Chicken and Sweet Potato Yummyness

Oh my, this is our new favorite recipe!  I realized how much I loved it when I was jealous of Mr. Steady taking the leftovers to work the next day.  It is comfort food, with out the heaviness, flavor so rich you anticipate the next bite, over all delicious... so I had to share!  And it is a crock-pot meal, doesn't get any better in my book : )

What you need:
2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
3 chicken breasts, cut in half
1 tsp salt
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of pepper
dash of garlic powder
dash of curry powder
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 tsp. of orange zest (grated orange rind)
2 tsp. brown sugar

What to do:
1. Place sweet potatoes in bottom of  crock-pot
2. Place chicken on the sweet potatoes
3. In a separate bowl mix all remaining ingredients together.  Pour over the top of the chicken.
4. Cover.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
5.  Serve over rice or rice noodles.

Enjoy!!  I would love to know if you try this recipe... and if you do, if you like it as much as we all do!


B even had some for his dinner...
 (For those of you that don't have a baby, don't let this picture of ground-up food ruin your appetite)
* on a side note: We are loving the food mill... It makes dinner time so much easier for B.  He really enjoys the more flavor-full regular meals over plain veggies and fruit.
** Yes, those are Mr. Steady's manly hands in the 1st picture!  What a guy, helping me prep dinner!
