I remember joining the Soup's On Culinary Challenge with enthusiasm, but over a few month's time I forgot all about it. Thankfully, Raidergirl3 reminded me with her post today. I've read and tried recipes from several cookbooks since the challenge began last April. Since the challenge doesn't end until March 31, I have time to share my culinary experiences. Who knows, I may successfully complete a challenge for the first time in months!
I have the public library to thank for having this book on its shelves. I want to check it out again and try some more of the many recipes I listed that looked delicious.
It's such a satisfy feeling to throw a few items in the crock-pot, enjoy the aromas all afternoon and present a delicious to the family in the evening. The recipe I tried from this cookbook is Carmelized Onion Chicken. It was fun learning the technique of carmelizing onions.
The chicken is delicious, but it is a bit dry even though there is plenty of moisture in the crock-pot. I served the chicken with Funeral Potatoes and a tossed salad.
The best thing about this recipe is the leftover chicken. I cube it and freeze it in 2-cup amounts to use later in chicken fajitas, chicken quiche or whatever. After the first time I made this chicken, I doubled the recipe so I always have several baggies in the freezer to pull out whenever I need precooked chicken. It's some of the best flavored chicken ever.
