try putting some chicken (you can do boneless or bone in..bcs it falls right off the bone with its done) in the crock pot and add a couple cans of cream of mushroom soup. put it on low all day, and then spoon it over rice or noodles when you serve it up.

I used my slow cooker again today. It came out yummy, so I thought I'd share. I don't like using the soup mixes and boullion and things because of the sodium content. I put diced onion and a few whole garlic cloves on the bottom of the pot. I then took a pot roast (1.5 lbs.) and laid it on top of the onion layer. I added salt, pepper and dried oregano and basil. I then poured a can (14 oz.?) of tomato sauce and a can of beef broth over the meat. I cooked it on high for 4 hours. I shredded the meat with two forks and served it with tortillas, sour cream and cheese. It made great tacos and would also be good in a sandwich.

I just made my favorite chicken recipe this week with my slow cooker. Put chicken breasts in the crock pot (raw) and then mix a can of "cream of" soup (celery, chicken, mushroom.....your choice) 1/2 a packet of dry lipton onion soup mix, and a few splashes of milk to dilute it a bit. Pour the sauce over the chicken and let it cook on low all day. I put mine in at 6:30am the other day and when I got home at 5 the chicken was falling apart, it was so tender, and all I had to do was steam some veggies and microwave a packet of chicken flavored rice (I love quick food!) and we had dinner!

you need a joint of ham/bacon, 4 potatoes, carrots, 1 turnip, 1 parsnip, 4 leeks, a packet of soup mix(essential to contain pearl barley, red lentils and peas), about 8 vegetable stock cubes. half fill the slow cooker with cold water, put in the soup mix and allow to cook for 1 hour, cut the meat into cubes, add the meat and the vegetable stock cubes and allow to cook for a further hour, grate the turnip, carrots and parsnip, cut the potatoes into cubes and evenly slice the leeks, add the vegetables and allow to cook for about 3 hours or until cooked. dumplings can be added if you wish. And there you have yourself a healthy broth, perfect for the cold weather and its also freezable so its cost effective.

put skinless boneless chicken breast coat in flour and salt and pepper and then brown the meat in a fry pan on each side for two minutes just to lock in the juices. then add fresh carrots potatoes celery and onion with salt pepper and a little bit of oregano and basil in a crock pot deglaze the fry pan with some chicken stock or white wine add chicken and sauce to the crock and let it cook all day.....at the end make some biscuits and you got a great chicken and biscuit dinner in about four to six hours...it is delicious!

I just made split pea soup the other night. I threw together a couple cups of yellow split peas (I like the color better), a diced onion, a couple carrots, a couple celery stalks, diced ham, a box of chicken broth and some water, and salt and pepper. Cook on high for 4 hours and did an extra hour on low since someone couldn't wait and had to open the lid (takes 15 minutes after removing the lid to come back up to temperature). I love crock pots because you don't have to be exact. Serve with a splash of Tabasco on top. I sometimes add potatoes, too.

I've also found that things taste better if you brown them before sticking them in the pot, which sometimes defeats the purpose of using the crock pot. But if you brown them, you don't have to tend to the pot at all after that. Take a dish you'd normally make on the stove, like chicken cacciatore, brown the meat and onions and throw it into the crock pot with tomatoes, wine, herbs, and bell pepper.

have you tried Pepsi potroast?....24 oz pepsi (no diet), 1 package lipton onion soup mix. Add veggies the last 1 hr to 45 min before serving. Serve over egg noodles or rice. The remaining liquid makes a great gravy, but you will need to thicken with flour in another pan. Enjoy

Parents.com has a ton of awesome recipes that are family friendly for the crock pot... check it out! I also invested in a 5-ingredient slow cooker recipe book that i found at Borders last year... they're simple and easy! I never thought there were that many recipes for slow cookers!

We use our crock pot often-especially in the colder months. Here's one of our favorite recipe:



Chicken Fiesta Soup:

1 pound boneless/skinless chicken

1 can black beans (undrained)

1 small bag frozen corn

1 can diced tomatoes (undrained)

1 packet taco seasoning

(chicken broth)



put all ingredients in the crock-pot and cover with chicken broth. cook on low all day (or until done). serve with shredded cheese, sour cream and corn chips. YUMMY

There is a great blog-- www.crockpot365.blogspot.com. This mom made a New Year's resolution to use her crock pot every day this year. I've gotten some great recipes there, even baked potatoes!!!

I like to make fajitas in the crock pot. You add chicken breasts, bell pepper, onion a can of diced tomatoes and a taco seasoning packet. Let it cook all day and then serve it with warm tortillas and any toppings you like. They are so easy and usually a hit.

I also use my crockpot like crazy. I have a cook book, for mostly slowcookers called "The Big Cook". If you are looking for lots of new ideas, this is the book for you! Another thing I REALLY liked about this book in particular, the ingredients are things I tend to have in my kitchen already! So no need to really "plan" the meals.

Here is a recipe I use often (from the book of course)

Saucy Chicken:

2 lbs chicken pieces

3 tbsp water

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup ketchup

2 tbsp vinager

1 tbsp worcestershire

3 tbsp or 1 pkg onion soup mix.



4-5 hours in slow cooker on high or 6-8 on low

I serve this over rice, and double the sauce.



Sometimes I also sub the water with apple jucie or orange jucie... gives a new flavor!

This is my husband's FAVORITE soup...
1 rotisserie chicken - cut off meat from bones and cube/tear into small pieces
1/2 bag of baby carrots cut into small pieces
2 32oz cartons of chicken broth
2-3 C water
1 can cream of chicken soup
pinch of salt
1 large bag of uncooked cheese tortellini

I throw everything except the tortellini into the crockpot and let it cook all day long, and then about 45 mins before we're ready to eat I throw in the tortellini. Then I just let that cook until the tortellini is soft. Done! Tastes great on a fall day or when you or someone in the family is sick. I usually serve it with potato rolls.

PS
It is scaled fairly large because I have a big crock pot! The carrots and chicken can all be adjusted to your liking, and the amount of broth is purely because the pot is so large! If yours is smaller I would just use one, and still one can of cream of chicken. You can also make it on the stove in a hurry...tastes great either way!

I had a girlfriend who used to put chicken breast, cream of chicken soup ( I believe, could have been another cream of soup, but you can adjust to your taste!) potatoes and cheddar cheese at the end. Very easy and it was good! She even used canned potatoes, though I tend to peel my own when I make it now.



Also, you can cook your chicken through the day with some water and boullion cubes, take the broth at the end of the day, let it boil, add some noodles to cook, add the chicken and you have a quick chicken and noodles!

well, it's still beef, but yesterday I made an awesome supper! Take some round steak (cubed steak), slice it into strips or pieces, dust them in flour/salt/pepper mixture and brown quickly in a saucepan. Slice up an onion, throw it in the bottom of the crockpot, add the browned meat, then deglaze your saucepan with a can of beef broth to get the yummy bits into the sauce, then add that to the crockpot along with an envelope of onion soup mix, and a can of mushroom soup. I added some oregano and basil, worchestershire sauce, salt, pepper and paprika. Cook all day and serve over buttered egg noodles. YUM! If you feel like it, add a spoonful of sour cream to it when you eat it, then it's like stroganoff. Hope you like it!
