    Tag for later, love using my crock pot. I mostly use it for cooking off chicken breast for my salads and crockpot oatmeal.
  • chyloetchyloet Posts: 198Member Posts: 198Member search "slow cooker" ... the barbacoa beef is delish ... Just like Chipotle!

    My own personal fav ... 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (seasoned w salt, pepper and garlic powder)
    1 can (28oz I think, the big can) Las Palmas green enchilada salsa
    in the slow cooker on low all day
    shred (seriously, it falls apart on its own) and serve over rice w corn tortillas (or not)
    Use leftovers for quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas, salad, whatever ...
    super easy and a family favorite in my house :)

    1 can of black beans
    1 can of pinto beans
    1 can of corn
    1 jar of salsa

    Place chicken breast in crockpot & add all of the ingredients on top. Slightly mix around. Cook on low for 8 hrs. Great by itself or as tacos and burritos.

    Lemon Garlic Chicken Crock Pot Recipe

    Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Mix together the lemon pepper seasoning, paprika and salt. Coat the chicken with the spice mixture.

    Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan Recipe
    2 tsp. olive oil
    4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 3 oz.) each
    1 1/4 cups crushed tomatoes
    2 large cloves garlic, crushed
    1 tsp. Sugar
    Pinch of celery seeds
    2 tbs. dry red wine
    1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
    2 tbs. grated Parmesan cheese
    *Optional: serve on top of some 0 Calorie Miracle Noodles to really bulk up the dish without added extra calories or Points

    Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over med.-high heat. Add the chicken and saute, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 10 min. Combine the chicken and next 5 ingredients in the crock pot. Cover and cook on LOW until the chicken is cooked through and a meat thermometers registers 170 degrees – approximately 6-8 hrs. Combine the cheeses in a small bowl and sprinkle them over the chicken. Don’t stir. Cook until the cheeses are melted, about 15 min.

    Serves 4

    I have so many more but these are all good starters. Check out this website, it has great recipes for the crockpot as well as low calorie recipes.

    Pork loin and beans:

    Empty 2 cans of great northern beans or cannellini beans into a crock pot and add ½ cup of your favorite bbq sauce and add one chopped onion, cumin and cayenne to taste. Take a 2 pound pork loin and season with cumin and cayenne and coat with bbq sauce. Then press shake and bake onto pork loin. Cook in crock pot for 6 to 8 hours on low. To crisp pork you can remove and place in the over under the broiler for 15 minutes if you like.

    I like to make a veggie soup in mine!

    1lb extra lean ground beef
    2 cans of diced potatoes
    2 cans of diced or whole tomatoes
    1 can of tomato paste
    1/4 a bag of frozen corn
    1/4 a bag of frozen green beans
    1 bag of frozen mixed veggies
    Chili Powder

    I use a lot of Chili Powder and I salt generously (I would prefer to drink a lot of water than eat bland food!). You can really use whatever veggies you want in this recipe these just happen to be what is normally in my freezer (steamer bags). The only thing you have to do is cook the beef before hand. I like to cook mine all day on low. I have noticed that if you don't salt it enough while it is cooking it won't taste right.

    I also like to make chicken & dumplings in my crockpot. Throw some Chicken breast, Cream of mushroom (consdensed) (optional), cream of chicken (condensed), garlic, salt, and Chicken broth (to thin) in a crockpot and cook for 8 hours on low. Add a can of biscuts to the mix an hour before. Be sure to cut them up in small peices as they tend to clump and they get bigger!

    The easiest one is BBQ Chicken w/ Pineapple. Just put the three ingredients in and add some hot sauce if you'd like. We eat this on buns and then use the leftovers to make BBQ chicken pizza w/ Great Value pizza dough mix.

    Sorry for not having measurements, but I've learned that it's easier to use you own judgement when it comes to consistency. Some people like things thick and some like them thin. Also, seasoning is always to taste. I love salt and chili powder, so you may not like how much of those two I would put in!

    Made this one yesterday, adapted from the original (non-slow cooker) recipe from no ( This is one of the all-time Japanese and Japanese-American comfort foods.

    Japanese style chicken curry (makes 6-8 servings)

    2 Sweet Onions
    4 Carrots
    4 Small Yellow Potatoes
    1 Apple
    2 lb Chicken Breast
    4 Cups Water
    1 Tsp Garam Masala
    1 Tbsp Coarse Sea Salt
    1 Cup Frozen Peas
    + Curry Roux (see below)

    Thinly slice onions, cut carrots and potatoes into chunks, and put the veggies in the slow cooker. Core and peel apple and finely grate into the cooker. Place chicken breasts on top, and season with salt and garam masala (or you can substitute curry powder). Pour in the water, and cook on low for 6 hours

    Just before the 6 hours is up, make the Roux

    Curry Roux:

    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup flour
    2 Tbsp Garam Masala (or Curry Powder)
    3 Tbsp Tonkatsu Sauce (or Worchestire Sauce)
    2 Tbsp Ketchup

    Over medium low heat melt butter and stir in flour to make Roux. When smooth, add Garam Masala and let toast for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sauce and ketchup.

    Take chicken out and shred using two forks and return. Take a cup of the liquid from the slow cooker and mix into the roux and then pour back into the slow cooker. Add the peas and let it cook for another hour.

    Serve over rice or noodles.
