Slow Cooking

Just in time for the new school year, your best investment will be a slow cooker.  I bought one 6 years ago and it sat in a box in the garage and thankfully, Sears wouldn’t take it back.  Last year, I opened the box and started slow cooking.  I must say that nothing feels better than throwing together a few ingredients in the morning and having a savoury dinner ready by the afternoon with no work inbetween.  Nothing.

For tonight’s dinner, I defrosted a package of boneless chicken breast and put it along with the following in the cooker:

1 jar apricot jam
1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chicken broth

Set on low for 4-5  hours….and voila, tender chicken in a beautiful tangy sauce.  Add rice and you are done.  One tip – when done cooking, always take off the lid of the slow-cooker so that the food doesn’t dry out.

Here are two websites/blogs that have lots of great recipes!
