Chicken In a Hurry - The Bitter Side of Sweet

I went to some friends house. Actually I try to make it a point to go every Wednesday for a cooking club. It is about a 40 minute drive so I don’t always get to go but when the opportunity comes, I take it!  It is something I look forward to every Wednesday. I get the chance to learn new recipes and get to take that recipe home and use it there as well. We talk about different ways we prepare meals or dishes. It is a great time and I am so glad I get to be involved in it.

Chicken in a Hurry - The Bitter Side of Sweet

One of the ladies had a birthday not to long ago and this book was a present she received. So we all had a chance to thumb through it. This recipe Chicken in a Hurry was one that most of us have already made. I have made it twice. It is a great book for those who want to cook with crock pots and this recipe is great for those how have a large crowd they want to feed with little maintenance! We did have a debate weather the onion soup package was needed. I chose not to use it because I never have it on hand and I forgot twice to pick it up at the store. Also we debated some about the cooking time as well. After 3 hours my chicken was already falling off the bones. So technically this is done in 3 hours but to allow the flavors to enrich and deepen you want to cook it longer. Though I do not think it needs 7 to 8 hours. That is just my personal opinion. ENJOY!

    The directions state to salute onions but there aren’t any onions listed on the ingredients list. Just wondering how much onions are needed. Thanks.

    I’m with Billie. I talked to several friends because I really HATE crockpot chicken recipes. They said the skin had to come off the chicken first. When I made it it had zero glaze and a slimy look since the skin was still on. It was wholly unpleasant so I sent it straight time the oven. Is that a step that perhaps every other crockpotting human generally knows except me?
