Do As I Say...Unless I Change My Mind.

It's happened before.
My vodka pasta, for example. Before I made up this recipe, I used the jarred vodka sauce. Mistake! And I admitted it here.

This time, it's my chicken salad recipe. I'm not changing much, just the beginning. Everything is the same, except instead of boiling the crock-pot it the night before.

Here's what I did:

6 chicken breast tenders
1/4 cup water
freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
a few red pepper flakes
a tablespoon of the hidden valley ranch packet

I combined all those ingredients and turned the crockpot on low for 10 hours (or overnight will work if you don't have the "smart pot" that mine claims to be)

After that, everything is the same. The color of the chicken salad WILL darken because of the way the chicken is prepared, but I'm telling you, it's good. Anthony tried it for the first time tonight and *really* liked it which kind of surprised me to be honest. So yay for that :)

i had a crock pot, but when a friend found out it wasn't programable she got me another as a wedding gift.

i assume that's what yours means by "smart" it knows (when you tell it of course) when to kick off.

Definitely going to do it this way. I get rave reviews anytime I make your chicken salad ~ which is often!!! Telling me I can do it in a crock pot makes me one happy lady!!!
