1 can of cheapo bisquits

Put 1st 4 ingredients in crockpot on low 3-4 hours. Then shred chicken w/ 2 forks. About 45 minutes before serving, cut bisquits into fourths w/ a pizza cutter. Add to crockpot (I switch to "high" at this point). Serve when bisquits are cooked through (stir well). You may need to double the recipe if you have a bigger family (we are a family of 3 and not real big eaters).
Dh lovesss this!! First time I made this he asked me how I made the dumplings b/c they tasted sooo good. I told him I was in the kitchen for hooouuuurrrssss....

Yes, it's really amazing that something this easy can taste so good!! Too bad it's not a little lower in fat. I serve it w/ mashed potatoes and either peas or carrots. Comfort food.......

I like to make pot roast and I also make a chicken dish and then use the chicken to make enchiladas (sp?).

I put in about 4 chicken breasts
Top with a jar of salsa
Add a little water

Once it's done, we take the chicken and make the enchiladas. It's good for chicken taco salads or chicken salads as well.

Yummy recipes everybody! I love the crockpot!!

I used my crock pot yesterday and today. Yesterday, I had a small whole chicken (I guess about 3.5 lbs) I put it in the crock pot, added a can of string beans and added some diced potatoes. Put poultry gravy over it and let it cook all day. It was great.

Last night, I separated the leftover chicken and veggies. Today, I shredded the chicken, put it in the crock pot with a generous amount of bbq sauce over it and kept it on the "keep warm" setting. We had the bbq chicken on buns with veggies. It was good!

I really liked it. My kids didn't like the chunks of tomato in them, but they are pretty picky.

I'm trying this one today! I already have it going in the crock pot. Thanks for the recipe

Is this going to be a dish I can bare smelling all day? Ive made bar-b-q chicken in the crock pot before and by the time it was finished i couldnt stand to eat it due to the smell.

I dont know if it was the bar-b-q that stunk or the chicken. Im used to the crockpot though!

I think ill make this today!

I really like the Crock Pot liners (sold near bags & wraps in grocery store) for easy clean up. They save lots of scrubbing.

One that is a family favorite is also the easiest ever.

Take some stew meat, throw in crock...add any spices you like ( I use grill seasoning), pour in a can of beef broth...cook on low about 7-8 hours...about a half an hour before serving, I wisk in a package of gravy mix and some fresh mushrooms....serve over mashed potatoes or egg noodles...

Very Simple.
