This month I will do just about anything to avoid using my oven and since eating out isn't much of interest or an option I've been trying out some crock pot meals. For some reason when I think of using the crock pot my mind jumps to roast with carrots and potatoes, so I had to find some recipes to get me out of that mindset. I wanted to share some of my recent favorites.
Fauxtisserie Chicken from Our Best Bites was true to description and really does taste like what you would get our your local grocery store. I followed the instructions and then added 1 cup of water to the bottom of my crock pot and it turned out perfect. I paired this with a summer salad and it was delicious!
Peach Whiskey Barbecue Chicken from the Pioneer Women. I followed the initial steps using the stove-top but when the instructions say to put it in the oven I put it on the crock pot for 2-3 hours and the chicken was fall off the bone delicious!
Pepperoncini Beef Sandwich from Our Best Bites is another great one we have been enjoying all summer long. I use 2lbs of stew meat rather than what their instructions call for and it shreds just right. We serve this on toasted ciabatta bread topped with provolone or mozzarella cheese.
Apricot Glazed Pork from Yonder Way Farm. I have also done this same recipe using stew meat and the results are equally tasty in my opinion. Serve this with Hawaiian rolls and your sure to have people coming back for more.
What have you been serving up in your kitchen lately? I would love it if you linked up some of your favorite crock pot or stove top recipes.
