welcome to the very first edition of ROCK OUT with you CROCK OUT!!
this is my homage to my most favorite kitchen gadget ever – the blessed crock pot.
because even i can crock pot like a mofo!
i mean who can’t really??
and all of the recipes featured here will be healthy and/or weight watcher recipes – this is a weight loss blog after all.
so here it goes…
i got this amazing recipe from a great blog mel gets fit i found recently – actually this recipe was her very first post i ever read and along with this kickass recipe she claimed, and i quote…
“this is, by far, one of my all-time favorite crockpot recipes. i know it sounds like an odd combination of ingredients, but it really is tasty, promise.”
i was sold and here is my version of mel’s cranberry crockpot chicken. (links take ya right to her blog – do check her out and give her some due love)

1 cup kraft fat free catalina dressing
1 packet dry onion soup mix

okay i am just gonna get to the point – this recipe is über delish.
savory and sweet and the chicken is so tender -- hence why it looks a little wonky in the final pic i took.
but the best part – it is beyond easy.
there is nothing to chop or prep. if you can open a box and operate a can opener you are officially a crockpottin’ pro with this recipe.
and folks seriously – this is how all crockpot recipes should be. the whole premise is to plop it in, set the temp, go off without a care in the world, and come back to food fit for the gods.
this recipe totally delivers that and we are but mere mortals.
i loved it
brian loved it
and my two teenage sons loved it
our two year old daughter would rather eat dirt -- okay not true; she wouldn't eat this or dirt.
despite the picky eating habits of a toddler -- this meal was a success!
easy, delish, and a healthy option -- win/win/win!
and there ya have it...
eat your veggies and love yourself!
pssssst... gotta a killer recipe ya wanna share -- spill it or we can definitely link up somehow! thanks!
