Heart Attack Chicken

  • Save

This is one of my wife’s classic family recipes. I’m guessing the name comes from the obviously high saturated fat and cholesterol content in this meal.  My apologies to anyone affected by cardiovascular disease in its many forms.  But on a happy note, this crock-pot dependent dish is an easy way to prepare a large quantity of soft, delicious, and filling dinner for anyone. Anyone with taste buds that is.  The crock-pot allows you to get started on this dish earlier in the day so that you have more time to do whats important to you. So get out your crock-pot and get cooking…….and maybe eat some vegetables and do some regular exercise just to be safe.

    Easy To Chew

     Heart Attack Chicken is soft, moist, and contain multiple soft textures. Any meat has been prepared so that there are no pieces larger than ¼ inch (or 6mm). These foods are soft enough that, with minimal effort, they can be easily formed into swallowable-sized portions. 

    If you require a pureed texture, don’t worry, heart attack chicken can be made into a great puree! Puree the cooked rice in a food processor until the desired consistency is reached. If you need the rice puree thinner, just add some of the cooked liquid from the crockpot and blend until it’s how you want it! Blend the cooked chicken mixture separately in the food processor until smooth. Top the pureed rice with the pureed chicken and enjoy!

    Sodium is a critical component in nerve conduction. Without sodium, nerve signals would not be able to fire and basic body functions such as muscle contraction would not be possible.  90% of adults get too much salt in their diet. But statistically there has got to be some adult in this world who is sodium deficient. So if that someone is you, then I have some good news: Heart Attack Chicken is a rich source of sodium!

    This is mandatory if you are cooking easy-to-chew foods!
