The Crock Pot

If your curious about my gigantic crock pot, (I was thrilled to get it for Christmas!) you can find it here.

Seriously, this thing is HUGE! It’s perfect for a large family…or for people who host a lot.

Frozen Or Thawed Chicken Breasts?

It doesn’t matter!

If I didn’t remember to thaw out the chicken breasts, I just throw them in frozen.

The only difference is that I cook everything on high for an hour or two before turning it down to low for the remainder of the time.
