Fiesta Chicken

Until I take Fifth Harmony's advice and Work from Home. I will forever share the Crock Pot love. (Actually, I'd probably use it then, too!)  The first time I left it on, I was sure I was going to come home to a burning building with my angry neighbors explaining how the fire started in our loft.

Thankfully, that did not happen. Now, after the initiation period, I am fully confident leaving it on all day!

My favorite thing to make is easy Fiesta Chicken. Named so, because it smells like a fiesta when I come home from work. I started with a basic chicken + seasoning recipe but each time I make it, it comes out with new ingredients depending on what I have available.

Pictured here: packed and ready for work lunch! The possibilities are endless!
