Zesty But Dry

3 Sep

My husband and I are trying to find good recipes to cook up in the crock pot. I found a cool Crock Pot recipe book on clearance at Marshall’s the other day and was very eager to find some dinner entrees in there. Unfortunately I didn’t look at the book thoroughly and discovered that the whole section on entrees was missing! So I had to go and return it since there was no other copy to replace it. I will continue looking for recipes online. I just found out about a community page on Facebook called “Crock Pot Girls”. I might get some pointers there. Plus, my mother-in-law is sending us some of her recipes so I can’t wait.

In the meanwhile we tried to dress up our chicken breast recipes and found one from AllRecipes.com called “Zesty Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken“. Can’t say it was awesome though. The chicken came out too dry. I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to flip the chicken mid-way through the cooking or maybe shred the chicken after a few hours in the crock pot. I thought you’re just suppose to let the crock pot do it’s own thing until dinner time. I guess the search for a repeatable crock pot recipe continues.
