Easy, Peasy Chicken

Written by , Posted in Low Carb, Thoughts

On Wednesdays, I’m usually really busy editing the week’s show. I don’t have much time to work on dinner. So, I try to plan an easy meal that I can do in the Crock Pot. Last week, I had gotten a chicken from the add-ons section from Abundant Harvest Organics (from Mary’s Chickens – who, in my opinion, have the best organic chicken).

My friend Genevieve, of Create, Nourish, Share, found a spice store called Savory Spice Shop, in Boulder, CO, and loves to get her spices there. There are a couple locations in CA, but I have yet to visit. She gave me some Za’atar seasoning as a gift, which I’m really enjoying.

We’ve been getting citrus in our AHO boxes. I love citrus!!

Combine all three of these things in a Crock Pot, and there’s dinner. It was easy and delicious. I heated up some leftover Parmesan Risotto, made some Wilted Greens with Bacon, and we were ready to eat.
