New recipe

I was on pinterest again last night and found a few more recipes I want to try. I have some that I have pinned that I have tried and I decided last night that I was going to make this honey sauced chicken recipe tonight. It turned out pretty good. Unfortunately my girls are picky eaters, especially Gracey. If it doesn't look good to her, she won't eat it.  But Brandon liked it and so did I. I think I will be making it again.

I did two things different with the recipe. I put my chicken in frozen, which by the way works like a charm! I have cooked frozen chicken in my crockpot once before and the chicken actually comes out pretty moist. It's so easy that way...especially if you are like me and forget to take your chicken out to thaw in time.

The second thing I did differently is I added some cornstarch to the sauce after I cut up the chicken and put it back in the sauce, to help thicken it up. Otherwise it will be really runny. I turned my crockpot on high after I put the cornstarch in because it was just about dinner time and I didn't want to wait all night for it thicken up. So, after I did that it still took a good 20 minutes at least to thicken up. You can always put the sauce in a pan over the stove and add the cornstarch and chicken to thicken it up that way and I believe it's faster to do it that way. I researched this a little bit ago. Would have been helpful earlier.


I really do love to make new recipes. The nice thing about making new recipes is figuring out what my girls will and will not eat. 

This is the picture of the honey sauced chicken from the actual site I found it from.
