Crockpot Bourbon Chicken

Did you ever think I would be begging for the newborn phase to return?

I mean, I thought I would when they were like 16 and driving. Or 18 and leaving to begin their own lives without me.

I didn’t think I would be wishing for those round the clock every 3 hour feedings at only 5 months old.

However, I am. Teething is the absolute worst. Especially when you have two times the teeth.

At least when the girls were newborns, I could count on them.

They would wake up to eat, be up for an hour max and then sleep for two. Jorge and I slept so much during the first month!

Teething has turned my babies into monsters. Adorable, drooling, screeching monsters. T

hey won’t sleep longer than 30 minutes during the day. And it’s an almost guarantee that one (or both) is going to wake up throughout the night because their teeth are bothering them.

I can’t sleep during the day. I can’t sleep at night. I’m practically a zombie.

So since I can’t even tell you what day it is (and I am up at the crack of dawn with plenty of time to start dinner), I have been making a lot of crock pot dinners. And this one is definitely one of my new favorites!

Usually I am not crazy about how a lot of Asian dishes come out in the crockpot. Honestly, I think it is because most of my favorite Asian foods are fried and nothing in a crockpot is fried.

Thankfully Bourbon Chicken is never expected to be fried, just delicious.

    Crock pot dinners are the best! I’ll definitely be making this within the month of March.

    I agree, many asain dishes in a slow cooker just arn’t the same without that crispy fried texture. I’ll have to try this one though.

    OH MY WORD. I NEED THIS STAT! Crockpot meals make my life.

    AND UGH!!!! Teething sucks. Why does it take so loooooooong?!!!

    oh how I envy your newborn phase sleep! My little girl is 11 weeks old and I have yet to be able to put her down for a nap. She’ll wake up and cry and can’t be comforted until she’s back in my arms. I try all I can but she’ll go until the next feeding without sleep if I don’t give in and hold her. Unfortunately “sleep when the baby sleeps” has been a fantasy for me so far. Hopefully change is on the horizon, and when it comes, I’ll have time to make this amazing looking chicken. πŸ™‚

    You poor thing! Teething is awful! But, yes, frozen waffles help (plus, hey, breakfast, sort of, lol). Also, unopened Otter-Pops. (The popsicle type things in the long plastic tubes.) Just hand them an opened one, let them chew on it for a while, then (if they haven’t punctured it) put them back in the freezer for next time! Good luck!! πŸ™‚

    Goooooodness me. This looks amazing! I’m so going in.

    And the twin teething, I SO get it. I swear all day long I’m like, “here suck on this. here chew on this. stop crying. you’re drooling on me. WHY GOD WHYYYY.”

    xo.

    You should try hylands teething tablets. They are absolutely AMAZING! Completely homeopathic and won’t numb their gag reflex like some of the other products.

    Girl, I cannot even imagine. Can. Not. I SO wish I was close by and could come watch those babies for an afternoon so you could take a long nap. Everyone in the world will give you teething advice, but at the end of the day there is no real cure. Stuff that may mildly soothe them temporarily, sure…but no real relief for you πŸ™ But usually we get a break right when I’m about to lose my mind…hoping that happens soon for you, too!

    I think this looks like an easy dinner for me to make for my okay, husband, it’s your turn to make dinner once this week, rotation. And bourbon is so good with chicken. Because as we all know, a happy wife = a happy life!

    I’ve heard that using storebought frozen waffles helps with teething babies.. I assume they are chopped into sticks??
