The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Slow Cooker Indian Spiced Braised Chicken

Slow Cooker Indian Braised Chicken

When this recipe from Everyday Food was posted over on Bev Cooks I just had to try it, it was from one of my favorite magazines and involved a slow cooker. If you haven't checked out Bev's blog you should, I'm always drooling over her posts and she's crazy, in a good way. If you haven't checked out Everyday Food you should get on that as well, the recipes are never too difficult and it has a lot of great options for the busy cook. I have almost every issue since 2006 saved, it's pretty much the only thing I hoard (I'm a purger), but I love pulling old issues out and finding 'new' recipes to try. 

Onto the Indian Spiced Braised Chicken, this recipe is so easy I don't know if I can even consider it cooking. As always, it was great coming home to the smell of a delicious dinner in my apartment. Everytime I use my slow cooker I fall in love with it again, I really need to use it more.  Keep reading for the recipe with a few adaptions.

1 package boneless chicken breasts (approx 1.5 lbs)
