    One that I like to make that is really easy and not terribly unhealthy:

    Frozen Chicken Breasts
    Canned Black Beans, rinsed
    Frozen or canned corn

    Cook on low 5 hours. Place a brick of cream cheese (low or nonfat) on top and let cook another 30 mins. The chicken turns out really tender and makes great leftovers.

    This sounds divine. I never thought I could use a crock pot for dessert -- I'm trying this in the next few days!

    1 pork shoulder roast, boneless
    2-3 tablespoons olive oil
    4 medium tomatoes (peeled, if desired)
    1 onion, thinly sliced
    1 teaspoon cumin powder
    2-4 sprigs fresh oregano (or 1/2 teaspoon crushed or powdered)
    2 whole cloves
    2 bay leaves
    2 dried chipotle chilies

    Salt/pepper to taste

    If you do Facebook at all, look up Skinny Crock Pot. They have tons of GREAT recipes! I just made these two this week:

    Irish Lamb Stew


    2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 3/4 pounds white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed (see Tip) and thinly sliced
    3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
    1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves, chopped


    Combine lamb, potatoes, leeks, carrots, celery, broth, thyme, salt and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker; stir to combine. Put the lid on and cook on low until the lamb is fork-tender, about 8 hours. Stir in parsley before serving.
    (It's Delicious!! And the meat turns out SO tender!)

    Balsamic Chicken

    4-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
    2 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    1 onion thinly sliced (Not chopped)
    4 garlic cloves
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 tblsp olive oil
    1 tsp each: dried oregano,basil, and rosemary
    1/2 tsp thyme
    ground black pepper and salt to taste


    Pour the olive oil on bottom of crock pot
    place in chicken breasts, salt and pepper each breast
    put sliced onion on top of chicken
    then put in all the dried herbs and garlic cloves
    pour in vinegar and top with tomatoes

    Cook on high 4 hours, serve over angel hair pasta.

    (this can also be slow-cooked over 8 hours. I added a bit more balsamic than called for, plus some fresh spinach under the onions and tomatoes, and it was wonderful!)


    Bumping for that lamb stew recipe!

    bumping for later-

    also- we make the Mexican Salsa chicken at our house- serve on rice, use in soft or hard taco shells, top a taco salad-- but use cheddar cheese soup - yummy! if you're at work all day- use frozen chicken breasts- on low for the day and it's "soupy" for over rice- on high for the day and it's thick for enchiladas, tacos, etc. .

    I think they are bumping the post up the board so this thread doesn't get lost. :)

    I need to try the balsamic chicken one. Love the skinny crock pot site, too!

    I've not done the cranberry one with turkey breast, but I have done it with chicken thighs and YUM.

    Yummy BBQ Beef
    Roast - trimmed of fat
    Your fave bbq sauce
    Onion diced

    That's it! Shred it up and put it on buns. You can do it with chicken, too. Or pork.

    Our new fave is this one:

    Chicken breasts in the bottom.
    On top: Can of southwestern spiced black beans, can of southwestern spiced pinto beans, 1/2 jar of our fave green chile sauce. YUM.

    Another yummy thing to try? Add canned pumpkin to your fave chili recipe. So good!
