put the chicken in the pot, yo.

I have way more standby meals for the colder Michigan months than in the warm, sunny months.  Seriously, I am like the queen of comfort foods this time of year.

Admittedly we eat a lot of crock pot meals.  They are easy for this working parent family.  I throw it together the night before, Cort starts it before leaving for daycare drop-off/work in the morning, and we enjoy a tasty meal as a family in the evening.

I have made almost every kind of meat I can think of (other than fish…can you do fish in the crock pot? That seams nasty), but one of our family faves is from a recipe I found shoved in a crock pot book that is probably older than I am in my mom’s cupboard.

It’s just called “Chickin in a Pot” and it’s so easy!

I served it with noodles and corn because it's what was in the house, but really you could do anything with it!
