For my crock pot meal this week….

This recipe is from my mom’s friend, Mike. The man is an amazing chef.  I can’t believe I’ve never posted it before. If you want to serve food that tastes like it came from a restaurant but don’t have time to fix it–let the crock pot get your back on this one!! You’ll be glad you did.

I served mine over brown rice mixed with black-eye peas. (For good measure.)

I almost burnt dinner. I almost cooked it to dinner death. I’d never made cacciatore before. It sounded very Italian and very difficult, but when I looked at the ingredients, I had everything but the chicken breasts and a few canned items. Well, hey! I can do this! I didn’t anticipate getting locked out of the house and overcooking the chicken. But I’ll let you read that in the end results.

Michelle and I posted this on our Cook Me A Story page a while back. It was the first thing I ever showed her how to cook in the slow cooker and the one that hooked her.

Great for back yard barbeques/potlucks! Kids LOVE it, and it’s fun for them to make because teaspoons fit perfectly in little hands. My niece made it last time she was visiting. Matt looked at me and said, “Mmmm, this is good Jennifer!” My niece piped in, “I made it!” 🙂

In celebration of summer and weekend get-togethers, I thought I’d post it on this site too. It’s my Matthew’s fav-o-rite crock pot meal as well as my little niece.

End result of yumminess.

Years ago, as a missile field cook, a military cop made a request for chicken cordon bleu. He explained it was easy to make on the grill, but could have been speaking Greek for all I knew. I tried to follow his directions and when I delivered it on the plate, he smiled. It wasn’t perfect, but it made the cops happy when we tried to accommodate their requests.

Roll them up, secure with a toothpick.
