Traditional Chicken Marsala made simple in the slow cooker!
I can’t think of an easier meal than one made in the crock pot. Whether you have children or not the slow cooker is a Godsend in my opinion!
When you have the right recipe with the perfect amount of liquids and ingredients you can make some magic in the crock pot!
But it must all begin with the perfect recipe.
Have you had high hopes of a fabulous dinner waiting for you when you get home from work only to discover the food is dry and unappetizing?
I’ve had that happen one too many times so I’ve become an expert in what it takes to make a recipe work well in the crock pot and as always I would never share it if it wasn’t a picky family approved winner!
Making sure you have enough liquids is the key. Whether it be wine like in this recipe or water or broth, if you don’t have enough you are in trouble my friend.
With all my crock pot recipes you can be certain they will be amazing.
Just make sure that the crock pot is not only turned to the correct setting, but is PLUGGED in! I’ve had that happen and it is very, very sad! Came home to what I thought would be fabulous smells of pork tenderloin cooking in my crock pot only to discover I never plugged it in, all day. Salvageable, nope. Complete defeat to say the least.
I’ve got a few delicious winners in my New Cookbook, like Crock Pot Barbecue Pulled Pork, Crock Pot Shredded Chicken Fajitas, and Lightened Up Chicken Herb Stroganoff!
