Slow cooker meals are great for any time of year.  Simply set it and forget it and you have a tasty meal that is hearty, filling, and will feed the whole family.  That’s what my recipe for Slow Cooker Shredded Thai Curry Chicken is…. simple but delicious.  The chicken is braised in a coconut-curry mixture and is moist and tender.  The coconut-curry is Thai style with a base of coconut milk, onions, peppers (spicy), sugar (sweet), fish sauce (tangy), and lime juice (citrus)…it’s like a flavor explosion in your mouth.  You then finish the dish with fresh herbs and serve it over a bed of rice.

Cover and cook on LOW … Continue reading

Are you ever hosting a party or having a few guests over for dinner but don’t know what to serve?  I always struggle with what to cook because I want my guests to enjoy the meal but also want time to socialize and not be stuck in the kitchen.  Pulled chicken or pulled pork is always a good option.  You can prepare it in the slow cooker so it’s no fuss, it feeds a crowd, and is great to serve for a build-your-own-sandwich bar.  Or you can make it for yourself to enjoy for meals through the week or to freeze for later. Today, I want to share my 2 recipes for pulled chicken.  I haven’t tried these recipes with pork, but I don’t see any reason why you couldn’t substitute the chicken for pork to make pulled pork sandwiches.  If you do try this, let me know how it … Continue reading
