crockpot italian chicken

  Crock pot Italian chicken  Recipe:

  • 2-3 large chicken breast (more if your family eats a lot of meat)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • Dash or garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 brick of cream cheese 

In your crockpot add chicken ( I used 2 large breast, they are about the size of 4 smaller breast that I am use to).  On top of the chicken, add 1 table spoon Italian seasoning. Add 1/2 cup water, 1 can cream of chicken soup, and 1 brick of cream cheese.  Put the lid on and cook on high for the first 1 1/2 hours,  mix it all up with a spoon making a sauce.  Put the lid back on and cook on medium/low for another 2-3 hours.  We eat it over the top of white rice, my family loves it.

I forgot to add that you can use frozen chicken, just add an extra 30 mins  to cooking time.  I love to take the chicken out of the freezer and pop it right into the crock pot…easy!img_0241

Honey Garlic Chicken ~ Crock Pot Recipe

Honey Garlic Chicken

by Tiffany

Put your hands in the air if you love your crock pot! I LOVE when I find a great crock pot recipe or develop one, don’t you?! They just seem to make my sometimes crazy schedule much less hectic. The other night I was thinking about a recipe my mom gave me years ago. The recipe wasn’t for the crock pot and wasn’t even for chicken, buuuut I had an idea and got to adapting. Voilà! Honey Garlic Chicken was born. This recipe got a big thumbs up all around the table. I served Honey Garlic Chicken along side steamed broccoli with sour dough garlic toast, but rice or mashed potatoes would have made a great companion too! Enjoy.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 7 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 heaping tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. In your crock pot/slow cooker, whisk together ketchup, honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, onion and red pepper together.
  2. Place chicken breast in crock pot/slow cooker, spoon sauce mixture over chicken.
  3. Cook on low for 5 hours or until chicken easily falls apart.
  4. Remove chicken breast from crock pot. Whisk cornstarch into the sauce mixture in your crock pot/ slow cooker, cover with lid and set crock pot/slow cooker to high. Sauce will thicken after about 5 minutes. Turn crock pot/slow cooker off. Return chicken to crock pot, cover chicken with sauce. Serve.

Chicken Taco Soup, Quick Weeknight Meal

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. quick meal ideas. easy meals. chicken tacos. taco soup. quick weeknight meal ideas

Making dinner can be such a pain some nights, right? I know on a weekday when everyone is gone at school, work, sports games and practices, it can be hard to plan a good meal. Sitting down to dinner is important to us, but as the kids get older, sometimes that is not possible. On those nights, I love that this can be ready and warmed up as they get home and get a chance to eat. This is a family favorite in our house and one of the easiest meals to make.

chicken taco soup. one pot meals. easy meals. quick meal ideas. chicken tacos. taco soup. quick weeknight meal ideas, ingredients

Recipe:

1 pound cooked, shredded chicken (could also used canned)

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 packet taco seasoning mix

1 can chili beans

1 can beans (I have used many different kinds and they all taste great!)

2 cans of water

Drain and rinse your can of beans, but NOT your chili beans.

Add all to a pot and mix together, making sure your cream soups aren’t lumpy. Bring to a low boil over medium high heat. You are ready to serve.

We enjoy it with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream, but you could use any toppings here. It is great scooped up with some tortilla chips, that is my kids’ favorite way to eat it.

This seems to be one meal that everyone will eat and enjoy, which in a family can be hard to find something everyone agrees on!

This also freezes well, so double everything and freeze half for later.
