Default EASY slow cooker recipe

I got this one from my cousin:

2-3 chicken breasts
1 can black beans (You could try dry beans after soaking overnight)
1 cup of salsa
1 can corn--drained (optional since my three year old wants it separate)

If the chicken is frozen cook for about 4 hours on high, if not frozen cook around 2 to 3. I shredded the chicken once it was cooked and let it cook for another hour.

Serve with warm tortillas or over rice. YUM!!! I just tried it this week...puts those beans to good use! My three year old LOVED it.

Default Okay here is one of my favorite....

Stuffed Porkchops

Fill porkchops with a filling that has 1/2 stick butter, 1 egg, bread crumbs-- I use two slices of toast broken up, and 1 can corn.

Stuff the porkchops, place in crockpot, cover with either 1can Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken soup-- mixed with 1 to 1 1/2 Cups milk and pour over the porkchops. Cook on high for 4 or so hours or 6-8 hours on low.

Place over rice... add a vegetable and there is dinner.

Default Spicy Braised Peanut Chicken

Here's another chicken recipe I make alot. The ingredients might seem strange but it's REALLY yummy. It's a "North African" style recipe. And if you've been couponing for awhile it's almost all in your stockpile!

Spicy Braised Peanut Chicken
1 Tablespoon olive or vegetble oil
8 chicken thighs, skins removed *I prefer to use a few boneless, skinless breasts
1 large onion, chopped
2 cans (14.5 oz each) diced tomoatoes with green chilies, undrained (RoTel)
1 can (14.5 oz) crushed tomotaoes, undrained *I just use diced in sauce or even just diced tomatoes, whatever I have on hand
2 Tablespoons honey
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups hot cooked couscous *I just serve it with rice

Heat oil in 12 inch non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken in oil about 4 minutes, turning once, until brown.

Mix onion, diced and crushed tomoatoes, honey, cumin and cinnamon in 4-5qt slow cooker.Place chicken in slow cooker. Spoon tomato mixture over chicken.

Cover and cook on low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.

Stir in peanut butter until melted and well blended. Serve chicken and sauce over couscous. Serves 4

This is a REALLY easy recipe...

Chicken breasts...however many your family will eat
One cup of Yoshida's sauce
One can of pineapple...I usually do the rings because we don't like to eat the actual pineapple and we pick it out.

Put it all in the slow cooker and cook for about 4-5 hours.
When it's done, pour the chicken and juice over rice.

It's not necessarily a fancy recipe but it's quick and easy and my husband likes it...that's the most important!

Another great one is using cherry 7-up when cooking your ham. Just totally cover the ham with the cherry 7-up and cook for how long you need to.
