I’ve been experimenting with some crock pot recipes and made a really good one that seems to be lacking something. It’s almost like a chicken corn chowder. Gold potatoes, chicken breast, canned sweet corn, smoked sausage are crocked all day in chicken stock. Then chopped green onions are added close to the end, and garnished with shredded cheddar cheese. It was well received by the rainy clan and I thought it was good, but it seemed like it needed something to provide a little snap/crunch.
Might satisfy that by serving with oyster crackers, but it seemed like something actually in the stew would be better. I can’t think of anything that would work. Crocking all day is going to take the snap out of any veggies I add. And I couldn’t come up with anything I could add with the green onions that would be basically raw when added so late.
Any suggestions from the culinary Dope?
