a few slowcooker recipes...
      #1074843 - 11/17/09 07:40 PM (67.244.66.57)

chicken and bean chili, about 4 servings

8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
(2) 15.5oz can crushed tomatoes in puree
(2) 15oz navy beans, rinsed and drained
(2) 15oz black beans, rinsed and drained
8 oz tomato sauce
8 oz diced roasted chiles, drained
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
3 garlic, minced or more to taste
3 jalapenos, seeded and minced
4tbsp red wine
6tsp chili powder
pinch of oregano and ground cumin

rinse and dry chicken; cut into 2"pcs and sprinkle w/ s&p to taste. place in slow cooker and combine other ingredients. cover and cook on low for 7-9hrs. serve with any condiments you'd like. i topped it with some shredded pepper jack. no sour cream or crackers in the house otherwise i'm sure they'd be served on top.

the outcome... excellent. in fact, i overslept and the chili was on low for about 10hrs and still very good. i made extra to freeze.

jerked chicken drumsticks, serves 2

2 jalapenos, cut in half and seeded
5 scallions, cut into pcs
2tbsp cider vinegar
2tbsp brown sugar
1tbsp olive oil
1tbsp soy sauce
1 lime, juiced
3tsp jerk seasoning
3/4tsp salt
4-6 drumsticks
1 bell pepper, sliced

place all ingredients except chicken and bell pepper in a food processor and puree until smooth. place drumsticks in the slow cooker and coat each piece with seasoning paste. add the sliced bell pepper on top. cover and cook on low for 6-7hrs.

the outcome...



slow cooked pulled bbq chicken, serves 2

1 small white onion, chopped
2 garlic, minced
4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

for the bbq sauce:
1/2 cup ketchup
2tbsp cider vinegar
2tbsp light brown sugar
1tbsp olive oil
1 1/2tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2tsp chili powder
1/4tsp chipotle chile powder
1/4tsp salt

2 big buns or 4 small buns

sprinkle onion and garlic over bottom of the crock and arrange thighs on top. make the sauce and pour over the thighs. cover and cook on low for 7-8hrs, until chicken pulls apart easily. shred the chicken with forks.

the outcome... loved the simplicity and big flavor. forgot to take a photo though. sorry.

for a few years the slowcooker sat in the box all sealed up. finally took it out of the box about a year ago and am enjoying it. this weekend i went a little overboard and made all sorts of recipes. these were my favorites. only thing i would change, because i like heat, would be to bump up the peppers in the first two recipes.

Love your pix!
This is an oldie but goodie!
APRICOT CHICKEN

Ingredients:
6 frozen skinless, boneless chicken breasts (not thawed)
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1/2 cup Russian or French (ie: Catalina) salad dressing
1 cup apricot preserves or jam
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/8 tsp. pepper

Preparation:
In 3-4 quart slow cooker, arrange chicken pieces. Mix remaining ingredients in a medium bowl and pour over chicken. Stir to coat. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours until chicken is thoroughly cooked and tender.

If you like, you can thicken the mixture before serving. Combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water or chicken stock and mix until smooth. Add to the crockpot; turn to high for 10-15 minutes until sauce is thickened. Serve with hot cooked rice. Serves 6
I like mine topped with Chinese crunchy noodles. Yummmm!!

Actually, no, I just kind of throw in things, like a pork roast, potatoes, onions and carrots or beef roast and the same, ribs, etc..

Our family calls it the "Crack Pot"... cuz once you start using it... you just can't stop!

think i'll rename mine now because that sounds more appropriate. i had two crackpots going this weekend. aside from these recipes, i also made cauliflower soup, poached chicken, vegetable stock, meat sauce. i can't stop...

i prefer having homemade stock on hand also. well, i'm sure i'll be making more slowcooker recipes over the weekend. plan on having two going again because i get kind of lazy during the winter months, so i plan on making extra to load the freezer up. also have a potluck on monday, party to host on monday, and of course turkey day rolling around the corner. the slowcooker is a great sous chef. i'll post more recipes and pics.
