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.
