Carnival of the Recipes - Crockpot Edition Yum!

I simply LOVE my crockpot. I don't know what I ever did without one, and I insist that anyone that doesn't' have one, go and get one! Right now - I'll wait.

Got one?


Is it nice and big? Does it have multiple heat settings? GOOD!

We're good to go.


Dawn's Too Lazy to Cook Chicken in a Crockpot Recipe :)

Now, one of my most favorite recipes for the crockpot I made up by accident - as usual, I'd realized that I had NOTHING in mind for dinner, so I looked in the freezer for inspiration. I had a package of frozen chicken thighs. Ok, that'll work.

So I tossed the 2-3 lb package of frozen chicken thighs into the crockpot, still frozen hard as a rock. I then sprinkled Lawry's garlic salt on both sides. I put the cover on and set it on low (or if it's near noon, I put it on high) and left it alone THE ENTIRE DAY.

No water, nothing.

Just chicken and garlic salt.

Around 4pm, I follow my nose and go check out the crockpot - omg it smells heavenly! There's now a whole bunch of juices in there that've come from the chicken and so I toss in approximately 1 cup of instant rice (or minute rice or whatever) and cover it again.

At 5pm,w hen we eat dinner, it's ready. It's fabulous. The meat falls off the bone, the rice tastes wonderful from the chicken drippings. It's just fab-u-lous!

So there's Dawn's too lazy to cook Chicken in a Crock pot Recipe :)

REALLY?! That's it? I haven't had a lot of luck with my Crock Pot, so I'm going to give this one a try. Please do pot roast next! I'm craving a delicate, fall-apart pot roast, and I can't seem to find a great recipe (no cream of mushroom soup, please!)

LOL... great blog. I can't wait to try this one.
