    Chicken at a Whim

    I double the sauce & add a handful of Thai peppers. We love it served it with rice & egg rolls.

    4 to 6 chicken breasts, boneless/skinless
    1 onion, sliced
    1 cup dry white wine
    15-oz can chicken broth
    2 cups water + 2 chicken bouillon cubes
    6-oz can sliced black olives, undrained
    1 small jar artichoke hearts, chopped
    2 to 5 garlic cloves, minced
    1 cup elbow macaroni
    salt & pepper to taste
    1 envelope dry savory garlic soup (or onion)

    Place chicken in crockpot, layer onions. Combine remaining ingredients, except dry soup mix and pour over chicken. Sprinkle with dry soup. Cover & cook on low about 6 hours, until chicken falls apart.

    · The noodles over cook a bit much, so you may want to leave them out or cook them separately.

    To Die For Roast

    1 beef roast, any kind

    1 package dried brown gravy mix

    1 package dried Italian salad dressing mix

    1 package dried ranch dressing mix

    1 cup water

    Place beef roast in crockpot.

    Mix together the dried mixes together in a bowl and sprinkle over the roast. (I like to roll the roast first in flour, salt & pepper, then brown in olive oil.

    Pour the water around the roast.

    Potatoes & baby carrots added to this midway, are very flavorful!

    Cook on low for 7-9 hours

              Chicken, Gravy & Stuffing

              4 chicken breasts
              4 slices swiss cheese (I add some pepper jack)
              1 can cream of chicken soup
              1 can cream of mushroom soup ( I like cream of celery)
              1 cup chicken broth
              1/4 cup milk
              2 cups herb stuffing mix (I use more)
              1/2 cup melted butter (I use 1/4)
              salt and pepper

              1. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper and place chicken breasts in crockpot.
              2. Pour chicken broth over chicken.
              3. Put 1 slice of swiss cheese on each piece of chicken.
              4. Combine both cans of soup and milk.
              5. Cover chicken with soup mixture.
              6. Sprinkle stuffing mix all over.
              7. Drizzle melted butter on top.
              8. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Six is always perfect for me.
              DO NOT STIR

              *This is most excellent! The chicken tastes like oven roasted. I have also used turkey cutlets & turkey gravy in place of one of the soups, topped with cornbread stuffing.

                      *DOUBLE the sauce ingredients or it won't be enough! I also brown my roast before putting it in the crockpot.

                              Cream Of Green Chile Stew

                              1 pound chicken, beef or pork, cubed ( I use like 2 to 2 ˝ lbs chicken)

                              1 onion, chopped

                              1 T. oil to brown meat

                              2 medium potatoes, peeled & diced

                              1 cup water

                              1/2 t. garlic powder

                              1/2 t. salt

                              1/2 to 1 t. green chile powder

                              1 large can whole green chiles, chopped – you get more flavor chopping them yourself

                              1 can cream of chicken soup, diluted with one can water

                              Boil potatoes in salted water until tender, set aside.

                              Brown meat in oil and sauté onion until translucent.

                              Add the 1 cup water, garlic powder, salt, green chile powder and chopped green chiles. Cook at low boil for 5 to 10 minutes; add soup with 1 cup water; mix well and add potatoes – heat through.

                              ** The first is real good in the crockpot (just dump all & cook until the chicken falls apart). For burritos maybe cook it up and shred the meat, wrap up with cheese and onions, top it with the sauce & bake it up.

                              -I have used the store bought green chile sauce, but always add more green chiles to give it more flavor. They are mild so you can use as many as you want.
