Crock-Pot Chicken Thighs and Roasted Potatoes

Don't you love it when dinner just works! I guess the stars are aligned or some such thing. Whatever the case we had one great meal tonight.
I am always looking for crock-pot recipes that use less process, canned food. This recipe was really too simple. Place frozen boneless, skinless thighs in the crock-pot. Cover with Sweet Baby Rays Original Sauce. Yes, this is somewhat processed-but quick. Homemade barbecue sauce could be used. Cover and cook on high about 3 hours or until done. Remove chicken to plate, cover with foil. The liquid was much to runny for my likes. I strained the liquid thru a fine mesh strainer and removed the fat. I then reduced the liquid to the desired thickness. I returned sauce and chicken thighs back to the crock-pot for a final warm up.
Thanks Jill for sharing! Dad loved it.


The Roasted Potatoes were just that. Nothing fancy here. I had  6 small red potatoes that needed an assignment. I peeled them, sprinkled a little EVOO and added a few seasonings, current favorite is Peppercorn/Garlic Rub from Pampered Chef. I also like Lawry's Seasoning and Smoky Paprika. I sliced the potatoes with Pampered Chefs Crinkle Cutter, I do love cute food! These veggies cooked at 475 for about 10-15 minutes on each side. They were very tasty! Steamed spinach rounded out the meal.. I'm calling this a 30 minute meal, because it's my blog and I can do that. I guess I should say this is a 30 minute (hands on) meal.

This looks scrumptious! Never had Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, but I am intrigued.

Hi Cindy, Got your lovely comment over on my blog. It shows you as a "no reply", so I'll answer here.
When I started watching Lark Rise, I actually thought of you. You will LOVE it! It's family oriented has a lot of wise advice. Plus, it will make you laugh. I found the DVD's at my local library. Not sure if you can get them in your area or not. I know they are available on Amazon.
