Set the Table 2017 | Week 49

It's time for a 2-for-one deal.

Night 1
Crockpot Cherry Chipotle Chicken

5-8 Organic chicken thighs and/or breasts
1 cup stock (vege or chicken. I used Better than Boullion Organic Chicken Base)
1 jar Holcomb Hollow Cherry Chipotle Jam
1 bunch fresh sage (stems and leaves intact)
sea salt and pepper

Place all ingredients into a crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 4 hours. Reserve juices and refrigerate. 

Night 2
Organic Cheese and Spinach Ravioli in a Cherry Chipotle broth

Leftover Cherry Chipolte broth
1 heaping tablespoon of Marscapone cheese
Parmesan cheese

In a medium saucepan, heat up leftover broth to a simmer. Add marscapone cheese and slowly mix into broth until dissolved. Cook ravioli to package instructions. Place 4-5 ravioli's in a shallow bowl and pour 3-4 ladle fulls of broth over the pasta. Top with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

So good.
Mac, Chris and I LOVED this dish. Abbie and Tommy were not fans of the ravioli texture (it was their first crack at it!).


    Week 49's Game Plan:

    • Taco Tuesday
    • Mac's 13th Birthday 
    • Italian night
    • Breakfast for dinner

    Wrap it UP with last week's family table action:

    A close up of my cherry chipotle home plate. This chicken was so moist and flavorful, it fell apart with my fork touched it!

    Tonight = Breakfast for dinner. 

    Just call me waffles.

    Set the Table.
    It all starts at home plate.

    To the Mullies we go...
