Emeril's Chicken in a Pot & A Giveaway...Post #7

I'm not a huge fan of crock-pots; no particular reason...just not.  So when I come across a crock-pot recipe I want to try I will usually find another method for cooking it. Which is exactly what I did with the Chicken in the Pot recipe from Emeril's new cookbook Sizzling Skillets and Other One Pot Wonders.




This is the final week of my 3 week adventure as part of the One Pot Blogger Cooking Party for Emeril and we're going to end this week with a bang or should I say Bam!  I have a cool giveaway for you (see below)  and one last yummy recipe to share.

Ok,  back to Chicken in a Pot. The original recipe calls for cooking a whole chicken in a crock-pot for about 4 hours. I decided to use chicken leg quarters and  cook them on the stove for about 2 hours in a dutch oven. 

The results were amazing.  Just a 1/2 cup of white wine was all that was used to yield a rich flavored broth that smothered the chicken and vegetables.  Speaking of veggies; I added extra carrots and celery and purple fingerling potatoes.  I also omitted the onion and used chopped leeks instead.  This recipe makes a delicious hearty chicken stew; perfect for a crowd.

Enough about chicken...let's talk giveaway.  As part of this Blogger Party I've been given a set of  Emeril by Zak 7 piece flame bowls to share with one of my readers.  These unique bowls are perfect to use when entertaining guests.  They make a wonderful show piece.

    I am so hungry now that I saw the chicken recipe, I may try to make it without waiting for the cookbook. I love the red serving dishes, just in time for the holidays or really any Arizona dinner.
