In yesterday's post I shared with you that I was going to make chicken soup in my crockpot.
And, I did.
But, guess what? It was inedible!
The chicken was rubbery and the broth virtually tasteless.
The dog is going to be a very happy puppy this week since I diced up the chicken and added it to the rice treat I made her yesterday! LOL
The rest of the "soup" sadly went down the drain.
Am I the only person in the world that has trouble with the crockpot?
It seems like it would be so easy. Put a bunch of stuff in, turn the sucker on, and have deliciousness waiting for you at dinner....
Yeah not so much for me!
I have a very small list of things I can make rather successfully in it....
That's it! FOUR THINGS!
I follow the instructions.
I make sure not to over or under fill the crock.
My crockpot is even "dummy proof" and will switch itself off to warm when the cooking time is up.
Why can I cook on the stove and in the oven but not in the easiest appliance ever?!?!
Does anyone have any tips/tricks that can help?
Does anyone else share in my absolute inability to master something so simple?
P.S. My family didn't starve last night as I had the ingredients on hand to whip up baked ziti with bread. LOL
