We always add sour cream to our Green Chile Stew and it's wonderful.

Love the cleaning tip, I'll have to try that!

I'm no great cook, but I've been inspired by all the crockpot posts, and I've used mine quite a lot the last few weeks. Mostly I use a jar of sauce, with either chicken or sausages - even though it's ready made sauce, it's still so nice to come in from work and smell something cooking. We have been eating much earlier too, which is great for my dd as it means she gets to bed ontime.

The last one we did was chicken curry -and it was delicious - I just made the rice when I got in and dinner was ready when the rice was done.

We love a sunday roast chicken!

But even better are the leftovers -- chicken sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches.

Weekly, I take chicken breasts (skin on) and cook in my crock pot, and its great. Just like the sunday leftovers.

Pour veggie oil in the crockpot, enough to cover bottom.
add chunks of white onion, carrots and celery.
Place washed chicken on top.
Add salt, pepper.
Add water, to cover chicken.
Put on high until cooked.

Enjoy!

Talking These are great ideas...

...I'm going to print them off now! I would love to hear more of your favorites... (I am not a cook, so I'm trying to learn the 'easy' way! )

I have a book on crock pot cooking, but haven't tried anything. I may post a few of the recipes if anyone is interested.

Happy Friday!!

Which crock pot is it that you are waiting for? I don't have a crock pot, was wondering what is a good one?

I just replaced my 1970s crock pot with a new one. I stayed with Rival but my new one has a removable 'crock' that goes in the dishwasher. What I didn't line about the old one (besides the lovely orange color) was cleaning it.

A source of new recipes is: http://www.justcrockpotrecipes.com/index.htm

dizneenut...

How did you make your Beef Stroganoff in the crock pot? I have to have good instructions, because I am a BAD cook!

I have posted this one before ....but this is GREAT...sticky chicken

CROCKPOT ROAST STICKY CHICKEN

4 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 large roasting chicken
1 cup chopped onion

In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove giblets from chicken, clean the cavity well
and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice
mixture into the
chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin. Place in a
resealable plastic bag, seal and refrigerate
overnight.

When ready to cook chicken put the onions into the cavity, put the bird into the crockpot and do not
add any liquid. As the cooking process goes on it will
produce it's
own juices. Cook on low 8 to 10 hours and it will be falling off the bone tender.

disneyfan551, I put some Beef Stew meat, Golden Mushroom soup, and a soup can of water in the crockpot on Low for 8 hours. When its time to eat, I boil some Extra Wide Noodles, drain, add sour cream, then mix the noodles w/ the meat & gravy mixture in the crockpot. It is super easy and tastes really good.

I am making a chicken dish tomorrow actually, I found a new spice packet in the spice aisle that is called Crockery Gourmet, they have one for chicken with veggies, one for pork and one for beef. I have the chicken one, that im putting together tonight to make tomorrow while im at work.
I have made Corned beef and cabbage which my DH says is the best he has ever had (probably because there is a can of beer involved in the cooking)
I have made beef stroganoff, and beef stew as well as pot roast.

I love everything that has come out of my crock pot thus far, but some of your recipes sound great!!
I will have to try them!

That is a great tip Annemarie, I usually try to rinse the pot before I eat, doing this I could eat while it is still hot....LOL
