2 great recipes that I actually followed to the letter. I cooked the chili on high for about 6.5 hours and it was fine. For the cornbread, I should have done a smaller chop on the broccoli, some of the pieces are rather large in the finished cornbread.
Use these recipes to feed a crowd or feed 2 people for multiple days. I highly recommend a drizzle of honey on the cornbread.
buffalo chicken stuffed sweet spud
When I want a baked sweet potato on weeknights I make these “15 minute baked sweet potatoes” in the microwave then broiler.
For this entree I also made my basic crock pot chicken with a kick:
- 4 frozen chicken breasts
- on low in slow cooker while we’re at work (about 10 hours)
- remove meat from slow cooker, shred and toss with wing/hot sauce of choice. this time I finished off a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s buffalo wing sauce/glaze and tossed in a little Frank’s Red Hot. Is that bad? Because it tasted so good.
We topped everything off with a dollop of sour cream (can also use greek yogurt or my homemade greek yogurt ranch)
This time around I baked one sweet potato for Joe and I to each have half. The remainder of the chicken was used for buffalo chicken wraps throughout the week.
two tines because the cheese sauce never really became a sauce. Admittedly, this may be user error. I followed the recipe and made a double batch because who wants half a bag of pasta laying around?
My 2 main mistakes:
- not using my bigger pasta pot to cook the pasta and then stir everything together.
- adding 1 cup of pasta water instead of the called for 1/4 cup
Joe and I stirred like crazy and ended up moving everything to a sided sauté pan which was bigger, non stick and better for stirring. The cheese and pasta weren’t talking to each other and it was a very annoying experience for 2 hard working and hungry individuals mid-week. But we ate it and it was fine because its still bacon mac n cheese even if it is high maintenance. And there were leftovers because of the double batch. So we’re still eating it.
