In my house crock pot cooking isn’t just for fall and winter months, it’s actually more convenient and a real time saver in the warmer months. After work the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven or stove especially when it’s hot like it was yesterday. I would prefer to walk into the house to a fully prepared meal smelling good! Using the crock pot gives me more time to sit on the “back 40” or take a walk around the neighborhood.
These were the ingredients for Monday night’s dinner.
1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables 2-3 chicken breasts 1 can cream of mushroom soup 1 can of cream of chicken soup 1 jar of mushrooms Pam Cooking Spray
You can use any cream soups
Spray Crock Pot with Pam or any cooking spray Put in frozen veggies Top with chicken breasts or thighs I cut up an onion and added the mushrooms
You can use dried onions if you don’t have fresh
Sprinkled a dash of seasoning and dried thyme Covered chicken & mushrooms with soups Cooked on low for 7 hours If desired, add a cup of uncooked white/brown rice when you get home
Poured in a cup of long grain rice
Turned off crock pot, stirred in rice, recovered and let sit for 30 mins while I changed my clothes
