Cooking on a budget, day 3

This recipe is, well.. it's an experiment.  The Pizzeria by my office makes a chicken club pizza.. this is loosely based on that.

It's sort of a crock pot chicken club.

1/4 onion, chopped
4 chicken thighs, skin removed
4 slices turkey bacon, chopped
1/4 cup ranch dressing
1 Roma tomato, chopped

In a pan over medium heat add bacon and heat for 1-2 minutes, add onion and a pinch of salt.  Sautee until the bacon is just a little bit crispy and the onions are translucent.

Line the crock pot with a crock pot liner (if you don't have any an oven bag will do).  I always line my crock pot because cleaning that dang thing is a royal pain.

Bacon & Onion first on the bottom
ranch dressing
1 tsp Dry Italian seasoning
1 Roma tomato
Pinch of salt (to taste)

Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours
Add tomato in the last 1/2 hour

Serve with a salad or a side of veggies.

Now, it may not be pretty but it's pretty damn good.
