I recently discovered the blog A Year of Slow Cooking. It’s written by a woman who made a New Year’s resolution to use her crock pot every day for a year. I’m always looking for new crock pot recipes. Usually I make pot roast or soup, but I know there’s more I could by cooking in my crock pot. Here’s a recipe looks easy and healthy (my favorite combination)!
1 lb chicken pieces (I used frozen breast tenderloins)
1 cup chicken broth
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 T dijon mustard
3 T maple syrup
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 tsp thyme
Put the chicken into the bottom of your crockpot (4 quart or larger) and toss it with the thyme, maple syrup, and dijon mustard.
Peel and slice the sweet potato, and add to the pot. Add the onion and garlic.
Pour in the chicken broth. Add the bay leaves.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5. This is done when the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables reach desired tenderness.
