My family has gotten into a rut. We have gotten very busy and have become a bit lazy when it comes to dinnertime. Cooking meals and preparing for them is difficult at the end of the day. I decided it was time to start looking ahead. I have been looking and finding things that my family will eat. My children are somewhat picky. I am likely the one to blame for this, but it is what it is and we have to work with it. Luckily for me, my children have decided that chicken is good. They have their usual ways that they like it the most, but are usually up to trying it in new ways. This started us on a path of new ways to cook chicken. This gives us a better chance at everyone liking it.
As a working mom, I love being able to come home and have dinner waiting for us to eat it. Really, even if just part of it is ready that’s a step up from our usual routine of come home and cook all of dinner. This is where the slow cooker comes in. It is by far one of the most under used tools in my kitchen, but one of the best for our busy lifestyle. Hopefully, we will start using it more again as we find new things to cook in it that everyone will eat.
This honey mustard chicken is probably one of the simplest and easiest recipes I have posted, but it was also a big hit at our house. As it is the base protein for the meal it pairs well with many things. So, we chose to pair it with Oven Fried Potatoes – a favorite at our house – and some steamed fresh vegetables.
