So onto today~ I guarantee that I will not be having any vampire encounters in the near future. Why? Because my hands, my house, my breath, my pores, my skin, and probably my blood stream have the odor of garlic. Lucky for us that garlic is very much welcome in my home. Lucky for others that we'll be staying inside this evening.
Have you ever been over to The Pioneer Woman? I wanted to be all professional and take pictures of my ingredients, the step by step process, make it look real good, ya' know like she does. Well I got carried away and couldn't wait to get this dish going or digging in when it was done, so there are limited photos today (please forgive).
|How beautiful and springy is this anyway?|
I found the recipe HERE and changed it up just a tad...
-I didn't use oregano because I didn't have fresh on hand
-I used 2 celery ribs
-Lemon juice instead of wedges, about 2 teaspoons
-Prosecco is the white wine I used
-Cooked it in the crock pot on low for 6 hours
|See...I was ready to dig in & took a crappy phone pic.|
The flavors were great, I could taste a hint of the white wine and lemon juice, the onion and celery also put off nice aromas but had a very light taste. OMG the tender juicy chicken was falling apart so much I could barely get it on my plate. You can see in the picture that mine it all over the place, there was no pretty plating to this one. But I was slightly disappointed at the lack of the taste of garlic, which shouldn't be so after using 40 cloves. Next time I'm going to try this in the oven instead and stuff the chicken with more garlic in hopes to bring out the garlic more. Don't get me wrong, it was there, but I was expecting the garlic to basically punch me in the face. Overall, wonderful dish that my husband and daughter loved as well!
