Food again

OK, so I have turned into a slow cooker junkie! I love it. I usually put dinner in the slow cooker around 2 o'clock, and then my evenings aren't nearly as stressful. Afternoons around 4 o'clockish I start to go nuts. Add baths and dinner...I am worn smooth out! Anyway, I am so excited that my friend Becky is letting me borrow this book. I love it! It has great recipes, and all made in the slow cooker. The one I am going to share today is

Parmesan chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup of water
1 cup of fat free mayonnaise
1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp. paprika
fresh cracked pepper

Put chicken in slow cooker. Mix remainder of ingredients and cook for 3-4 hours on high.

This is my version of the one in the book, I changed it up a bit.

I served the chicken with whole wheat pasta and broccoli. We skipped eating the sauce because the chicken was so tender! Gary is loving the slow cooker foods because I am trying new things. It is so fun. I'm gonna look for a good slow cooker oatmeal recipe. Can you imagine waking up that that yummy smell? HC and I would be the only ones to eat it though...the other 2 aren't oatmeal eaters. Have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!
