Slow Cooker Experiments
I have been using the slow cooker these past two days. Thank you to everyone for the recommendations about the whole chicken! I have it in the freezer because the head and feet are still on it. I need the hubby to chop those things off because it scares me every time!
I used what I had on hand and this was pretty good! I put potatoes, carrots, onions and then raw chicken breasts in the slow cooker.
Added about a cup of water and two cans of condensed cream of chicken soup. I threw in some herbs and kept it on low for 8 hrs.
The hubs loved it and it was quite tasty over rice. It was a bit salty for me but not bad.
I personally like cream of mushroom better than chicken. Maybe I’ll try that next time.
This was dinner tonight! A sort of “anything in your pantry” chili.
I had a cans of marinara sauce, tomatoes, kidney beans, and half a jar of salsa.
Threw all of that in the slow cooker with fresh onion, yellow and green peppers. I had fresh tomatoes too so I chopped those and added them as well.
I had chili seasoning and I fried some ground beef separately. Drained the fat and added to the slow cooker and stirred.
Low for 8 hours and it turned out absolutely amazing over rice.
It was an experiment but not bad for a fast, hassle free meal.
I’m loving the slow cooker! Can’t wait to try more experiments and recipes!
I’m so full. Food coma!
