Crock Pot Honey Mustard Chicken & Roasted PotatoesFebruary 25, 2013 at 7:57 pm | Posted in Chicken, Crock Pot, Potatoes, Side Dish, Supper, Uncategorized | Leave a comment
Tonight I fixed a meal that I found on Pinterest (big surprise!). The original recipe is from Kristen at Wicked Delicious and I can agree that this meal was wicked delicious!
Ingredients and directions for chicken:
One chicken (I picked up a small roaster)
1/3 cup Grey Poupon*
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup olive oil
OK: rinse and pat the chicken dry and place in crock pot. I wasn’t sure if the chicken would fit in my small crock pot (4 quart) but I tried and as you can see, it was too big:So, I grabbed my 6 quart crock pot. I wish I had a 5 quart crock pot, it would have fit better. The 6 quart crock pot was a little bit too big.
My butter was too cold so I zapped it in the microwave. Then it was too melty. For some reason I keep thinking of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as I type this….not sure why…
Add the mustard and honey and olive oil.Mix it all up! I love my whisk, can you tell?Pour over the chicken and cook on LOW for 8 hours. After 8 hours, remove from crock pot and place on serving dish; let sit for at least 5 minutes before slicing up. One of the chicken legs fell off in the crock pot, that’s how lovely and tender it cooked.
Ingredients and directions for roasted potatoes:
1 pound red potatoes*
1/2 yellow sweet onion
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F*I didn’t want to fix 3 pounds of potatoes, so I cut the recipe down to fit my family’s size. Dice up the potatoes and onions, toss them onto a 9×13 cookie sheet and drizzle with the olive oil, then salt and pepper to your heart’s content.Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Or if you’re lazy like me, just reach in with a pot holder and shake the cookie sheet. Serve with chicken. I toasted some Texas Toast, buttered it and sprinkled it with garlic salt and made some corn to go along with the meal.My teenager, who stayed home from school today with an unhappy tummy almost didn’t come to the supper table. We finally coaxed him to join us, he said he would eat a drumstick and proceeded to eat said drumstick plus quite a bit more chicken, along with potatoes, corn and Texas Toast. Hopefully that means he’s feeling better and will go to school tomorrow.
As you can see in the above picture, my onions were really beautifully dark and carmelized. They added an incredible flavor to the potatoes.
