Someone posted Pepperoncini Beef sometime ago and I modified and simplified it to chicken because that's what I have at home. Then I made it into salad topping which I thought was really yummy and healthy...

Since I only made for 1 person (I made it in those baby crockpot ):

2 chicken breast (I defrost them in the microwave first to speed up the slow cooking)
1/2 packet of italian dressing mix
1/3 jar of Pepperoncini (12oz jar) with the liquid (the liquid is the best part).
Shred chicken when completely cooked through.

For the salad:
A bowl of Lettuce salad mix
2 TB of light sour cream
2 TB of chunky salsa
Then top the salad off with the shredded chicken.

YUM!!!
I think the only bad thing in this recipe is the sodium content.
But I'll drink a couple extra water to flush them out ...

Enjoy!

Set it & Forget it Brisket-

1 Brisket (approx 3 lbs, only 2 of us eat this & we usually get 3 meals out of it)
1 Can of whole cranberry sauce
1 packet of lipton's beefy onion soup
1 tsp of Horseradish (you can add more if you don't want itto be sweet)
wash & pat dry brisket place in bottom of crockpot
rub w/ horseradish
sprinkle soup mix
put cranberry sauce on top ( I sometimes use 2 cans)

cook on low 8-10 hours & then shred w/ 2 forks.
We love this! 1st meal we eat it w/ a starch(potatoes, dumplings,etc) & veggies
2nd meal is usually a sandwich on any bread (makes a great hot open sandwich on Italian bread!)
We had this last week. I love it!


Candy Pork
1-2lbs of any type of pork
brown sugar & honey mustard (I never measure these 2 ingredients)
put brown sugar & honey mustard in micro w/ some water & cook until thinned.
put pork in crock pot & pour sauce over it
cook 8-10 hours on low.
MMMMMMMM. I may make this tomorrow

Easy Chili

I am a divorced man so I don't really know how to cook. But, this is easy and delicious.

Poor a little Olive oil in a skillet
Add half a bag each of diced onions and green peppers. sautee for a few minutes then add 1 lb of hamburger meat. Brown and strain. then pour into a large crockpot.

Then dice up a cheap steak. Turn up the heat on the skillet as high as possible and brown fast. Keeps the meat tender.

Add a large can of tomato sauce and a large can of finely chopped tomatoes.
add two cans of pinto beans and one of mushroom ends and peices.

Add a packet of two alarm chili seasoning.

then i add a beer, but you could add a little water. if you use beer all of the alcohol will cook out.

do not drain any of the juice from the cans.

Simmer on low for about 8 hours. It is delicious.

Regards Smee

Does anybody know about making a pork roast with a glaze in the crock pot? I have a great cranberry glaze that I got off of cooks.com and I was wondering if it would taste the same in the crockpot and when do you add the glaze? In the oven you add the glaze the last 30 minutes. Would it be the same for the crock pot?
Here's the regular receipe it's sooo yummy. With it I make cheesy scalloped potatoes (Out of a box), a green veggie, and a Mrs. Smith Dutch apple pie for dessert. MMMMMMM!

GLAZED PORK ROAST

3 to 4 lb. boneless pork roast (seasoned to taste)
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. orange juice
1 can cranberry sauce

Season pork roast to desired taste (salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc.) in roasting pan. Add about 1/2 cup water in the bottom of pan. Roast approximately 30 minutes per pound at 350 degrees uncovered. About 1/2 hour before roast is done, heat and stir 16 ounce can of cranberry sauce, blending orange juice and brown sugar in pan, then brush on top of roast. Before serving, spoon remaining hot glaze over pork.

1 3/4 to 2lb. Pork Loin (center cut)

1 Can Ortega Diced Green Chilies (4oz.)
Spinkle of Onion Salt

Put everything in the crock pot and set to low for 8-10 hours. I always go 10 hours because I usually cook this while I am at work. 1/2 hour to an hour before we are going to eat I shred the pork with two forks and let it sit and soak up the salsa. I serve this on small flour tortillas with shredded cheese and sour cream. YUMMY!

This also works well with chicken breasts, if you are doing them for 8 hrs you have to put them in frozen though or they will cook to nothing I usually just do a can or 2 of Rotel tomatoes (2/$1 at walmart)

This has become one of our favorites:

Crockpot "Roaster" Chicken

1 large roaster

Dry Rub
***This rub is awesome. I think I will use it all the time for roast chicken!
4 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 med onion, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup cooking sherry or chicken broth
2 TBS butter
2 heaping TBS cornstarch mixed with water to thicken gravy


Mix rub ingredients.

Remove inards from chicken and wash and dry. Sprinkle rub inside and out of bird and under the skin. Place in a large ziploc and marinate in fridge for at least 2 hours, overnight is better.

Place a rack in the crockpot (if you do not have one, cut veggies can be used or make a rack using crumpled tin foil...this is to keep chicken higher than juices).

Add butter and sherry to pot. Stuff bird with onion and place on rack. Cover and cook on low for 8 - 10 hours (my pot cooks fast so it only needed about 7 hours...meat thermometer should read 170 - 180).

Remove chicken to cutting board and let rest about 10 minutes.

Strain juices into a sauce pot and bring to a boil. Stir in cornstarch/water and keeping stirring until thickened.

Remove skin from chicken and carve.

Serve with gravy on the side.

I've never tried rice, what kind do you use? Is it mushy?

I've copied & pasted these recipies to a word file. With DD's figure skating and DS with football practice every day, I need to rely on my crockpot more. DS's football coach wants the kids to eat 2 hours before practice or wait until afterwards to eat. Practice is from 6-8, so that means he needs to eat dinner right after school around 4:00ish. DH and I are both teachers so that's next to impossible unless I fire up the crockpot. We need to keep our meals healthy, so I love the recepes w/ chicken breasts. I guess I need to take stock out in the 98% fat free creamy soups!

Thanks everyone!

We just made this last week! It was REALLY yummy. I actually threw in some frozen peas and carrots and that made it even better.
