Dutch Oven Sprite Chicken and a Le Creuset Giveaway

Le Creuset Dutch Oven Chicken


With the official start of fall just a few days away, I've been thinking about soup, chili
and one pot meals to add to our dinner rotation.  There's nothing better than sitting
down together as a family after a long day of work and school and enjoying delicious
comfort food!

Le Creuset Dutch Oven Chicken




















Le Creuset dutch oven is perfect for one pot meals! I love mine so much and use them
often!  The quality can't be beat and they will last a lifetime.  This 5 1/2 quart dutch oven
is one of my favorites.  The color is hibiscus and it's the prettiest shade of pink!

Le Creuset Dutch Oven Chicken





















Today's one pot meal is called Dutch Oven Sprite Chicken.  I pinned this recipe a few
months ago because it calls for ingredients that everyone in my family loves, so I knew
I couldn't go wrong with this recipe.  And the Sprite soda had me intrigued.

I was right - everyone loved it!  You can't really taste the Sprite, it just adds moisture
for the vegetables to cook, so you could certainly substitute chicken broth instead,
but the Sprite soda was fun to try.

Le Creuset Dutch Oven Chicken

Le Creuset Dutch Oven Chicken





















Dutch Oven Sprite Chicken

1/2 pound bacon, cut into bite-size pieces
3 large boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 T seasoning salt (I used Lawry's)
1/2 C all-purpose flour
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 pounds red potatoes, cut in 1-inch cubes
1 pound carrots, cut in 2-inch pieces
6 ounces Sprint (lemon lime soda)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Fry bacon in a 5 1/2 quart Le Creuset dutch oven.  Remove bacon pieces
with a slotted spoon, leaving the grease inside the pan.  Set bacon aside.

Combine seasoning salt and flour in a large resealable plastic bag.  Add
chicken to flour mixture and shake to coat.  Add coated chicken pieces
to dutch oven and brown in bacon grease.  Remove chicken and set
aside.  Add onions, potatoes, carrots, chicken and bacon to dutch oven.
Pour Sprite all over the top.  Cover with lid.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Carefully remove from oven.
Remove lid and let stand 5 minutes before serving.

Serves 8.

Enjoy!
