Confession: I’ve been moving really slowly this week, like REALLY slow!
I’ve been sleeping a solid 8+ hours a night, spending tons of time with my snuggie, drinking plenty of tea and eating multiple squares of dark chocolate, and overall just dragging…
Not exactly sure why, but probably a multitude of reasons that I am working through combined with this cool winter weather. The good thing about moving slow is that there have been plenty of Cooper cuddles, reading time, and rest. The bad part is that not much else has gotten done this week in our house.
When I finally survived my Friday work day, I eagerly drove home, stopping to pick up dinner on the way. When I arrived, the BOY had already started a bit of cleaning. We sat down to dinner and caught up on the week behind and discussed the weekend (and the year) ahead. We have a bunch of things we’d like to do this weekend, but weren’t sure how it would all play out. After dinner, we caught up on cleaning before I returned to my snuggie. In reality, our house has been cold so that’s why it’s been my new blanket. Plus, it has pockets…so functional! I began to flip through our DVR and realized it was time to catch up on blogging. I owe you an AMAZING new recipe.
It’s another easy crockpot dish that is going to be added to our rotation for sure!
I used a mix of white and dark meat and subbed in broccoli for the squash (because the BOY doesn’t like squash). The broccoli was amazing in the sweet Asian sauce, so I’ll be adding in more next time!
So this Friday has been perfect for me to catch up with you and on my life. And with that…I will go back to catching up on my DVR!
What do you do on Fridays?
Anyone else dragging this week?
Easy Asian Sweet Chili Chicken
Easily Adapted from The 150 Healthiest Slow Cooker Recipes on Earth
1 sweet onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
2 cups(ish) broccoli florets
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken pieces (dark or light meat)
3/4 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
juice of 1 lime
2 tbs low sodium tamari sauce
2 tbs Thai fish sauce
4 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped
Arrange onion, bell pepper, and broccoli on the bottom of a slow cooker and place the chicken pieces on top.
In a small bowl, whisk together the chili sauce, lime juice, tamari, fish sauce, and garlic and pour it evenly over the chicken. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours on high or 4-5 hours on low, until the chicken is cooked through but still juice.
Note: this makes great leftovers!
