Crockpot Cookin’: Lemon Pepper Chicken Thighs

Every Sunday I try to cook a big meal that will last me through a decent portion of the week. I’ve recently just started using my crockpot for Sunday meal prep, and I absolutely love it! Crockpot meals are perfect for when I’m low on time or when I just don’t feel like standing around in a kitchen all day. Today I was super busy with homework, church, and team stuff, and I just didn’t have the time to prepare dinner. So instead, I let my crockpot make dinner for me. I found this recipe online (lemon pepper chicken thighs) and thought I’d give it a try; it was amazing! All I had to do was mix a few ingredients with the chicken, add it to the crockpot, put the lid on, and walk away. In just 4 hours I had a perfectly cooked meal that required less than 15 minutes of prep. Below are some pictures of the process!

Here are pictures of the chicken before and after it was done cooking. I added a few lemon slices for fun. It was so easy putting this together. I mixed all of the ingredients right in the bottom of the pot, and once that was finished I added the chicken. After coating the chicken with the mixture, I set the crockpot to cook on high for 4 hours, and then I walked away. Easy!

In order to complete this meal I made brown rice and steamed asparagus. All in all this meal took about 4.5 hours, but I was only in the kitchen for 45 minutes! I will definitely make this again.

CARROTS

Everybody knows that eating carrots can help improve vision, but did you know that carrots can also help prevent cancer? Along with its cancer-fighting qualities, they have also been shown to slow down the aging process and promote healthier skin. Why do apples get all the glory? Sounds to me like a carrot a day keeps the doctor away!
