It has been a less than stellar week around here due to the fact that we have a teething baby on our hands. Yikes. I forgot how miserable it can be. Rachel's not having very much fun either.
I am currently working on the following projects– gallery wall in the upstairs hall, DIY counter re-finishing in the laundry room, St. Patrick's day printables, entry way springification, mantel decorating, and cute hair clip tutorial.
I have been unable to actually complete any of them. What I have been able to do is hold a sad baby. . . and watch a lot of HGTV. Which means I have found even more projects to add to my list. I'm thinking I need my family to move out of the house for a year so I can complete all of my projects UN-interuppted. Totally kidding. Although I would not complain if they took a little mini vacation for a day or two without me. Maybe I'll have to request that for my birthday this year.
totally frazzled busy mom knows, weeks like this are perfect for crock pot meals. Just throw a few things together and in a few hours you have an awesome meal ready. Gotta love that!
This chicken actually came together because I was trying to make a recipe for honey glazed chicken but realized I was short on honey. So I just threw a bunch of stuff together and hoped it would be good. Thankfully it was. Really good actually. My family loved it. The red pepper flakes add a nice contrast to the sweetness of the sauce. If you like things spicy, feel free to add more.
Glazed Crock Pot Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup soy sauce
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
Sprinkle both sides of chicken breasts with pepper and place in a crock pot. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over chicken. Cook at LOW for 3-4 hours or till chicken is done. (Mine was done in 3 1/2 hours.) Serve over rice.
