Let me know if you have any questions. Wish you lived closer Steve & Monica!! I\'d make a batch and bring it over!!!

Just did a quick google map thingy "Finger Lakes NY to Kelowna, B.C."
2,651 miles, 44 hours driving time. Things would probably be a little cold by then.. Ha Ha


Thanks Again

RE: Good Simple Food
Here is another quick crock pot idea. Place chicken pieces in crockpot, add sliced onion, and green pepper if you like. Pour any bbq sauce of your choice over the top and let it cook on low all day. The chicken becomes very tender and will fall of the bones. You can you place it on buns for a sandwich or make sides to go with it.

RE: Good Simple Food
CROCKPOT CHICKEN CACCIATORE

Ingredients
6 chicken breasts, boneless (sliced in half)
olive oil
1 cup yellow onion, coarsely chopped
32 ounces tomato sauce, jarred
2 teaspoons dried oregano, (crushed)
2 teaspoons dried thyme, (crushed)
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
6 ounces sliced mushrooms, canned
1/4 cup dry red wine, (optional)
1 cup green pepper, coarsely chopped

Directions
1.Coat bottom of a skillet with olive oil, heat on stovetop set to medium heat, and brown chicken.
2.Drain and add chicken to stoneware.
3.Combine all other ingredients with chicken.
4.Place stoneware in slow cooker heating base, cover, and cook on Low for 5-7 hours or on High for 2-3 hours.

I have this recipe in my crockpot right now, minus the mushrooms or green peppers. Have made it with other veggies in the past, like summer squash and zucchini. Very versatile!!!

ENJOY!

OMG Debskis! I 100% must try that at my earliest opportunity! That looks great!

RE: Good Simple Food
Had the cacciatore tonight and I def needed to cook it longer than the recipe stated, prob bc some of my pieces were quite thick. Also, one thing I suggest is maybe 1/2 hour before you want to eat, shred or chunk the chicken up a bit (it should be falling apart nicely), and just let the meat rest for a bit in the sauce to soak up some of the flavor! Wish the kids liked peppers & mushrooms b/c I think they would really add a lot to the flavor, but it was still pretty good without it!

I made a ton if anyone wants to stop over!! ;-)

RE: Good Simple Food
Just a quick note debskis to let you know that we tried the "Italian Beef & Noodles" crockpot recipe yesterday. it turned out really good, Monica and I both thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to have something out of the crockpot that didn't taste like it came out of a crockpot..

Thanks Again....
