yesterday, i decided to cook a whole chicken. in the crockpot. it went against my better judgement, but in the end, it worked out.
I added a little water in the bottom of the crockpot, shoved the chicken in (it was a package of frozen 'parts' that made up a whole) and threw a bit of olive oil, some salt, pepper and garlic powder over the top. oh, and i sprinkled some dried basil on because raw chicken is gross.
i let it cook forever until it fell apart, then when it was cool, i chopped it up. i got almost 5 cups of chicken, which is quite a haul. i had to strain out the chicken from the broth, which i put in the fridge. once it was chilled, i took the fat off the top, leaving some good broth for sauces/soups/etc.
last night, i had some brown rice, salsa, shredded cheese and chicken for a little mexican bowl dinner.
tonite or tomorrow, i am going to have this recipe i found on pinterest:
I also have spinach in the fridge, so i can add a bit of protein to my salad.
and of course, i can throw some in the freezer for a later date.
it's not chocolate chips, but it's a start :)
