Thanks to my friend, Courtney, and her experiment with crock-potting recently, I decided to try something in the slow cooker yesterday... Plus chicken thighs were on sale at Hannaford so...
I amazed me (again) how much liquid comes out of stuff in the crock pot. Also amazing is the fact that you can add a grain to the liquidyness towards the end of cooking and it will soak it all up and create a delicious full meal.
Quinoa Tomato Chicken in the Crock pot (adapted from Courtney's recipe...)
8 Chicken (boneless skinless) thighs straight from freezer to pot
1 can drained artichoke hearts
1 can drained rinsed white beans
2 small can diced tomato (or 1 big 28 oz can)
1/3 cup marinara sauce
2 c chicken stock or boullion
splash of white wine
1 hour left to cooking... add 1 + 1/4 c of quinoa
