CrockPot Cooking by TicklingCancer
So, I've been really getting into this whole crockpot cooking thing. I made a dish yesterday called "Weight Watchers Chicken Stroganoff" Really Simple and REALLY REALLY GOOD!!! Plus my Daughter LOVED it!!
1 pound chicken breast
12 - 1/4 ounces of cream of chicken soup (I used a can and a 1/4)
16 oz sour cream
1 packet lipton onion soup mix
I added about half a cup of "Kitchen Essentials" chicken stock.
Chicken in the crockpot, pour mixture over chicken.
Cook on low for 7 hours. When it's done, shred the chicken up in the juice and serve over egg noodles. MMM MMM GOOD!!
Anyone have some good crockpot recipes I can try??

I recently did this recipe from allrecipes.com - we thought it was good. I served it with noodles but would also try rice:
1 (3 pound)beef chuck roast
1 onion, quartered
1 (10.5 ounce) can beef broth
1 (1 ounce) packetdry au jus mix
1 (.7 ounce) packagedry Italian salad dressing mix (such as Good Seasons®)
1/2 teaspoonground black pepper
1.Place beef chuck roast into a slow cooker and scatter onion quarters around the meat. Pour the beef broth over the meat and sprinkle the au jus mix, Italian salad dressing mix, salt, and black pepper over the roast.
2.Cover cooker, set on Low, and cook until meat is very tender, 6 to 8 hours.
So you want to make that whole grain noodles, Fat free sour cream. Low sodium chicken stock and fat free cream of chicken soup.
Or google healthy substitute for can of cream of chicken soup.
Throw in a full bag of frozen veggies on top of chicken in the crock to help add fiber and veggies and to help stretch the dish. Wallmart has these beautiful hand cut veggie combos. I add two bags of them because they are small but great.
I use the crock pot for cooking all the time. I am a google fan so I just google the kind of recipe I am looking for and choose the one that looks the best for the day. All recipies and Food netowrk come up the most but I have found some others out there that are really surprising. Othertimes I just create based on what I have on hand. I love to cook Beef or Pork with a dark beer or red wine (dark beer gives great flavor especially with onion and vegies). Have fun with it!
I was going to suggest allrecipes.com also. I did a pork tenderloin. The family devoured it. Your recipe will be put to the test next week. Thanx. The crockpot can provide great meals without heating up the house. That will be useful if the weather ever gets warmer here in New England.
I love the eatingwell recipe site, Vegetarian times, Kitchen daily and Cooking light.
Plus I do the Show me the curry site and other ethnic sites too. We love all the beautiful flavors of the World and those spices are so HEALTHY.
I am Greek so we are cooking in the womb.
What ever your cooking add veggies..double and triple up on the veggies. Always chop up the fresh veggies as you buy them so they are always ready to go or munch.
Add sauted onion. celery, red or yellow orange peppers to everyhing you make with garlic and tumeric
And get yourself about 6-7 Fish recipes that you enjoy and get that in your diet.
Also do bean soups and stews..Get those bean soup packets from Big lots "Red mill" type.
Brown Onion, celery, carrots in a little oil and garlic. Make the soup and while cooking add diced eggplant to cook. When done add Balsamic vinegar to taste.
You can freeze this in plastic bags as you will get a big batch if you make the whole bag. Don't add the Balsamic to this until you are ready to eat.
This is a beautiful meal for just a few dollars per serving. I use the soup base in the jar when I don't have fresh. This allows me to control the amount of salt because if I add lots of veggies to the pot I don't need strong broth.
Served with a whole grain bread.. Read the label..
if its says enriched whole wheat .its not whole grain..This means the grain was stripped and then returned by way of processing. It must say whole wheat or whole grain without enrichment or make your own
make a couple nights per week no meat of any sort.
How about sweet n sour meatballs (or chicken)? 2/3 cup RICE vinegar, 1cup brown sugar, 2 cans pineapple chunks, green peppers and onions (optional), 3 Tblspn cornstarch, 3 tblsn soy sauce and ketchup. Mix dry ingredients, throw in crock pot with meatballs and everything else..(except green peppers and onions, they go in last.)
Let cook for 4-7 hours on low...quick easy and healthy. Serve over rice.
You can use pre-made meatballs. They arent too bad.
I love making chili in the crock pot! If you don't have a pinterest account (pinterest.com), I suggest making one just for the food board! I have found so many recipes on there of all kinds and it's a great way to keep track of all the internet recipes I want to try in one place (you make virtual "pinboards" where you "pin" websites and you can organize and save them).
