The hubster gifted me Nom Nom Paleo's Food For Humans this Christmas - and I have been devouring it's pages! I decided it was time to actually start devouring the food I could make using these pages, so I opened it, looking for the lucky recipe I was about to try.
I fell upon the recipe Slow Cooker Chicken & Gravy. Perfect! I just so happened to have a whole chicken in the fridge, needing to be cooked for this week's lunches! But then I read the ingredients, and my hopes came crashing down.
But I still needed to cook that chicken.
I decided to let the recipe guide me, and made substitutions as best I could. I even included my "secret" ingredients - anchovy paste.
The result was delicious.
The chicken was fall-off-the-bone juicy and the sauce really added a punch of umami. My substitutions were spot-on, and, lucky you, I'm going to share them today!
