GB - can't wait to hear how your dinner went - I am sure you had a nice time.
Jkath - how did the scampi turn out - did you do rice or angel hair - like I said, I am making it this week, I think I may be angel hair - what's your favorite?
Buckytom and Jap1148 - sticky chicken is a dish I make in the crock pot. I actually made it years ago but someone brought it up here somewhere recently, and it jogged my memory. The recipe is as follows - and I apologize if I should not be posting it here, someone let me know if this is a booboo:
4 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp thyme
1 t sp white pepper
1/2 ts garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 large roasting chicken
1 c chopped onions
Combine all spices. Rub the spice mixture all over the chicken, inside and out(of course, first take off your rings (heehee
) and clean it and take giblets out first). Please in reseable bag and refrigerate over night. Put chicken in crockpot with no liquid. Cook on low 8 hours. This will be make its own juices and be very tender!
Now guys, I used a huge purdue stuffer (almost 8 lbs - hated putting that beautiful bird in the crock but I needed a big one). Anyways, This bird had its own temp and this thing was done in 5 hours - which is what has been happening alot to me with this crock pot - I hardly ever cook anything for 8 hrs anymore - even though most crock recipes calls for that. I made a gravy with some of the pan juices, but it really isn't needed. Oh, and another tip, if you don't care what the bird looks like, I usually cook my birds breast side down so all the juices run into the white meat - very tasty.
