  • I did this just yesterday. Cut a few potatoes in half, cut some carrots in big chunks, quarter an onion, put all the veggies in the crockpot and then place chicken pieces on top. Pour just enough itailian salad dressing on the chicken to cover. The itailian dressing will give everything a slight tangy flavor - be careful not to use too much. Now let the crock pot do the rest. Once it's cooked the chicken will fall of the bone.
    Every time I make this everyone raves about it. I call it one of my comfort food meals.

  • That sounds really nice (above chili recipe)
    Here is my creation for crock pots......... Ham off bone, or on, or 2 ham steaks cubed up. 3 med onions chopped, 5 or 6 medium potatoes,(quartered)..... 5 or so carrots cut up, and I add saurkraut from the can or pkg. It's a nice ham cabbage meal that E>Z Smoked ham steaks work terrific with this, and for flavor the kraut adds a tang. Salt and pepper to taste; other spice of your choosing (maybe Rosemary or fennel)

  • In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, cumin seeds, oregano, chili powder, salt and peppercorns and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Transfer mixture to slow cooker stoneware. Add beans and stock and stir to combine.
    Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours, until hot and bubbling.
    Stir in cauliflower, jalapeno pepper, green pepper, Monterey jack cheese, and cream cheese and chilies, if using. Cover and cook on high for 25 to 30 minutes, until the green peppers are softened and cauliflower is heated through. Ladle into bowls and garnish as desired with chopped green onions and cilantro.
    If you prefer thicker chili, mash some or all of the beans or puree in a food processor before adding to the recipe.
