As I mentioned in my previous post, last night when I was faced with the question “What’s for dinner?” from my husband, I totally choked. So I am going to try to redeem myself for that faux-pas tonight. To avoid a replay of yesterday, I decided that I would bust out the CrockPot and make some delicious Spicy Chicken and Rice. And then I decided I would share it with you.
I feel bad calling this a recipe because it is so dang easy, but here is a picture how to. Anyone can do it. Just adjust the amount of chicken and tomatoes for the number you are trying to feed. I am using 1lb. chicken and one can of tomatoes, and that is enough for four of five I suppose. BTW, this is great as leftovers too.
Step One: Gather the Goods
Step Two: Open the can of tomatoes. (If you can’t handle this step, you need to just give up. But I added a picture just in case)
Step Three: Cut the chicken into pieces.
Step Four: Dump chicken and tomatoes into CrockPot and stir.
Step Five: Turn CrockPot on.
Step Six: Clean up the huge mess your child has made in the two minutes Steps 1-5 took to complete.
Step Seven: Write your husband a reminder note.
Step Eight: Turn around and see child making another mess in the thirty seconds it took to write note.
Step Nine: Edit reminder note.
Step Ten: Go about completing (yeah right – more like chipping away at) the mile-long to-do list discussed in yesterday’s blog for around four or five hours or until the chicken is done.
Step Eleven: Cook some rice.
Step Twelve: Assemble in bowl by spooning chicken/tomato soup over rice, then sprinkle with cheese and chopped onion .
Step Thirteen: Pat yourself on the back. Holy Maria, I am awesome… whoops - I mean “you” - YOU are awesome. ;)
