What's for supper? Orange crockpot chicken, and a muffin recipe

Tonight's menu:

Crockpot Orange Thyme Chicken, from Leanne Ely's Saving Dinner. Review: it was okay, but the orange flavour was a little intense, and it definitely needed salt. Oh well.
Egg noodles
Mixed vegetables

Ginger-oatmeal muffins


1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp. ground flax seed (optional, we had some so I used it)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

1 egg
1/2 cup canola oil or equivalent preferred fat
about 1 cup plain yogurt
a bit of applesauce, maybe 1/2 cup
water as needed to correct the dry-wet ratio

Preheat oven. Mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, then mix together, adjusting liquid if needed. The batter will start to look a bit bubbly right away, so get it in the oven quickly. Spoon into greased or lined muffin cups. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degrees F. Makes 12 large or 24 small muffins.
