Just because the temperatures are rising doesn’t mean you should put away your crockpot just yet. In fact, I think the heat wave makes for a great time to use it so you don’t need to turn the oven on. A one pot meal is perfect for those hot summer days that you spend at the pool and the bounty of peppers appearing at the markets give it a lighter layer. Simply throw everything in the pot while you go for a dip or upon your return and let this little number simmer while you clean off all of that sticky sunscreen. This is a Tex-MED rather than a Tex-MEX –– a mediterranean influence if you will. Tender chicken wrapped into sweet peppers, black olives and capers in Tex-Med Crockpot Chicken. Serve this over rice, potatoes, or polenta for a fairly easy summertime meal loaded with flavor.
