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

Chicken Cattcatiore(sp)Can't spell it but I can cook it LOL
I use mostly boneless,skinless chicken thighs..CheaperAnything w/o bones really.
You can add as much veggies as you like..Onions,spinach,mushrooms,peppers.I kinda throw any of those hanging around the fridge in the crockpot.Or not LOL
2 cans of tomatoe paste or a large can of crushed tomatoes.Add 1 cup water.Add more water as cooking if it's looking to thick,you want a nice thick,rich sauce but not stiff.
Oregano
Garlic
Just boil up some type of pasta and bam dinner is served..

Serve over rice, super yummy and quick.
My family has been LOVING THIS!!! Question - can prep it in the AM and cook it on low for 8-10 hours so it'll be ready when I get home from work?

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

This isn't really a recipe or anything, but it's what made me start using my crockpot again. I am gone from the house for too long to start the crockpot and leave it until I get home. So now I use an outlet timer, like for Christmas tree lights, that way I can set it for whenever I want it to turn on. It's awesome!

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

my SIL does this for all of her parties. (very so cal -lol)
a large pork roast
pour a jar of salsa on it
cook.....(whatever-all day...)
makes awesome burritos and tacos. she puts out the works.
i have done it and frozen the leftovers and they freeze well.


i make an awesome white bean soup. no recipe so let me sit down and think about it...

also thought i would mention that the taco soup back on page 4 or 5 is one our my familiy's faves. DH had it at a potluck and brought home the recipe. i would have never thought to bring a crock pot to a potluck. we now bring nachos in a crock pot to most potlucks. they go like crazy!

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Hearty-...ge/Detail.aspx

I use 12 oz total of beans, our faves are light kidney beans, dark kidney beans, black beans, and pinto beans and Hot Italian sausage. I always forget to add the corn and celery but I do add about 1/2-1 bag frozen corn. Dh has requested we add pasta next time to it so we probably will but it's oh so good and filling!

How did I miss this one?!?!?! It sounds so yummy! I'm going to make it tomorrow for the in-laws A question about the recipe though- is cranberry jelly the same thing as cranberry sauce? Or is it actual jelly from the PB and Jelly section of the store?

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

This is a family fave -

Apricot Chicken -

I make it in bulk, and then serve it as leftovers or freeze for another night -

6 - 8 boneless, skinless chiken breasts (although this works with legs and thighs too!)
Cook them in the crock from 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low.

With one hour left to cook, drain off the water from the cooked chicken and dump it, mix 1 packages lipton onion soup mix, 1 jar apricot preserves (also works with pineapple or peach preserves or a can of cranberry sauce), 1 bottle of catalina dressing (although I use low fat Ken's Honey French too!) and pour over chicken. Cook for another hour. I serve it over rice or just with mashed potatoes and a veg.
