Last night was night of fresh and easy. Fresh out of the garden corn, squash and zucchini. Easy, crock pot meal.
For the corn I boiled a pot of water and poured it over the corn in a stainless steel pot, covered it and let it sit. I read somewhere that this prevents over cooking. It works great, second time I've done it. Perfect corn!
For the squash and zucchini I used my Pampered Chef julianne peeler. It is old but still works great. So I julianned the vegetables and thinly sliced an onion. These were all thrown into a skillet with a tablespoon or so of grape-seed oil and fresh cracked pepper. Sauteed up and done, easy peasy.
Last the chicken, that was started hours before we ate.
Crock Pot Lemon Chicken
1 whole chicken cut up
1 package Italian dry dressing mix
2 TBSP butter
2 lemons, juiced
Place the butter in the bottom of the crock pot. Set your heat on high for 4-6 hours. Next place the chicken, sprinkle the seasoning on top and squirt the juice over the chicken. Place the lid on and let it set. Wonderful flavor and aroma!
How easy does it get?
