{slow cooker} island chicken

islandchickendsc_0017

Here’s a great little dish to throw in the slow cooker before you run out the door in the morning. Because of the addition of quick cooking tapioca, the sauce gets thick and a little sticky as it simmers away all day. I put in a jar of my favorite Trader Joe’s Island Salsa, and…

It was so ridiculously easy to prepare and SO delicious. If you can’t find the Lemon Cream Oreos, never fear, simply use the…

Some of our other favorites include: Spicy Peanut Butter & Jelly Wings, Sticky Sweet Chinese Appetizer Wings, Saigon Chicken Wings + Sesame Wasabi Dipping Sauce, and Thai Honey Chile Drummies. They’re all good. Try not to lick your computer screen.…
