    Wasn’t feeling too hungry last night, so skipped the salad and just had a few grilled chicken wing segments with ranch.

    I am surprised it took this long to fail!
  7. Hi Kim! I have not used the slow cooker function on the IP, but cooking potatoes that long just doesn’t seem necessary. Lately, I have been steaming my potatoes until fork tender, about 20 minutes, then tossing them with other recipe ingredients. Hope this helps!

I first encountered crash hot potatoes on Ree Drummond's website. Also known as The Pioneer Woman, Drummond credits Australian food writer and cookbook author Jill Dupleix with the inception of this preparation.”

  15. When pan frying, I add at least enough oil to the pan to come half way up the height of the protein. PS: After coating the protein in the bread crumbs, I let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes or so, to help the breading stick to the meat during cooking.
