Cilantro Chicken

Cilantro Chicken

I have a confession to make.  I am having a love affair with my slow cooker and cilantro.  

This affair has be long running, the slow cooker has a permanent place on the counter and ideally there is always fresh cilantro in the fridge.

I always aim to learn something new each day, but today I was floored.  At certain times of the year, Cilantro is hard to come by in these parts.  My friend and co-worker told me today that Cilantro and Coriander are the same thing – I say WHAT?!?!?!?!  Sure, we use different parts of the plant, but I could be substituting Coriander when Cilantro is playing Polkaroo! !!!  I’m also thinking it is time for a indoor herb garden.  Yes, that should be the next project, after the first batch of Kombucha of course.
