Crock Pot Recipes

I bought a Crock Pot cookbook at Barnes and Noble three weeks ago and for a mere $9.98 my life has been changed. This book has become my best friend. Here are a few recipes that have been so, so easy and yummy:

Chicken and Dumplings: (Makes 4 servings)

2 cups of cooked chicken
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) cream of chicken soup
2 soup cans of water
4 teaspoons of all purpose flour
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (8 biscuits)

Combine all ingredients, except biscuits, in Crock Pot slow cooker. Cut biscuits into quarters and gently stir into mixture. Cover and cook on LOW 4 to 6 hours.

NOTE: chicken you put in the chicken and Dumplings recipe is COOKED chicken. I usually boil a bunch of chicken and freeze it in ziploc bags to have on hand when needed.

Campbell's Nacho Chicken and Rice Wraps: (Makes 10 Servings)

2 cans Campbell's Cheddar Cheese Soup
1 cup water
2 cups Pace Chunky Salsa or Picante Sauce
1 1/4 cups uncooked regular long-grain white rice (I used Minute Rice)
2 pounds bonesless UNCOOKED chicken breasts, cubed
10 flour tortillas

1. Mix soup, water, salsa, rice and chicken in the Crock Pot slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours or until done.
2. Spoon about 1 cup of rice mixture down center of each tortilla. Fold tortilla around filling.

By the way, the name of the Cookbook is: 3 books in 1 Rival Crock Pot: Slow Cooker Favorites, Winning Slow Cooker Recipes, Slow Cooker Recipes for All Occasions

I'm so excited about these recipes! Thanks for sharing them. We may try the chicken and dumplings this week! (I've never made any before - but biscuits in the crockpot - I think I can handle.) :-)
