    I do a crock pot Chicken stroganoff:

    2-3 Chicken breasts - frozen,
    1/2 pakage of Onion soup mix (I actually use 1/2 pkg due to sodium)
    98% fat free cream of mushroom soup (+ 1/2 can water)
    Onions
    Mushrooms
    16 oz Fat Free Sour Cream.

    Put frozen chicken in the crock pot, top with remaining ingredients, and allow to slow cook all day (I usually cook on low for about 8-10 hrs). Once done, cut up the chicken breasts into bite size pieces (sometimes I shred it), and pour over your choice of either brown rice or whole grain noodles. :smile: I don't recommend putting the noodles to cook with the rest, the noods always get over done... :tongue:

    I tried this one that I found here on the board last week:

    Buffalo Ranch Crockpot Chicken

    1lb chicken breast (bonless/skinless)
    1 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch Dip/Dressing mix
    1 bottle Franks Hot WIng Sauce (ZERO CALORIES)


    Put the chicken in the crock pot, sprinkle the ranch on top and pour the Franks Hot Sauce on top (as much as you want)

    I put it on for 4 hours..

    Then I turned it into wraps usin FlatOut (its like a flatbread) (90 calories, 9 grams of protein and 9 grams of dietary fiber)...

    Added lettuce, tomato, wrapped it up.
    This sounds so good! I must try it!

    Undoubtedly the best chicken tacos you'll ever have are made in a crockpot.

    You'll need 1 or 2 lbs of chicken (I used thighs; they're cheaper), 1 jar of salsa and a packet of taco seasoning. Dump all three ing. into crockpot. Stir, if you're into that sort of thing. And then set your timer to low. You can do this with frozen or thawed chicken.

    Here's the original recipe: http://mychocolatetherapy.blogspot.com/2012/01/crockpot-chicken-tacos.html

    I dare you not to stand over the crockpot, eating it straight outta-the-pot with a fork!!

    I make this too for taco night but instead of salsa I use 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, and I use a packet of low sodium taco seasoning. About 20 minutes before it's done I throw in a brick of fat free cream cheese and let that melt. It makes it really super creamy. We serve on soft or hard taco shells with just lettuce and a little cheese. The meat is so flavorful you don't need anything else. Actually having this for dinner tomorrow. I made a pot of it over the weekend and let it cool down and put into a freezer gallon bag and froze it. It's thawing in fridge now. I love quick and easy!

    You just blew my mind with the cream cheese idea. I'm SO game for that.

    Has anyone tried to make desserts in their slow cooker? I'm intrigued by the idea but can't wrap my brain around anything non-meat centric coming out of it, ha!

    I dont really know anyhting about meat. I just get the peice that looks the least ugly. meaning little to no visable fat. I put that in the crockpot with 1/2 cup water, 1/2-3/4 apple cider vinegar, and every spice i can find. Usually cumin, chili powder, healthy dose of cayenne. if I'm feeling choppy I put onion sliced and smooshed garlic.

    Made this for dinner tonight..very tasty..I added more low sodium soy sauce than it asked for..so I would change this 'to taste'. My husband loved it.

    1/2 Cup dry packaged Red Beans or 1(15 ounce) can Red beans, rinsed and drained.
