    There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh, forget the bad, and focus on the good. So, love the people who treat you right. Think good thoughts for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING...

    Place a whole chicken in crockpot with nothing added. Place on low 6-8 hours or on high for much less
    & it wil turn out like the ones you buy at Costco. Forms lots of broth. Extremely tender.

    I love this one ... and have come to like it far more than the store bought Quick Chicks!

    When I do it, I set the chicken on top of an upside down bowl/dish to let the juices drain off, and keep the chicken from getting greasy. For a twist in flavour, you can sprinkle the top of the bird with your favourite spices/seasonings/herbs. Sometimes I pour BBQ Sauce overtop.


    Another favourite ...

    Salsa Chicken
    Layer chicken breasts (with bones or boneless) with Salsa.

    You can also add to the layers sliced/chopped peppers, celery, onions or mushrooms.
    Some of each or just one.

    At the very end, top with shredded cheddar, parmesan or mozzarella and put lid back on for a few minutes to let the cheese melt.


    For a Greek twist ...

    Antipasto Chicken
    Do the same as the Salsa Chicken, but instead use Antipasto.
    Top at end with feta cheese.

    Thank you Quilte. There is ALOT of days that I cant be on my feet or legs for very long to cook. I live with 2 of my daughters that are roommates and one works all day the other works till 1 or 2 in the morning. So I bought a crockpot today so that in the mornings before Im in too much pain I can toss stuff in the crocker so dinner will be done when one gets off work and before the other goes to work. Im willing to try other things besides chicken, it just happens I just bought chicken. So any other simple recipes would be appreciated.

    You're welcome!

    There are a LOT of great crockpot recipes ... just don't be afraid to try them.

    When crocks first came out 40 yrs ago (or so), they talked about letting it cook all day. To be honest, I find very few of the recipes need to be cooked that long. And many, if they are, are just outright ruined. So being new to crockpot cooking, I just want to forewarn you that not all will need that all day cooking.

    Crocks make the BEST soups and stews, IMHO ... so try those out.
    I've even made lasagna in mine.

    Hopefully yours has a cookbook with it, and you can use that for starters.

    Good Luck!!!

    I just bought a crockpot a week ago. Had one many years ago and didn't use it very much, so go rid of it because I did not want to put meals together before I left for work. (I am not a morning person at all!) Anyway, read on here about using it to make apple butter and it sounded like a good idea. And my first try was minestrone soup which turned out great - it was a recipe that came with the machine. It was done in 7 - 8 hours. I really like to use my pressure cooker for meat - but will more than likely give it a try for chicken too. It is nice to just throw it all in and leave it.

    Years ago I remember using it to make shredded beef for burritos and tacos - it was so tender and juicy, no reason you couldn't do it with chicken too. I get the packets already prepared but no reason you couldn't use your own spices.

    Here is one that is a favourite:
    Cola Chicken Recipe

    This Cola Chicken recipe contains 286 calories and 2 grams of fat per serving.
    What You Need
    • 1 cup cola (not diet)
    • 1 cup ketchup
    • 1 onion, sliced
    • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast

    What To Do
    1. Wash and pat dry chicken. Salt and pepper to taste.

    2. Place chicken into crockpot with onion slices on top.

    3. Add cola and ketchup.

    4. Cover; cook on low 6-8 hours.

    (I usually cut up a small whole chicken, also removing the skin.)

    I use my crockpot a lot. QuiltE is so right, though, the new crockpots work at a higher temp and you can really ruin something by overcooking.

    Chicken is probably my favorite thing to do. Whole chicken with nothing added as previously mentioned. Chicken parts with barbeque sauce makes great pulled chicken sandwiches. You can also do that with pork loin or shoulder (your choice).

    I find a lot of recipes at allrecipes.com and a great thing about that site is the reader reviews. Lots of people will mention adjustments they made to the basic recipe and I find that helpful. Here's a link to their crockpot section: http://allrecipes.com/Recipes/Everyd...r/?src=mer1231

    One other thing. If you are having difficulty staying on your feet (I have that problem, too) I often break up the task. I might do part of the prep the night before, stick it in the fridge and then finish it off in the morning when I put it in the crock. If you google, you will also find ideas for creating crock ready meals that can be frozen - just thaw overnight and put in the crockpot the next morning. I do that a lot because I'm cooking just for me and I find I can split a crockpot recipe into 2 or 3 freezer bags, using one right away and the others a week or so later.
