Crock Pot Recipes - Week of March 1

Mar 1, 2010

Last week went GREAT with all my new crock pot recipes.  I really felt like it made my evenings so much easier!  (And, many of my friends seemed to enjoy re-discovering their crock pots, too!)

Here are some recipes to try out this week (or next - and maybe grocery shop for these items this week.)

1. Smoked Sausage/Potatoes/Green Beans


Potatoes (quartered and skins on)
Smoked Sausage (Cooked) (1 to 2 pounds) – I use HillShire Farms brand
Green Beans (2 to 4 cans)
Here's what ya do:

Spray your crock pot with cooking spray, layer the potatoes in first, then the smoked sausage, then the cans of green bean WITH the liquid. Salt and Pepper to taste, turn the cooker on low and off you go!

2. White Chicken Chili

2 lbs chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
48 oz. jar of Great Northern Beans
1 can crushed pinapple
16 oz jar salsa
8 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
8 oz. can chicken broth

Combine all ingredients in your crockpot and cook on LOW for 5-6 hours

3. Garlic Bacon Chicken

6-8 med boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 pack thick sliced bacon
2 cans roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped onions

Wrap each breast with thick slice of bacon. Cover bottom of CP with very fine layer of soup before you place chicken in bottom. Mix remaining soup, sour cream and flour in bowl with whisk. Cover chicken completely. Sprinkle onions on top, and arrange 2-3 bacon slices on top also. Cover and cool 6-8 hours on medium, until thoughly cooked. Serve over Lipton Quick Sides Alfredo Noodles. Simple and easy, this is SO good!!

4. Chicken with Bowtie Pasta

3 lbs of boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks (about 4 to 6 chunks per half-breast)
8 oz. Cream cheese
1 ½ to 2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced (or an entire “small” package)
½ stick butter
1 envelope Good Seasons [dry] Italian Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix
1 cup white wine
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 box bowtie pasta

First, brown cut up chicken in skillet. It is recommended that you brown the chicken with either a little bit of extra butter or Pam. ( You do NOT have to brown the chicken...just a suggestion.)

Place browned chicken, cream cheese, mushrooms, butter, Italian dressing, and mushroom soup in crock pot. Pour 1 cup of wine in pan where chicken was browned and de-glaze the pan. Pour over all the other ingredients in crock pot and cook on low for 8 – 10 hours. Stir occasionally.

Serve over cooked and drained pasta. Yields 6 – 8 servings.

5. Dessert – Apple Dessert

4-5 cups peeled and sliced apples.
2 tbsp. flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
2/3 cup quick-cooking or regular rooled oats
3 tbsp. melted unsalted butter.
3/4 cup brown sugar/packed

Put apples in a mixing bowl
Toss with the flour and sugar.
Stir in raisins,cinnamon,and oats.
Pour 1 cup of water into crockpot.
Add apple mixture.
Pour melted butter over apples.
Sprinkle with brown sugar.

Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours.

Great with good vanilla ice cream,or fresh whipped cream!

They look great! Would you say that your apple dessert is like an apple crisp?

You know, I'm not really sure. I haven't tried it yet - it just looked yummy!

Jenny said...

Kelly, on the chicken & bow tie pasta, is that with or without the skin? I'm assuming boneless, skinless, but my assumptions prove wrong quite often. :-) It sounds delish & I think I will try it this week. Leslie Bradshaw

Yep - bonessless, skinless. I think I'll make this one this week, too!
