Since we’re working from home today (thanks for dumping like 2 feet of snow on us mother nature), I’d like to get some use out of my crock pot. I absolutely love making meals in it but since I’m not comfortable leaving it on while at work, we only get to use it on weekends.
I took a package of chicken breasts out to thaw last night so thats what I have to work with. My kitchen is pretty well stocked with other ingredients so, any suggestions for what I could make?

I made these recently, they were pretty good.
We make a lot of chicken chili in our crockpot!

We use our a lot. My Fiance favorite way to make chicken in it is Cola chicken. It sounds strange but it really is good and it is weight watchers recipe so it is fairly good for you.
4 chicken breasts, 1 can of diet cola, I cup of ketchup. Put it all in put it on high till it just about boils then turn down to low and let simmer till it thickens and the chicken begins to fall apart.
Another one that we like is http://frugalfamilyrecipes.blogspot.com/2008/02/easy-crock-pot-chicken-and-rice.html
You can use cream of mushroom soup if you want, and you don’t have to do the peas.
There are a ton of variations on this that you can find. It is good and very easy.

I love making enchilada/taco mix in mine. In fact, I just did it on Monday! I start with frozen breasts because I do leave it on for the 8+ hours I am away at work.
3-4 chicken breasts
1 can rotel
1 can beans, any kind. (I prefer either black beans)
10 oz frozen corn
Put the corn in the bottom, followed by the chicken breasts, beans and rotel. Cook on high about 4 hours or on low about 8 hours. Using two forks, shred the chicken in the crockpot and season to taste with chili powder, salt, pepper, cumin, and oregano.
At this point it can be used for tacos, nachos, burritos, almost anything. I like to mix in 2 blocks of fat free cream cheese and use this as enchilada filling.

Easiest recipe ever is chicken tacos or salsa chicken
2 chicken breasts in the crock pot with a jar of salsa, cook on high for 3-4 hours then shred chicken with a fork and eat in a tortilla with cheese and other toppings

I just tried this yesterday… it was really easy and definitely a keeper for us.
4 chicken breasts
2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (i used lowfat, you can’t taste the difference)
1 package lipton onion soup mix
Cook on low for 7-8 hours. The chicken falls apart so just go ahead and shred it. Add sour cream the last 30 minutes of cooking (I think I used about 8 oz). You can also add mushrooms. Serve over egg noodles or rice (we used egg noodles).
