A crock pot is one of the best tools you can have in your kitchen. It is a great way to cook, and it is almost impossible to not get the dish right. A crock pot is practically fool proof. The gadget was invented after the practice of Jewish housewives who put their food for the Sabbath in to the cooling ovens that were turned off for the traditional day of rest. The food cooked in covered pots in the dying fire embers all through the night. The next day the food was ready, and juicy and delicious. The crock pot is modeled after that practice. The lid keeps the juices intact and the low heat requires that the food, whether it is meat, chicken, fish or something else, cook for many hours. That combination of a long time cooking in a covered pot and cooking over a very low heat results in terrific results that turn out virtually every single time. So get your kids to try it with this recipe for tater tots, chicken and cheese. It will be delicious.
This recipe offers some great ingredients such as chicken that brings protein to the dish, potatoes that offer various vitamins and minerals, as well as cheese.
