I have a daycare with 7 small children. I have 5 of my own and one grandson. My girls play softball and are football trainers for our high schoo team. I have no time to cook dinner so I love when I can find a really good "crock pot" recipe. If you all have any you would not mind sharing please feel free... :) Thanks so much I will return the favor

Crockpot chicken and rice
4 chicken breasts
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 stalks celery, diced
1 large onion, chopped(opt)
1/2 teaspoon Poultry seasoning
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup Minute Rice

Mix the cans of soup with the rice at the bottom of the Crockpot. You may substitute the type of soup you use in any combination (for example: 2 cans cream of chicken soup and one can celery soup).
Add the diced celery, onion, and garlic and stir. Submerge the chicken in the soup.

Turn heat to high for 10 minutes, then reduce to medium and cook for 4-5 hours. Or cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Variation: leave out the rice and serve over cooked Pennsylvania style wide noodles.

Note: Use temperature setting recommended by your owner's manual for cooking. Some crockery cookers have 3 settings - high, medium, and keep warm.

Don't use the "keep warm" setting instead of the "cooking" settings for extended periods. Sometimes the high setting will cause overcooking and you will lose the benefits of using a slow cooker. The high setting is best used to bring food up to a safe temperature quickly before beginning slow cooking at the "medium" or "normal" setting.

I do this in the oven or slow cooker, it's really very easy.
Chicken (I use breast, but I'm sure you could use anything), onion diced, garlic clove diced, 1 tin Cream of Chicken soup, 1 600 ml Thickened Cream, 1 small tin Super Sweet Corn Kernels & some cracked pepper to taste. With the chicken I use two skinless breasts which would be approx 500 grams. Cook until you think the chicken is appropriately cooked. I serve with Rice & veges, I'm sure pasta would be ok too. It is very tasty.

This is a really easy recipe. Put frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot and top them with any condensed soup of your choice, could be cream of mushroom, cream and broccoli, tomato, etc. One hour before it is done, put some frozen or fresh veggies in there and voila, you have a nutritious dinner.

You want a good one: My children don't hardly eat Califlower, but they do with this:

Slow Cooked Curried Chicken with Cauliflower

Ingredients

* 3 tablespoons canola oil
* 6 cloves garlic, minced
* 2-inch piece fresh ginger, minced
* 1/3 to 1/2 cup prepared South Asian curry paste (recommended: Patak)
* 3 cups chicken broth, low-sodium canned, or homemade
* 2 cups whole milk plain yogurt
* 6 bone-in skinless chicken thighs, about 2 1/4 pounds
* 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
* Freshly ground black pepper
* 1 (1 pound) bag red lentils, picked over (2 1/4 cups)
* 1 head cauliflower, broken into large florets
* 2 (16-ounce) cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
* 1 bunch fresh mint or cilantro leaves, chopped
* 1 lemon, cut in wedges
Directions

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Heat the oil; add the garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, until fragrant. Add the curry paste and continue to cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes more. Whisk the broth with all the aromatics in the pan; then pour the liquid into a slow cooker. Whisk the yogurt into the liquid.

Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper. Add the chicken, lentils and remaining salt to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours, adding cauliflower and chickpeas about half way through cooking.

Divide curry evenly into bowls and scatter freshly torn mint or cilantro on top. Serve with a wedge of lemon.

prep-time: 20 mins Cook time 6 hours

Put a pork roast in the crock pot. Cut up some onions (no special amount), and pour about 2 cups of applesause (chucky kind, with or without cinn.) over the roast, and turn it on high. Cook about 4 or 5 hours. You'll know when its done, cause it will fall apart, and the smell's to die for.

I LOVE my crockpot!!! I had to start working full time in December and have taken advantage of the crock pot! My kids have to eat as soon as we get home. We make everything from soup to meatloaf in there. This week, I made a 7lb. turkey breast in there. When I got home, I pulled it out of the crock pot and threw it in the over to brown it off while I made the mashed potatoes and gravy. YUMMY! The kids could not get enough of it.

take lamb chops or shanks place in crockpot with 2 cans tomato/garlic pasta sauce, 1/2 cup or so of sliced mushrooms1/2cup beef stock. all measurements are "ish" depending on how much of each you like. Put on to slow cook and then thicken 30 mins before serving with a bit of cornflour which i think in USA may be cornstarch i think. cheers

Quoting Faith:

Bleu Cheese Flank Steak...don't worry, my kids HATE bleu cheese but they LOVE this dish! I've had more rave reviews over this dish than any flank steak I've ever made. You can find this recipe and more on the Sample Menu of www.faithfuldinners.com. The Simple Slow Cooked Pork Roast is equally delicious!



this looks good....think I'm going to try tomorrow....

I love baking chicken (any part) with rice (2 cups) and cream of chicken soup (large can). I am sure it can be done in a crock pot too. Just ensure their is sufficient water for the rice ;)

hey i alway find this just a easy trick. use any type of steak. i generally use the cheap stewing steak as it all taste good in the end. and any vegies i have in the fridge potato, carrots, swede, pumkin(cut larger) etc and cut them to about 2cm cubes add enough water with any stock with a little s&p and any herbs and occasionally i add a tin of tomatoes at this stage for a little diff. turn on to cook on low for 6-8 hours and when you get home thicken with gravox ( make into a paste b4 adding) add peas and corn if desired (if frozen just zap in microwave for a few mins)then serve. i find this quick easy and cheap to make and is always yummy on toast or just by itself

this is the best! get a pork roast - about 3lbs is a good size. add 1 cup chix broth and 1 container fresh salsa (giant and safeway have a good one. you can you tostitos or the like but it doesn't turn out as well.) sprinkle with garlic powder and cook 6hrs on low. serve on rice with cheese on top. DELISH!

I like making Crock Pot Chili in the Crock Pot. You brown 1 lb. of ground beef in a skillet, drain off fat. Add browned beef to Crock pot, diced onions and diced green pepper (I keep some frozen diced onions and peppers in my freezer and just add a handful), 2 cans of red kidney beans (liquid drained), 1 can of diced tomatoes in liquid, and one packet of McCormick Chili Seasoning. Mix it all together and cook on low for 8 hrs. My family loves this with shredded cheddar on top.

My favorite recipe is the 3 envelope roast. No need to brown the roast. 1/2 a cup of water. 1 envelope of brown gravy. 1 envelope of Hidden valley Ranch salad dressing. and 1 envelope of Italian salad dressing. Pour this over your roast that's waiting in your crock pot for you. I set mine on low for 6 hours. The meat just falls apart. I have more recipes , but I'm have to go to work.

My weekend favorite is a beef stew -- I can set it up in the morning and then go out for the day without having to worry about it. Brown stewing beef in oil (you can do this the night before if you need to). Then just add it to a pot of beef broth with veggies, salt, pepper, and thyme, and let it cook for about 4 hours (or until the meat and veggies are tender). You don't even have to stir it!!
