For the love of chicken

So Brandon is all about me making him chicken however he gets very bored with me making the same dishes all the time. This leaves us at a catch 22 because I only have time to make things that are quick because I am at work till 7:15 and he wants things that take a long time to make. Whats a girl to do? I tried looking for some good crock pot recipes but many of them require a lot of preparation before the meat even gets to the pot and to me that defeats the whole purpose. So what does this girl do I call my pa pa because he makes this amazing stewed chicken that just falls right off the bone and absorbs all this amazing flavor it is amazing!! (Almost makes me want to give up being a vegetarian) I am hoping I can load all the ingredients up in a crock pot and make the deliciousness for Brandon. Now my pa pa usually served this over polenta because he is a traditional Italian but I am thinking I may do something a little different like egg noodles or even rice. So I am asking you bloggers for any additional ideas you may have to spice up chicken in a fast easy way!!


  1. Throw your chicken in a crock pot with salsa....your chicken can even be frozen... I would maybe do it on your lunch break... Put the crock pot on low and the chicken will just fall apart... I usually make chicken tacos with it!

  2. polenta is really the only way - if you are making stewed ckn with tomatoes. But polenta is not hard - and you can make it in about 30 minutes :)

  3. I am not worried about making the polenta but I just dont really like it. BLAH!
