Gooooooood morning!! Did everyone have a fantastic weekend? I know I did…here’s what was up over here:
I never made it back to “visit” on the blog yesterday, but did have a pretty productive morning, followed by a fairly relaxing evening. It was fantastic…a little football, a little reading, a Redbox movie (Jay chose “That’s My Boy” – not baaaad) and an easy coffee table dinner waiting in the crockpot.
Funny story…so I’ve actually had this chicken recipe hanging out on the side of my fridge for, probably, well over a year now. I have no idea why, but I just never think to make it. I look at it, I know it’s there, but that’s about the extent of that.
So yesterday morning before heading out to the grocery store, I happened to spot it again and decided to finally put it to use. I actually already had everything except for the chicken, so it was suuuuuper easy to throw together.
I literally just dumped everything into the crockpot on top of 5 small chicken cutlets, stirred it all around, and let it cook on high for about 5 hours. Jay said that when he looked at it cooking, it sort of reminded him of chicken and biscuits, so he requested biscuits to go with it. Since I already had some Bisquick on hand, I quickly mixed up a small batch while getting everything else ready.
My husband can be a pretty smart man, I’ll tell ya. It tasted absolutely delicious with the biscuits, and the chicken was so tender that it was practically falling apart. If you guys are ever in need of a quick meal in the crockpot, I’d totally recommend this one.

- Biscuits (1-2 per person)
- Mix all ingredients together in crockpot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. Serve on top of your favorite biscuits. Enjoy!
Along with our chicken and biscuits, I cooked up some baby carrots and green beans for some added veggies and color.
This totally reminded me of a meal that I would have grown up with…it has my dad’s name written ALL over it.
I think I got a little heavy handed with the spinach this morning…
What started out as some scrambled eggs with spinach and feta cheese wound up being more like a spinach scramble. Definitely way more spinach than eggs, but I’m totally cool with that. It tasted awesome AND I’ve already got about 3 cups worth of fresh spinach in the ‘ol tummy. Sweeeeet.
On the side, I had a couple of protein apple chunk muffins with some peanut butter.
Lots of variety – gotta love that!
***OCTOBER YOGA CHALLENGE UPDATE***
I decided that since we’ve only got three more days in the month, I’m just going to hold off on doing the last update to the challenge until this Thursday, November 1st. That way we can all just do a final wrap-up for the month.
Question for the Morning:
What sort of meals remind you of when you were growing up?
A few for me: chicken and biscuits (which my mom hated but made because my dad loves it), spaghetti with mom’s sauce and garlic bread, homemade pizza, roast beef with mashed potatoes and peas, meatloaf, chicken casserole (made with a Bisquick top), hot dogs with Kraft macaroni and cheese
