Recipe Exchange~Favorite Main Dish

Tales from the Scales is hosting a recipe exchange today. Ooooh, when I typed the word hosting I started thinking about Hostess products such as HoHos, Ding Dongs and Spice Cakes.......... yummers! I love salty and sweet things together, don't you? On road trips my SIL and I had to have a box of Ding Dongs and a can of Pringles. We would take a bite of the chocolate and then stuff a Pringle in our mouth. Slurp! In all honesty I know that if you put that in front of me this morning I would not eat it. To me that's good to know. Some old bad habits are no long desired. Yayness!

Around our home we love, love, love chicken! We buy truckloads of frozen chicken breasts so we never run out. We eat it practically every night, but after awhile our beloved chicken starts tasting the same. My creative hubby was in Kroger one day and bought several different marinades like lemon pepper, teriyaki, santa fe, caribbean jerk, bbq, you name it they got it!

He put about six chicken breast in the crockpot, added one bottle of marinade and cooked it on high for one hour and then low for another three to four hours. The chicken is ever so tender and tastes ever so good! We usually serve it over brown rice along with a couple of veggies.

With all the different flavors out there we found it just adds a little ZING and ZEST to our foul friend. Of course you can marinade just about any kind of meat you want, but this is our preference. Enjoy!

Mmm, that sounds good! We're big chicken fans around here, too. (Which I guess is better than being big chickens! ;)) I like to marinate mine in a concoction of my own making and then grill it on my George Foreman grill. Very tasty!

Although now you have me thinking about Pringles...

Being a busy mom, teacher, coach etc, I too have discovered the ease of marinade, chicken and the crockpot or grill.
Go hubby on the nice find!!! :)

We eat tons of chicken too! I've done that in the crockpot with a bottle of BBQ sauce, but not the bottled marinades. I use those a lot to marinate b/s chicken breasts before we throw them on the grill. I'm so lucky to have married a guy who likes chicken, we eat it a lot!
