Happy Tuesday, Y’all!

Today’s focus is on: MOLASSES

Molasses is a by-product of sugar making. Molasses is what is left when the sugar is separated from the juice from the sugar cane. There are three grades of molasses: light, dark and blackstrap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s today’s TRICK: When using molasses, lightly grease whatever you’re measuring it in so it doesn’t stick and drops out easily with no sticking.

And here’s a TIP: Blackstrap molasses are full of B vitamins and are good for you. Look for them in the grocery store, keep the jar closed up in a dark pantry and it will last a good long time.

1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
1 cinnamon stick
6 (4-oz.) boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Combine all ingredients, except the chicken in the slow cooker. Stir to blend well.

    Wow, that is a lot of soy sauce! Is there something else I can substitute that would lower the sodium count?

      HI! Try using 1/4 cup soy sauce in the recipe :) this will significantly reduce the amount of sodium.
