Yes, Healthy Rotisserie Chicken in a Crockpot!

Healthy Rotisserie Chicken in a Crockpot! Our experiment putting a whole chicken in the crockpot was a success! Now, it may not technically be rotisserie chicken but it was very, very close!  The meat fell off the bones and was tender and moist. It was delicious! If you remember from the recipe, Healthy Rotisserie Chicken in a Crockpot, I didn’t add any water to the crockpot.  I just rubbed in spices all over and added a few veggies inside. The chicken produced its own juices! After we picked off most of the meat I saved the carcass for soup.  (I’ll post that recipe soon.) If you haven’t tried this, I wholeheartedly recommend cooking your next chicken in the crockpot for a healthy rotisserie chicken!

GF SF DF CF Stuffed Peppers

Gluten Free Soy Free Dairy Free Corn Free Stuffed Pepper Recipe One of my readers submitted this recipe.  Thanks Vanessa! Hey everyone, Here’s another recipe that you might like to try. It’s a bit more involved, but if you do your prep work, it’s not too bad. Stuffed Peppers Ingredients: 1 lb lean ground turkey 1 cup uncooked brown rice 6 bell peppers 1/2 cup onion 1/2 cup mushroom 2 scallions 2 cloves garlic 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper olive oil Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2.  In a pot, make brown rice according to directions. Meanwhile in a pan, add olive oil and brown the ground turkey. Season with the salt and pepper. 3. Chop the onion, garlic, scallions and mushrooms. Set aside. 4. When rice is done, drain and pour into a large bowl. Add the browned turkey. 5. Put the chopped onion, garlic, scallions and mushrooms into the pan to cook down for 4-5 minutes, stirring occassionally. 6. Mix the vegetables into the bowl with the rice and turley. Mix together well. 7. Remove the top and membranes of the peppers. Arrange on a baking pan, and spoon the rice/turkey mix into each pepper. 8. Put the pan into the oven, cook for 1 hour or until peppers are tender. If you have tomato sauce that we can eat, spoon it over the tops of the peppers before cooking. If you have the time before hand, you can use my sauce recipe: Ingredients: 5 Medium Tomatoes (about the size of baseballs) 1 clove fresh garlic 1/4 cup of chopped white onion 2 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp salt pepper to taste several leaves of chopped fresh basil  Directions: 1. Chop garlic and onions into small pieces. In a large pot, pour in the olive oil and over low heat, add the garlic and onions. Leave uncovered 2. While step 1 is starting to cook down, you can start to peel the skins off of the tomatoes. ( I researched a fast and really easy way to do it.) Use a knife to remove the stem and cut a shallow X boil a small pot of water, using a slotted spoon, drop a tomato into the boiling water for about 15-20 seconds then drop tomato into a bowl of ice water. When the tomato cools, the skin peels off easily. 3. Crush the tomatoes. I couldn’t find anything less messy that worked as well as me smushing them with my hands. 4. Add the tomatoes to the pot with garlic and onions. 5. Season sauce with the basil, salt and pepper. 6. Cover pot with a lid and let simmer on low heat for 2-3 hours. NOTE: Thanks to Michaelaw for the lovely photo!
