I’m sorry you got excited about that title and thought something else… but this is serious. I am breaking up with my Crock Pot.
I’m a busy lady.
I like to spend time in the kitchen but when I am really pressed for time, I like to call my Crock Pot, my live-in lover, My saviour, My knight in shining ceramic plates that cooks my dinner for me – to provide a no fuss dinner when i get home from a long day (of shopping).
And I have been really bad at replenishing my groceries (menu planning FAIL) i have made use of the things that are just sitting in my freezer and pantry.
Free Range Organic Chicken legs. On sale when i bought them… just cause they were on sale. I put them in the freezer to be forgotten. And when i dug them out of the freezer I thought slow cooking them in some bbq sauce would be tasty.
But then i was out of bbq sauce.
And thats when I recalled a recipe of yester year. Of my memories cooking for mom in her kitchen. When i lived with the parentals and ALWAYS came home to a cooked meal.
Diet Coke Chicken.
Are you gagging?
The last time i made this- i remembered it being good. Im not gonna say that its been about 7 years since i have made said chicken… im not gonna say it. So dont make me.
Once my chicken legs defrosted I lined up my live-in lover with some plastic (so i wont have to do dishes) and heavily sprinkled garlic salt onto the chicken… because i like my bbq sauce a little garlicky…
What is the crock pot smell? I cant describe it. Its just weird. Its not natural…
