  • 4T Olive Oil
  • 1-2 Tomatoes
  • Chopped fresh Basil
  • 3 Chunks of Mozzarella Per Bread
  • Pizza or Tomato Sauce (I used Tomato)

Directions

  1. Coat each Naan or Pita bread with 1T olive oil
  2. Spread desired amount of Pizza or Tomato Sauce on Naan
  3. Place Chunks of Mozzarella on bread
  4. Place slices of tomatoes on Bread
  5. Sprinkle with fresh Basil

Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes

Crockpot Whole Chicken

I love cooking a whole chicken but making it in the oven takes hours and in the summer months that hot oven is a killer for your home. Crock-pot Whole Chicken takes little effort and the left overs are perfect for a meal the next day such as; enchiladas, chicken tacos, BBQ Chicken Pizza (see previous post) etc. I also threw in some potatoes to make this a meal in itself.

Ingredients:

  • Whole Chicken
  • 3 T Oil
  • 1T Parsley
  • 2T Garlic Salt
  • Sprinkle with any seasoning (I used Pappy’s)
  • 3T butter
  • 3-4 Potatoes (I used Red and Sweet)

Directions

  1. Place 3 -4 balls of foil on the bottom of the crock pot
  2. Remove gizzards out of the chicken
  3. Rub the chicken with Oil (I sued Avocado)
  4. Place chunks of butter under chicken skin
  5. Sprinkle seasoning
  6. Place chicken on top of the foil balls in the crockpot

For the Potatoes

  1. Poke several holes in each potatoe
  2. Individually wrap potatoes in foil
  3. Place on top of chicken in the Crockpot

Cook of low for 10 hours

I tried to get a after picture however, when I took out the chicken I was careless and it was too much of a disaster for a picture!
