Had to come tell you....

I just made THE best meal I've had in a long time....I found this recipe this morning and decided to try it at 3 this afternoon. It is so simple. I'm posting the recipe below, but, let me tell you, it did not say anything about vegetables in it. I went ahead and cut up in thin slices 5 carrots, a red pepper, a green pepper and a bit of onion. This is called: CRockpot Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken......it's kind of like a sweet and sour Chinese meal - - - it was better tho than any I've had around here - - the sauce is spicy and tangy - - not that sick-o sweet taste. Served it over rice....now, I need help in the making rice category, but that's another story...the chicken/veg/juice part was incredible!!

It took 3 hours in my huge crock pot...I chopped up the chicken about halfway thru, and in the end, , I TRIED to thicken the broth a bit with corn starch, but, My cornstarch is probably so dead, it didn't really work.....but I will get some fresh for the next time I try this....actually, you would not have to thicken it at all, I was just feeling adventurous!(lol) Oh, and if you like water chestnuts, they would be great in this.


PS - - I had to come back in here to say that a Cheesecake would be delicious for dessert after this - - I didn't make one, but it would sure be good!(lol)

I can't name a meal that a cheesecake wouldn't be a good dessert for ;-)
