This is a big, fat, unfortunate “no way” for me. (Even though the picture looks delicious!) However, I LOVE big flavor so if you don’t love big flavor, then give this one a try! I am always on the hunt for crock pot meals and since I don’t eat beef or pork and am not super crazy about beans, it’s pretty dang hard to find a crock pot meal that I can make!
I found this blog that referred to this blog as the “Top 10 Slow Cooker Meals of 2012”, so I checked it, and low and behold it was mostly chicken meals! Woo Hoo! Except, after saving them all to my meal planner and I then reading the blog, I discovered that the woman was from England… which, stereotypically, means meals that are most likely not full of flavor. Or so I am thinking. We shall see. However, the first of all the crockpot meals I planned, this was a big sad dinner. It was totally flavorless which could be because I don’t eat pork and therefore used turkey bacon, and unfortunately it cooked too long, which was my fault because I did one hour on high because I was yet again in a hurry (I need a time management manager!) and then 1 hour on low and I only made three chicken breasts. Anyway, I should have known there wasn’t much flavor just by the simple ingredients. If you are one to tweak recipes to your liking by adding things, please do. I will not make this one again because there are too many recipes and so little time!
