We just got this crockpot for Christmas and I don't cook at all. (Almost burnt the house down making grilled cheese sandwiches and soup) I want to give this thing a try. Anyone know any easy crockpot recipes? I'd like to make something with split chicken br___t if you can.? I have no idea what I am doing. It should be comical! Thanks in advance.

A SUPER easy recipe is to wash the chicken and throw it in the crock pot with a bottle of Bar-B-Q sauce. I turn mine on high while I'm getting dressed and ready for work, then turn it on low. I let it cook while I'm at work, and by the time I come home, it falls off the bone and is DELICIOUS!

You can add mushroom soup into the crock pot w/ a bit of water, onions, and chicken to make cream chicken..... I make lots of chili, stew or soup with mine. Also they are great for roasts (smaller ones), just put it in the pot w/ some water and seasoning and slow cook it... aahhh the possibilities are endless!

Ginny how long do you cook it for? How do you know if its done? I feel so dumb! Sorry :)

My dh makes a great roast, 1/2 lb-1lb beef or pork per person, 6-10 red potatoes depending on size, bag of baby carrots,1 medium onion, 4 oz can green chilies, spices to taste. place meat on bottom, coat with pepper, and garlic salt, spread green chilies, add slices of onion all around. then add slices of potato and carrots over the top. if you are starting it in the morning b4 work simmer on low all (6 hours) or simmer at high for about 3 hours in our crockpot it is not nessicery to add water alltthough it may be with yours 1 or 2 cups should be enough. there are a bunch of crockpot recipies at

Just make sure you always add some water to it before you leave the house for a while. This is an easy one, get a pork roast, any kind, doesn't matter, the fattier the tastier though, throw that in the crock pot, a bag of those mini carrots, peel some potatoes and cut them in half and put them in there and then get a cabbage and cut that in four pieces. Add about 2 inches of water to the crock pot, throw in a can of cream of mushroom soup in with the water, kind of mix it up a bit, then put the meat in, potatoes, carrots and cabbage on top. Set it on high and it'll be ready in probably 5-6 hours. I leave mine on high when I leave for work and then turn it on low when I get home even though it's ready to be eaten. Yummmmmm!!!!!

I make a really easy and satisfying soup from hamburger meat, chopped onion, and diced up potatoes. Just throw everything in, cover with water, add salt and pepper, cook on low all day and by supper time you have a yummy soup!

Another meal my kids love is pepper steak...just get some stew meat (already cut up) about 2 packages, put that in the pot with about 2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of soy sauce and let it cook all afternoon ( about 6hrs.) then the last 1/2 hr. you cut up 1 green pepper and 1 red pepper and add corn starch to thicken...then I put it over brown's GREAT! I also like making chicken soup in the crock pot....ya, so many things you can do...I love my crock pot :) especially on hot summer days bc I don't have to turn the oven on.

I make the BEST lasagna in mine! You take lasagna noodles and layer the bottom, then put 1/2 of your hamburger meat on top of that, top that with 1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce, 1/2 carton cottage cheese, 1/2 bag of moz cheese. Then do it all over gain, starting with the noodles, hamburger meat, sauce, cheeses, then over that pour 1/2 cup of water, let it cook on low for about 5 hours. EVERYONE LOVES MINE!!! (make sure your hamburger meat is cooked b4 the crockpot) I also make White Bean Chili, take cooked chicken b___sts, can of green chilis, 2 cans of great northern beans, chicken stock, and let that all cook. Then put it ontop of corn chips and top with moz cheese.

I throw in a few boneless skinless chicken b___st. On top of that I add a big can of cream of mushroom soup, on top of that I put stove top. But first put dry stove top in a bowl, add just enough water in it to get seasonings mixed with the bread then add to crock pot on top of cream of mushroom soup. Let cook on high for a couple hours and there you have a full meal.

They sell ready-to-cook crockpot meals, in the freezer section at the grocery store. I think they're made by banquet. I haven't tried them but my sister has (I gave her a crock pot after she nearly burned her place down baking cookies) and she says they're really easy and pretty good.


to eryn - January 25

hey, they have these new frozen meals made for crock pots where all you have to do is throw the in the pot and time don't even have to add anything! My husband still thinks that I learned how to cook and I just throw stuff in think your bad..I burnt frozen pizza, cannot even make coffee...if I can do it Anybody can!!
