Got out my slow cooker for some warm and hearty dinner recipes.
I love when my food cooks while I am busy doing other fun things.
While I was creating this slow cooker chicken dish I am about to share with you, my son, Brennan asked why I don’t usually follow recipes. I really didn’t have a good response except that I have ‘never been much of a rule follower.’ Just my nature. My husband, Russ on the other hand, is the BIGGEST rule follower I know. 🙂
Funny how that works, right? Perhaps we balance each other out? 🙂
I did add about 1/4 tsp. chipotle chili powder and about 2 TB of lime juice to the mix and cooked in my slow cooker for about 3 hours.
When the chicken was all cooked and almost ready to serve. Brennan thought we should add a bit of cheese on top.
Recipes should always be open to last minute improvising.
Great idea! Cheese-y shredded chicken infused with lots of yummy flavors.
Are you a rule follower my nature?
