I COOKED I COOKED! Well, kinda...
Don't tell, I cut corners with CHICKEN PATTIES!!

Munchie Monday challenge:  Crock Pot Chicken Wing Dip

I don't find cooking relaxing.  Cleaning is more my Zen.  So when another Munchie Monday recipe called for cooking up raw chicken, I scoffed at it .... then procrastinated like any normal chicken-cookin CHICKEN (!)  I didn't even buy the ingredients until 6pm Sunday night.  There HAD to be an EVEN easier method for this already easy crock pot dip! (pathetic, I know)

Now, my husband Ethan was appalled when I returned from the grocery store with my creative substitution -- CHICKEN PATTIES!!!
(Seriously, I was looking for the fastest - & cheapest - fix).  He thought the dip would be ruined (Eric made the same face when I told him what my secret ingredient would be!).  But think about it -- it's a wing dip.  What wouldn't taste awesome in a chicken wing dip but breaded chicken to pull in the Frank's Hot Awesomeness!! 

For someone that doesn't cook, I thought this was an enlightening discovery ;-p

...and believe it or not, the office LOVED it! 
The Crock Pot returned home, without a drop of leftover dip
... what a successful downer (would have loved some leftovers to avoid cooking another night!)

Enjoy for yourself, and let me know if you take the bold chicken patty route ... I have paved the path for you, my raw chicken fearing friends!!!!  

(you can also use precooked chicken strips, like Tyson's; a listener also suggested canned chicken.  The Patties were just the easiest and least expensive substitute that lazy day I tried it)

It's not just you....

I can never get through an entire roll of correction tape without it unraveling.

This thing had a mind of its own -- it was ready to wrap me up in a straight-jacket!!
Sometimes the Old School Whiteout just beats its upgrade. 

....thanks to Judy who called this morning, relieved it wasn't just her that this happened to!
