    Help with recipe

    Ok, if you know me at all, you know I do NOT like to be in my kitchen except to eat. But I've been using my crockpot and just love it. So my question is this: Does anyone have an easy crockpot recipe using chicken breasts?

    Thanks for your help!

    ~~~~~~~~~
    Salsa Chicken
    ~~~~~~~~~
    Set chicken breasts into crock.
    Can also add chopped/sliced/chunked -- onions, mushrooms, celery, peppers, etc. if you wish.
    Put salsa on top.
    If more chicken breasts do another layer of same.
    Put lid on crockpot.
    Forget and go and sew!!!

    At supper time,
    take lid off and sprinkle some feta on top of the chicken.
    Put lid back on as you do the final preparations to let the cheese melt a little.

    Delicious!!!!


    Variation .... Greek Chicken ... same as above but use antipasto.


    Serve with rice and steamed veggies ... and/or or a salad.

    Leftovers are great re-heated or added to salads.

    Absolutely!! And you don't need to put on a lot of salsa. I usually spread it on, kind of like icing the chicken!
    More is OK, but the chicken is more apt to fall apart ... more like chicken salsa soup!

    Instead of feta, I usually use fresh grated parmesan and keep the feta for the greek version.

    You can also bake it, in a flat pan.

    You can also use italian dressing along with garlic and onions.

    You might want to give boneless skinless chicken thighs in your recipes for the crock pot. Breasts tend to get overcooked IMHO.
    McCormick has a season packet for pulled pork, I use this with chicken thighs, shread and serve on buns, wonderful smoky flavor.

    The thighs can be a great $ $aver, if you don't care whether it's dark/light meat! And it doesn't matter whether with/without bone. It depends which I have, which I use for the same recipe.

    I don't find one or the other cooks any faster in the crock ... more so it's how long I leave it there! Breasts would take longer and less apt to be overcooked, because of the larger mass of meat.

    Cover chicken breast with cream of chicken soup and cream of mushroom soup. Add in about 1/4 cup parmesan cheese. Cover and cook

    Thanks for the idea ... Sounds delicious!! ... must try this soon. I think I'd "beef" up the soup with some extra mushrooms and celery.

    Do you use condensed soup? or ready-to-eat?
