Friday Night Fancy
Jun. 3, 2011 5:40 pm
Well most of the family was gone tonight but Jared(the youngest son) had his friend Lincoln over. So 3 of us ate. I tried a new slow cooker recipe tonight that keeps the house from getting too hot in the summer and makes for a quick to put together meal.
It was called Orange Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta. Recipe will follow. I'd call this a very kid friendly recipe. But you can't be gone all day like most slow cooker recipes since this one doesn't take a full 8 hours. Since their was only 1 piece of chicken
left, I'd say it's a keeper. Since there is now a Butter Chocolate Cake in the oven now, guess it didn't make since to try and keep the house cool. LOL
Orange Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta from Family Circle Mag
2/3 cup sweet and sour sauce
1/3 cup orange juice
2 TBSP quick tapioca
3 pounds chicken pieces, skin removed
1/4 TSP salt
1/2 pound angel hair
In slow cooker, mix sauce, juice and tapioca. Add chicken and toss around. Cover and cook on HIGH 3 hours or LOW 5 hours. Remove chicken. Stir salt into sauce. Meanwhile prepare angel hair. Drain, return to pot and toss with 1/2 cup sauce. Serve with chicken
and remaining sauce.
