A simple recipe

I wanted to share a favorite crock pot chicken recipe that's simple and quick. As wife, mom, grandma, and caregiver in our currently-four-generation household, I'm always looking for great, quick, delicious, nutritious meals to prepare. Right now our supper table consists of an almost-84-year-old to a 27-month-old, and the two generations in between. Lots of palates to please! This chicken recipe definitely works for all of us, and I hope you enjoy it, too.

Crock Pot Chicken
Add chicken parts (whatever you like)
1 chopped onion
3-4 stalks chopped celery
salt and pepper to taste
1 minced garlic clove (or more to taste)
1 tsp. curry powder
1 tsp. dried parsley (or chop fresh if you have it)
Cook on low for several hours until tender and serve with brown rice.

Yum!!!!!!!! This smells so aromatic and enticing. It's flavorful without being hot (use more curry if you want a hot version). You could also sprinkle toasted or chopped almonds on top for a little crunchy interest. Add a salad or a hot vegetable and bread and you have a wonderful meal.

This is easy for an on-the-go day. You can start the crock pot early in the morning and enjoy a hot supper at the end of the day.

This is an old standby of mine that never fails to please. When Mama's mouth was so sore after having a lot of dental work done, I cooked this and she was able to eat and enjoy it. Mom's an old-style country cook who always prepared amazing food, but I do all the cooking now. When she smacks her lips and tells me how much she enjoyed something I've prepared, it warms my heart.
