Easy Peasy Mexi Chicken

 

 

We all have those super busy days at work or home. Ya know the days where cooking dinner is not in the stars. These days also occur when you are sick in bed with the flu.

 

That was me last week. (This week I vow to be a new person!!) I knew that I did not have the energy to slave in front of the stove for even ten minutes.

 

Enter: The Crock Pot.

 

Easily one of the best inventions since sliced bread. You turn it on and forget about it for hours.

 

Even if this is you….

This recipe can be done SUCCESSFULLY!

 

So on my Monday of being sick, I threw in some chicken, liquid, and spices. The meat was ready about 7 hours later. It was moist and full of flavor. Not to mention, this is PALEO, LOW CARB, and HEALTHY!
