I’ve read that Bourbon Chicken got it’s name because it was supposedly created by a Chinese cook who worked in a restaurant on Bourbon Street.  Regardless of the name or how it came to be, this dish is absolutely delicious!

Not only is this easy to put together but my whole family just loves Bourbon Chicken!  The best part is just a few minutes of prep and then you can leave it to simmer in the slow cooker all day!  Chicken thighs are best in this recipe as they don’t get dry like slow cooked chicken breasts sometimes do!  We serve this over rice to soak up all of that delicious sauce!

We love apple pie at my house…  I mean we really love it!  Sometimes you just don’t feel like heating up the oven…  and this is the perfect no bake apple pie to satisfy the craving!

This pie has a deliciously apple-y filling that is rich and creamy yet still so light!  The taste is out of this world!

If you’ve never worked with unflavored gelatin, it’s super easy to use!  I always use the Knox brand  which comes in little packets, (each packet is enough for 2 cups of liquid and there are lots of fun things you can do with it!).  Be sure your gelatin/apple mixture is cooled before adding it to the whipped cream or your pie may be runny.
