Lemon Chicken (Yes this really is a post about food.)

I've realized that I would like to share more of my loves with my readers. You know about my writing but you really don't know much else about me. I love all sorts of things but on the top of list is cooking and sex. Yes, I know what an interesting combination.

I'm sure that it may be fun to combine the two and some people may cook while having sex but that is not my intention. I can't imagine hot grease flying all over the kitchen and me covered with flour while I’m trying to get my groove on. That image just does not appeal to me.

So, *cough* *clears throat* as you will notice there will be some posts about cooking (but not while having sex) and there will be posts about sex (but not about me having it and certainly not while cooking). But, in my short little existence I have noticed some very interesting topics about sex and I would dearly love to discuss those. I like a little (ok a lot) of spice in my life and what better way is there to add some than by talking about cooking and sex (again not together).

Now that I've gotten that nice ramble out of the way (you know I have to do it some time) here is what I'm cooking today.


1 chicken, cut in pieces (sometimes I just use legs or leg quarters
¼ c. flour
1 ½ tsp. salt
2 tbsp. oil
1 (6 oz.) can lemonade, thawed & undiluted
3 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. vinegar
¼ c. catsup
Combine flour and salt and coat chicken. Brown on all sides in hot oil. Put in crock pot. Stir lemonade concentrate, brown sugar, vinegar and catsup. Mix well. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on high 3 to 4 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours.

This is not my own personal recipe (though I do have many). I found this wonderful dish on

If you like to cook you should definitely check them out. There are all types of wonderful goodness there. I particularly like this recipe because it's in the crock pot. That means that I dump everything in and don't have to touch it again until it's done! Woohoo! Freeeedooooom! *clears throat* Sorry I got a bit carried away there.

Now, don’t just take my word for it. Try this most wonderful recipe and let me know how it goes for you.

Thanks for stopping by.

This sounds delish. How did it turn out?

It turned out wonderfully. I was concerned too because usually when I make it I use leg quarters or just legs but I accidently took out wings instead. The man and The boy both loved it though so I guess it really doesn't make a difference.

OOo, that does sound good! and easy. how ong do you leave in it the crock? Did you say and I just missed it?... might have been all the talk about sex.

I leave it in the crock pot for 8 hours on low. And yes the talk of sex can be quite distracting. ;)
