This is another place to get great recipes.
I've seen some great recipes here- take a look at these for ideas: http://www.mamapedia.com/search?query=crock+pot+recipes
I love my crock pot!
I have some picky kids and they love "Salsa Chicken". Just put 5 or 6 boneless/skinless chicken breasts (doesn't matter if they're frozen or not!) in with a jar of your favorite salsa. After about 4 hours or so, take a fork and shred it- it is very tender and is easy to break up. My kids eat it plain or on tortilla shells with refried beans and cheese. It's also pretty tasty on baked potatoes. Very easy and yummy!
Hope you like it!
I put this recipe in the crockpot before I left this a.m. It's meat and gravy...can go w/ mashed potatoes or noodles:
1 1/2 pounds round steak (I used 2 1/2)
medium onion, sliced in rings
1 can cream of mushroon soup
1 packet beef gravy mix
1 cup water
Cut the round steaks in smaller squared (I cut mine just in half). Place a layer of meat in the crock pot, place a layer of onions on top, then some pepper (I also used Worcestersire sauce.) Do another layer of meat then onion. Mix together the soups and water. Pour over the meat. Cook on low for 10 hours or on high for six. My boys love this.

I just go to her site, look up what type of meat I have on hand and pick one. So far I've tried six different ones and all have turned out wonderful! We have a 2.5 year old and a 1.5 year old and they both will eat anything I make from this! Gotta love that!
This isn't for one chicken dish, but I find it very helpful and time-saving. When chicken breasts are on a sale I buy a big package and put them in my crockpot with rotel tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro - really just whatever I want to throw in there. Let it cook until the chicken shreds apart - then I separate into bags and freeze to use later for tortilla soup, chicken spaghetti, enchiladas etc. You can also go non-spicy and cook the chicken with onion, celery, etc and then use in chicken & rice, chicken salad, etc.
Also another good recipe resource is SouthernLiving.com, go to their food & recipe section you can sort on just slow cooker recipes.
Good luck - I love using my crockpot too.
Easiest one is put chicken breasts in the crockpot and a jar of BBQ sauce, turn on high for 4 hours or low for 6 and have pulled chicken sandwiches.
A favorite in my house is a chiken al king kind of dish.
4 Chicken breast (you can use what ever part of the chicken you like)
2 Cans cream of chicken
1 can cream of mushroom
3 or 4 sliced thick potatoes
throw everything in the pot and turn it on med and leave it eight hours.
When I make this I but it in the pot before I leave for work and dinner is ready when we get home. Some times I throw some rolls in the oven.
I purchased this coobook online and LOVE it. Most recipes take 7 ingredients or less and are lowfat healthy recipes. I also have discovered the use of the crockpot liners, which make for easy clean up.
This is so easy and great!
Shredded Chicken Tacos:
4-6 chicken breasts
1 Can Rotel
1 pkg Taco Seasoning
1 Can Corn (drained)
1 Can Black Beans (Drained and rinsed)
1)Mix Rotel and Taco seasoning together in a bowl
2)Put everything together in the crockpot and cook 6-8 hrs. (Don't add additional water)
3)Pull fork through chicken to shred.
Serve with tortillas. Can also serve with lettuce, cheese sour cream, etc if desired.
I like to use boneless skinless chicken thighs and put in either bbq sauce or Indian sauce and cook on low until the chicken starts falling apart. Then I serve it over rice cooked in a rice cooker.
easy bbq chicken
1/2 cup chicken broth
as many breasts or pieces as the pot will hold (I salt and pepper them before I pour the sauce)
enough bbq sauce to cover the pieces.
Most of the time the chicken is so tender it comes out in pieces...
I usually add some celery and onion for flavor.
Allrecipes.com also has some easy crockpot ideas.
I have the greatest recipe for the crock-pot! Super easy too! I put several frozen boneless skinless chicken breast in the bottom of the crock-pot. Then I pour BBQ sauce on top. I then pick what veggie I want with it, corn on the cob or baked potatoes. I wrap the veggies in foil and place on top of the chicken. I cook all of this on low for 8 hours. You get BBQ chicken and wonderful corn or baked potatoes.
I found this site over the weekend http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/
So far I have made the spinach and salmon and the chicken enchilada chili and both recipes were great.
I got this from my MIL....slice a couple of onions into thick slices and layer at the bottom of the crock pot. I put about 4 chicken breasts on top of the onions. Salt & pepper, some onion powder. cook all day (8 hrs or so) and then discard the onions, shred the chicken. We put it on onion rolls with bbq sauce, pickles and fresh sliced onions. Usually have with beans and chips. Its always a hit here!
