Yummy Brown Sugar Baked Chicken

3 to 4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken
1 .7 oz packet of Italian dressing mix
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

Preheat oven to 350. Rinse the chicken and lay on paper towels to drain the water off. Combine the packet of Italian seasoning mix with the brown sugar, mixing well. Grease a 9×13 baking dish.

Dip the chicken parts into the mixture, rolling around well to coat the entire piece well. Then place the chicken pieces into your prepared baking pan, with the top side of the chickenpart facing upwards. If you have any extra coating remaining, you can sprinkle itover the chicken pieces in the pan if you desire ( or not).

Bake time is 50 to 60 minutes, or until the chicken is done. While the chicken is baking, turn it every 15 minutes and spoon the drippings over the chicken each time, with the final turning leaving the chicken with the top side of the pieces facing up for the last few minutes of baking time.

Slow Cooker “Melt in Your Mouth” Pot Roast

Ingredients:

1 chuck roast (mine was 3 pounds)
Olive oil
1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 pounds potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 onion, peeled and cut into large chunks
2 stalks celery, cut into large chunks (optional)
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon corn starch

SEASONING MIX –

2 tablespoons steak seasoning (mine is store-bought and has a blend of peppercorns, garlic, paprika, parsley and salt)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried rosemary

Directions:

Combine together seasoning mix in a small bowl.  Set aside.

Coat both sides of meat with olive oil.  Sprinkle on a third of the seasoning mix onto each side.
Sear both sides of the meat in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Transfer roast to slow cooker.

Place the vegetables in a large bowl.  Drizzle on a little olive oil to coat vegetables.  Sprinkle on the remaining seasoning mix.  Add the vegetables to the same skillet that was used to sear the meat. Sauté for about five minutes – stirring occasionally.

Transfer the vegetables to the top of the roast in the slow cooker.  Pour in the beef broth. Cover with lid.
Cook on low for 9 hours or on high for 6 hours.

Using a turkey baster, retrieve most of the cooking juices from the slow cooker.  Transfer juices to a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat on the stovetop.  Whisk together the cornstarch with a little water.  Blend into the pan juices while whisking.  Bring back to a simmer until thickened.  Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.

Transfer the roast and vegetables to a large platter.  Ladle the gravy over.  Serve immediately.

Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing

Ingredients

1(10.5) ounce can of cream of chicken soup (or use cream of mushroom soup, it’s less salty)8 oz. sour cream1 (6 oz.) box stuffing mix* (Stove Top & Pepperidge Farm are a few of my favs)¾ cup water1 (16 oz.) bag frozen green beans3-4 large chicken breasts, salted and peppered if desired.

Instructions :

Place the chicken on the bottom of the crock pot.Mix together the soup, sour cream, stuffing, half of the water, and place over the chicken.Place the string beans either on one side of the crock pot or over the stuffing. You’ll want to mix the stuffing periodically if possible- I don’t mind mixing the string beans in with the stuffing but if you’d prefer that they remain separate, place the string beans more to the side.Add the remaining water during the cooking process as needed. I always use all of the water but crock pots cook slightly differently, so adding as needed is safer. If you’re leaving for the day, add the remaining water when you return if you feel you need it.Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-7*No need to cook the stuffing mix prior to adding to crock potNotesI like to try to mix the stuffing periodically if I can, just to keep it blended and to mix the moisture around. If the stuffing seems too moist for your liking, leave the lid off the crock pot for the last 30-40 minutes of cooking, or until your desired consistency is achieved.I love adding diced sausage, onions, and celery to my stuffing- even dried cranberries are delicious! You can also add onion tops toward the end of the cooking process- (YUM.)This meal is delicious with some whipped potatoes prepared on the stovetop!
