This was delicious last Sunday night!

Here's a bonus "recipe" for you to try too! I got this from my sister, Cheri.

Chicken in the Crock Pot

Take a whole chicken and put in a crockpot. Fill it up 1/2 way with water. Add about 5-6 chicken bouillon cubes. Turn it on low. I usually put this on before I go to bed on Saturday night. It is ready for a noontime meal on Sunday. I take all the chicken off the bones and serve it. It is extremely tender and juicy chicken. It's got great broth to make gravy with. This is one of my daughters favorite meals - Chicken in the crockpot with mashed potatoes and gravy, and some sort of vegetables!

I'm excited about the dessert recipe----since we have no oven here in Japan.

We are big chicken eaters too, so that's a recipe we'll try for sure!

Thanks Terri!
