That's not a convoluted title or anything, eh?
We completely dropped the ball this week. (Or rather Ryan did, but I'm not one to point fingers or anything) What the Crock!?!? was completely last minute, what do we have in the house that takes absolutely ZERO prep work. It wasn't great, but it wasn't bad. For the amount of effort I put into it, it was pretty damn tasty.
Last week I tweeted that I needed a chicken recipe and two people suggested version of a sweet and sour/hot and sweet chicken. Otto's Mom sent me the link to PW's Hot & Sweet drumsticksand I tried it with chicken breasts - was pretty tasty!
This morning I had a whack of chicken thighs (yes, a 'whack' is a unit of measure) and half a jar of apricot preserves.
So I mixed up the preserves with some ketchup, soy sauce, chili sauce and some hot sauce.
And I was totally rebellious about it, too.
Didn't. Measure. A. Thing.
And the garlic?
I peeled it, sliced it in big chunks and threw it in.
I piled my chicken thighs in the slow cooker, poured the preserve/ketchup/etc mixture over the top, gave it a stir and set it on low.
I made some rice and steamed some broccoli to go on the side and that was dinner.
(My apologies for the garbage picture.
I served and took this picture with a mostly unhappy baby on my hip.
And the settings on my camera had been changed.
And I didn't realize that until after I had taken the pictures.)
