I need to go exercise but what’s for dinner?

Posted on: October 29, 2010

I am busy (see my workout schedule below). You are busy. You have a family -“mom what’s for dinner?”. You need to eat AND you need to exercise. I will be sharing some of the great recipes I have found that have allowed me to do both. Check back here for more recipes. Try them out and let me know what you think.

Cha Cha’s tip: you can serve this with rice, smashed or mashed cauliflower if you want low carb, or with pasta. YUMMY!

    12 boneless skinless chicken thighs or 6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup lemon-lime soda
    2/3 cup white or white wine vinegar
    3 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
    2 T soy sauce
    1 tsp ground black pepper

Use a 5-6 quart crockpot for this recipe.

Plop the chicken into your crockpot. Cover with the brown sugar, pepper, chopped garlic, and soy sauce. Add the vinegar, and pour in the soda. It will bubble!

Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours, or on high for 4-5. The chicken is done when it is cooked through and has reached desired consistency. The longer you cook it, the more tender it will be.

Serve over a bowl of white rice with a ladle full of the broth.

The Verdict.

Seriously. Go to the store. This is what’s for dinner.

Number of Servings: 6
