Slow Cooking Thursday


Todays recipe is one I really like but don't make often because Bob doesn't like the broccoli. He'll eat this, but it loses something when you pick the broccoli out! I must admit that I don't like plain broccoli either, but somehow it's okay in a recipe like this.
.
Sweet and Sour Chicken
1 pound boneless, skinless breast halves
2 - 9 ounce jars sweet and sour sauce
1 - 16 ounce package frozen loose pack broccoli, carrots and water chestnuts

hot cooked rice
1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

.
Cut chicken into 1 inch pieces. In a 4 quart slow cooker combine chicken, sweet and sour sauce and frozen vegetables. Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours. Serve over rice and sprinkle with almonds.

Hey Mari! I've seen your name and photo on JP's blog. Good to meet you! We'll be at Yongsan and have to report by August 1. There's a contemporary chapel called The ROCK (Relying on Christ in Korea), and we're friends with the chaplain and his family. I hope your son finds a home there and grows in faith while in Korea. We're looking forward to it. My email is on My Profile. He can contact us if y'all want to. Thanks!

OOOH. I love that extra crunch at the end. I bet some of those Chinese noodly things would be good, too! ;)

I think I have to pass on this one- You know I'm not a fan of sweet and sour. Maybe some day my taste buds will mature and it'll taste good to me!!

I bet my family would like this - they all love broccoli but not the water chestnuts. They could pick those out though!

Yum! That sounds great! I'll have to try that one next! This week I made the chicken and rice one. BUT, when I started to make it I realized I had the ingreadiants all messed up. I winged it and it was super yummy, next time it will be even better when I get the grocery list right! Here's what I did.
1 3/4 cup rice (all that was left!)
1 1/2 can cream mushroom soup
3/4 can water
can mushrooms
6 chicken breasts
dry veggie soup mix

See, I was seriously suffering mush brain. BUT it was awfully tasty anyways!

This sounds really good! The men in this house do not like broccoli so I am deprived of this wonderful vegetable. I may have to make this for myself while they are away next month. (;
