Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

i made this tonight and it's a keeper.
I followed some suggestions of other's on the site and used chix broth instead of water and used the fat free. low sodium chix sp but it still came out good. i also added fresh carrots and celery. it definatly needs some veggies...

Chicken and dumplings-came from allrecipes.com
INGREDIENTS
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons butter
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup
1 onion, finely diced
2 (10 ounce) packages refrigerated biscuit dough, torn into pieces
DIRECTIONS
Place the chicken, butter, soup, and onion in a slow cooker, and fill with enough water to cover.
Cover, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on High. About 30 minutes before serving, place the torn biscuit dough in the slow cooker. Cook until the dough is no longer raw in the center.
Did you know Allrecipes is home to over 400 crock pot

I really love my crock pot and want to use it much more often, especially now that the cold(er) times have come.

So, what are your favorite crock pot recipes? Please share with me/us!

One of the most made meals I've made in the crock pot is
Broccoli Chicken

3-4 chicken breasts
1-2 small cans of cream of broccoli (I use fat free)
Fresh broccoli

Place the chicken breasts in the crock pot, pour the cream of broccoli on top, if too thick, thin it w/some milk and cook on high for 4 hrs. After that add the broccoli florets on top of everything for another 15-20 mins (depending on how hard/soft you like your broccoli) and it's done.

Serve over rice, super yummy and quick.
I made this yesterday, and it was yummy!!! My only problem is that it cooked a lot quicker than expected (and my crock pot was on low), and then started to scorch the sides, so we had dinner about an hour and a half early. Thankfully, SO had stayed home from work! But I loved how tender the chicken turned out to be, and the cream of broccoli made a nice gravy to go over the brown rice! Yuuuuummy.

I'm glad you liked it. Yes, I've heard some crockpots are hotter than others so next time you'll know to use less time

Re: What's your fav. crock pot recipe?

Mmm.. it is 9am and my tummy is grumbling! Now I want to make a huge dinner!!

I use my crockpot a lot. I've got similar recipes for things that a lot of pp have already put up, and now I'll have some more! THANKS! Never thought of lasagna!!

I HATE pork chops, but my mom finally found a way for me to like them! Haha at 29! We went up there for dinner one night and when she put a pork chop on my plate I just looked at her. She told me I HAD to try it or I'd be sent to my room! HAHA!!! LOL!!
THEY WERE DELICIOUS!!

Basically this is what she did ...

Bought a jar of generic apricot preserves from the store. I am thinking like the 6oz size.
Put a package of pork chops into the bottom of the pot. (Hehe.. take it out of the package first and just put the MEAT from the package in the bottom)
Put the entire jar of apricot preserves over the meat. Now refill the preserves jar with apple, peach, pear or apricot juice and pour that in too. Let cook all day!

Mmmm... they are soooo moist. THey fall right off the bone. Mm... and they have a nice sweet flavor, but not too sweet!

Smiles,
Cat

ETA: I would probably change a few things next time with this.... like use cream of celery instead of cream of chicken soup. Maybe use more milk... and add some celery definitely, maybe carrots and potatoes, too. It was good, but it seemed like it needed something more.
Maybe add cream of potato soup instead? Just a suggestion...
