Week 17: Braised Crock-Pot Chicken

The Recipe
3 chicken breast halves
0.5 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
1 clove chopped garlic
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1 bell peppers, sliced
3 spring onions, sliced
1 small onion, sliced in rings
4 tbsp cooking sherry
2 tsp orange juice
6 large green olives, chopped

Plug in your crockpot and turn it to low. Add the butter, chicken and all of the dried spices. Cut the peppers and onion, and chop or mince the garlic, to add to the mix. Top off with the cooking sherry and orange juice. Chop up the green olives, and sprinkle them on top.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

The Verdict
I'm still getting to know my crock-pot and unfortunately find it really difficult to find good recipes for it. Somehow they all end up tasting pretty bland. Unfortunately this was no real exception. It smelled delicious as it was cooking, but didn't really taste of anything. Plus the chicken was dry.

Moving on, I guess.
