowls $10.66 recipe / $1.33 serving

Taco chicken bowls $10.66 recipe / $1.33 serving
This recipe is definitely “slow-cooker 101”. It’s probably one of the first recipes that most people learn to make in their slow-cooker. In fact, some version of Slow Cooker Taco Chicken Bowls is probably included in that little mini recipe book that comes with the slow-cooker when you buy it. BUT, I had to post it because I know there are probably a lot of you who haven’t made it yet and I can’t bear the thought of you missing out. This recipe is great for bachelors, students, or the chronically busy because it’s a “dump and heat” recipe. All you do is dump all of the ingredients together in a pot, and let it cook. I’m a black bean lover so next time I’m going to use two cans (or two can’s worth of homemade) beans and extend the recipe even further. Oh, also, this freezes well. Okay, one more thing.

General Tso’s Chicken It’s difficult to imagine that anyone in China has ever eaten anything even remotely resembling General Tso’s Chicken. Even the origins of the dish are a little murky. Ostensibly a delicacy with origins in the Hunan province (though Hunan cuisine doesn’t typically feature very much sweetness, opting instead for sour flavors), and named after General Tso Tsung-tang, the dish’s “history” reads like the stuff of legend, or at least, the stuff from the back of an imaginative Chinese restaurant menu in NYC. In the United States, however, it is the number one selling item in Chinese takeout restaurants; often, a combination of heavily-breaded overcooked chicken tossed in a thick, gloppy, sickeningly-sweet brown sauce, with a few dried chiles thrown in for good measure. I had never been exposed to the dish until my first year in college, where the school’s hospital-style dining program was wildly out of sync with its high tuition. Today, everything changed.

Spicy Pulled Chicken By Lauren Zembron, on December 15th, 2010 Do you like spicy food? I’m talking lip-tingling, sinus-clearing, runny nose-inducing spicy fare. Like this pulled chicken. Thanks to the trifecta of a whole jalapeno pepper, chipotle chile powder, and cayenne pepper, this Spicy Pulled Chicken definitely lives up to its name. I made this spicy pulled chicken on a cold, rainy afternoon, (where’s the snow, Boston?!) Plans for leftovers include pulled chicken quesadillas with an avocado & Greek yogurt sauce for dipping. Spicy Pulled Chicken serves 4-6 Ingredients: Directions: Heat a drizzle of oil in a large dutch oven (or other heavy-bottomed pot) over medium heat. *I like to make the pulled chicken early in the afternoon, let it sit at room temperature (off of the heat) for a few hours, and then warm it through right before serving.
