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.
