Recipe Friday – Slow Cooker Chicken Verde

Standard

Hi everyone!! Hope your week is going great!! If you’re like me you are usually busy but want to have a home cooked meal. What better way then a slow cooker or “crockpot” to actually get it done? I love my slow cooker because I can just literally dump everything in it and let it cook while I do things around the house. I use at least once a week 🙂

Here is one of many recipes I have found for the slow cooker…especially when it comes to chicken.  Enjoy!!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon ghee or coconut oil
  • 6 chicken legs, bone-in and skin-on
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed into a paste
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 Teaspoon ground coriander
  • 2 Cups roasted tomatillo salsa (store-bought or homemade), divided

 

Directions:

  1. Heat the ghee in a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken generously with salt and pepper. Mix the garlic, cumin, and coriander in a small bowl, and rub it all over the chicken. Working in batches, brown the chicken on all sides, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Pour 1 cup of the salsa into the slow cooker and arrange the browned legs on top. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Serve the chicken with the remaining 1 cup of the salsa.

Recipe Friday – Raisin Bread

Standard

Hi all! Hope your week is going great. Today’s recipe is one of my favorites: Raisin Bread. I can remember growing up going to the bread store to buy bread and my mom would sometimes (when we able to) buy specialty breads like pumpernickel, rye, and raisin bread. It was always a special treat because normally all we would get is the plain white sandwich bread. The loaves were always smaller then the normal loaf and we would save it for the weekend to have it during breakfast. I remember waking up on Saturday, sitting in front of the TV watching cartoons and eating the raisin bread toasted with butter and glass of milk or orange juice and my mom would be up cleaning house. I always looked forward to those days. It was a great start to Saturday morning. 🙂

Well this is not the store bought one but it’s not a bad recipe. The reason I like this one is it does not require yeast. I try to find bread recipes that don’t require yeast because of my daughter’s yeast sensitivity. She’s not allergic to the point it debilitates her but it will set her eczema off and make her miserable.  Here it is:

 

RAISIN BREAD

 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease one 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
 2. in large bowl measure flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon, and
      raisins. Stir thoroughly. Make a well in center
 3. In small bowl beat egg until frothy. Mix in melted butter and milk. Pour into well. Stir
      just enough to moisten. Scrape into greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan.
 4. Bake in 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven for 1 hour. Serve plain or toasted with
     butter.

Recipe Friday – Banana Stuffed French Toast

Standard

Hi Everyone!! Here’s a sweet treat for breakfast…enjoy!!

 

Banana-Stuffed French Toast

 

Ingredients:

1 Firm ripe Banana

3/4 cup half-and-half

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

four 1-inch-thick slices day-old bread

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

confectioners’ sugar for dusting

warm maple syrup

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Cut banana into 1/4-inch-thick slices and in a bowl whisk together half-and-half, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut bread slices horizontally almost in half, leaving 1 edge intact. Stuff each pocket with 4 to 6 banana slices (do not overstuff). In a baking dish just large enough to hold bread slices in one layer, arrange slices and pour custard over them. Soak slices, turning them over once or twice to allow bread to absorb all liquid, about 15 minutes.
  3. In a 12-inch non-stick skillet melt butter over low heat until foam subsides and cook slices until golden, about 5 minutes on each side
  4. Dust French toast with confectioners’ sugar and serve with syrup.
