Pinterest .....My Virtual Cork Board
Lately I have really been getting into this thing called Pinterest...have you heard of it. :) Well, I myself am loving it! If you haven't tried it yet I encourage you to check it out.
What is Pinterest? Well, I would say it's a virtual way of expressing yourself. I remember in Jr. High I had an entire wall in my room done in cork board, (ah, the 80's) I loved it. I was able to pin anything I wanted to share, see keep, whatever. Think of it that way. A giant cork board, but everyone can see it AND you can share and organize all your beautiful treasures with others.
While pinning on Pinterest I have come across so many wonderfully, delicious sounding recipes. I finally decided to actually try a few. I thought it would be in my best interest plus my fellow pinners to hear the outcome of these recipes. Where they as good as others say? Where they really that easy to make?
I made was Crockpot Italian Chicken. It was so yummy. My family could not get enough. It was super easy, there were less than 5 ingredients plus you just let the crockpot do the cooking. Love it!! Here is the recipe:
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1-2 cans cream of chicken soup (depending how cream cheesy you want it)
Place the chicken in a crockpot and sprinkle Italian dressing over it. Combine cream cheese and cream of chicken soup in a small pot over low heat and pour over chicken. Cook on low in the crockpot for at least 4 hours. You can leave it in there all day. Once chicken is done you can leave the chicken breasts whole, cube it, or even shred it. I always cut the breasts into tenderloin size strips. Once you have cut up the chicken, throw it back in the crockpot and stir into the sauce.
If you feel the sauce is too thick you can thin it to your preferred consistency with a little milk. Serve over pasta or rice.
I hope you family enjoys it as much as mine did. My young daughter had seconds and she was super excited to eat it again for leftovers. It doesn't get much better than that!
