2 Crock Pot Recipes I do fast!

Shredded bbq chicken: put 4-5 frozen chicken breasts in crock pot, cover in bbq sauce and western dressing...cook on high about 4 hours and shred! Put on a bun and yum! I serve with KFC coleslaw and baked beans.

Buy any kind of roast, rump, shoulder..whatever. Put it in a crockpot, pour a can of chunky soup over it and walla! Make the soup/broth into gravy for over mashed potatoes or something...I use my food processor, but my bff just mashes it with a potato masher for gravy. About 8 hours on low, or 4-5 hours on high depending on the size. I serve with mashed potatoes and green beans, and cresent rolls!

Re: Need some easy and fast recipies...

Here's our fast favorite!

Mandarin Meat and Wild Rice

1/2 - 1lb of pork, steak, or chicken, cut into strips
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 can (11 oz.) mandarin oranges
1-1/2 cups of water
1 tsp soy or worchestershire sauce
1 pkg. (6.2 oz) fast-cooking long grain and wild rice mix
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions

1. Sprinkle meat with pepper and salt. In a large skillet, brown meat in oil. Meanwhile, drain oranges, reserving juice; set oranges aside.
2. Add water, rice mix with contents of seasoning packet, onions, soy or worches, and reserved juice to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until meat is cooking through and liquid is absorbed. Stir in oranges and heat through.

^I got this recipe on DS somewhere! I love it because it's so versatile with the meat. I always keep the wild rice mix and oranges on hand, so I can throw it together whenever I need a quick meal.
