Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2002
Nothing remarkable about this one for me. I might try it again and assemble everything in the crockpot liner well in advance, leaving it overnight in the refrigerator so the chicken can marinate. Easy to prepare, the chicken was tender, but just about all chicken prepared in the crockpot is tender due to the method.

Spicy Lentil Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2002
This recipe was ok for me, although I altered it a little. I had had a leftover lentil salad that didn't go over real well with my boyfriend, so this was a great way to do something with the leftovers (plus it took less than 10 minutes to make). The mixture was a little thick for my blender, so I dribbled in some chicken stock to thin it out a little. I also added more cumin than the recipe called for because I love cumin so much, and I added a bit more garlic. My girlfriends loved it and so did I. I also got rid of the leftover lentil salad without having to throw it out and waste it!

Pumpkin Rice with Apricots

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2002
I have to say the '20 min. prep time' is a little misleading due the amount of time needed to prepare the pumpkin, but I had an idea that would be the case when I started. I think it might have been closer to 40 minutes total, with preparing the onion and apricots too. I had no idea how much pumpkin I would need for the 6 cups diced, and bought too much just in case. It wound up that one small sugar pumpkin resulted in about 5 cups, which I felt was close enough. I altered the rice called for in the recipe to 2 cups uncooked so it would be a bit more mixed, and I prepared the rice in a chicken broth/white wine mix instead of water. I also substituted chicken broth for the water used to cook the pumpkin/apricots. I thought the pumpkin got a little too soft with the cooking (it wasn't holding it's shape when mixed with the rice) and I may have not paid close enough attention to the clock. I will watch closer next time and edit the time accordingly, if necessary. I liked this recipe very much and the first time made it for a ladies' get together I participate on a weekly basis. I'll be making it again tomorrow for dinner guests and again next week for an office potluck. The only major work involved is the pumpkin, but it was worth it in the end!
