i made chicken fricasse in the crock pot last night. it came out just ok.
i was lazy and didn't go outside to get fresh thyme from my herb garden, so i used dried thyme. it was way too powerful, even using less than the recipe called for. i tried to balance it out by adding some fresh sage and parsley (i finally went outside), but then it was just too herby overall. it smelled and tasted like i used way too much poultry seasoning.
oh well, to paraphrase forrest gump, lazy is as lazy does.
