This weekend's crock pot plans

Have you ever had Pollo in Potacchio?  It is a braised chicken dish, very light and pretty darn healthy.  It's one of the female half of this couple's favorite dishes from Cafe VIII 1/2 in Downtown Honolulu.  It's a very simple restaurant, small, by a husband and wife team.  It can get a bit weird in there, but nothing extreme...if you've been there, you know what I mean?

Everyone's favorite dish there seems to be Radiatore Verde which doesn't seem to have radiatore pasta in it.  Looks like penne pasta to us.  Anyway, the sauce looks like a pesto sauce with chunks of steak.  It's good, but not as good as the Pollo in Potacchio!  There was a table of 6 people - 4 of them ordered the Radiatore Verde.

We found some Pollo in Potacchio recipes and will be tweaking the recipe for the crock pot.  We may be ambitious and trying making a double order to have enough chicken and sauce for a Pollo in Potacchio Lasagna in the Crock Pot.  We'll see how that goes!
