The crockpot is out because the oven is broken!  This was a super easy prep, maybe 15 minutes max, and is DE-LISH!

Crockpot Chicken in Wine Sauce

1 large onion sliced
3 medium tomatoes diced
4 cloves garlic minced
6 chicken thighs, bone in
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flake
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup cold water
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp minced chives

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, red pepper flake and garlic powder on the skin side (although you can remove the skin if you want to eliminate some fat/calories).

Heat the oil over medium high in a frying pan, and place chicken in skin side down. The goal of this step is to get get a nice crust on the skin (not cook it!). This should only take about 5 minutes.

While the chicken is browning, add onion, tomato, garlic and white wine to the crockpot, and give it a stir. Arrange browned chicken on the onions/tomatoes, and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6.

After it’s cooked, gently remove the chicken from the crockpot, and place on a serving platter. Be careful! The meat will be falling off the bone! Add the cornstarch to the cold water, mix, and add to the juices in the crockpot to thicken. Pour the thickened sauce over the chicken.

Serve with rice or noodles for the family, and over broccoli to keep it low carb – garnish with minced chives. The cornstarch can be omitted…the juices are delicious without being thickened.

Fencing Junior Olympics, Portland OR.

The kiddo qualified for foil and epee Junior Olympics, and what a tremendous coincidence that they were held locally here in Portland, Oregon this year.   This is one of my favorite pics from the weekend.  She had broken her arm snowboarding a few weeks earlier, and we were SO happy her doctor cleared her to participate.

Having that crave for pizza, but want to avoid the crust?  Stifle that urge to order out!  Prep time was about 10 minutes, cook time about 15.  I served it as a side with my Roasted Chicken Thighs

Zucchini Pizza Casserole

5 zucchini squash, diced large
1 lb mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, diced
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 15 oz can large olives
1 jar (14 oz) pizza sauce
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded

Add squash to 9×13 inch pan.  Sautee onions and mushrooms in olive oil, and add to pan. Rather than slicing the olives I just chunk them with my fingers to break them up directly into the pan.  You can buy pre sliced (I find them too expensive).

Mix all the veggies, and add the entire jar of pizza sauce, stir to mix.  Layer cheese over the top.

Cook uncovered at 375 F for 10-12 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.  I cooked mine for 15 minutes which overdid the cheese a bit, but it still tasted absolutely delicious.
