Spicy Roast Chicken

  • 1 large whole chicken
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (you can cut this down if you don't care for the "heat")
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Combine all the spices and rub under the skin of the chicken. Rub a bit on the inside too, and any leftover on the skin.  Put it in the crockpot, cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Baked Beans

  • 1 lb. dry navy beans (I've also used black-eye peas or great northern beans)
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3/4 c. ketchup
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 3/4 - 1 c. water
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. molasses
  • 1 tsp. salt

Soak beans in water overnight in large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer until soft, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain and discard water. Mix together all ingredients in crock pot. Cover and cook on low 10 to 12 hours.

Note: I often soak the beans the day before, cook them and then cook in crock pot overnight.

Note: I sometimes add sliced hot dogs or ham to the mixture. When I do this I reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp.

  • 6 to 9 medium potatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 lb. ham, cut into slices or chunks
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Layer potatoes, ham, onion, and cheese in crockpot. Repeat. Top with cream of mushroom soup. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours until potatoes are tender.
NOTE: Watch your crock pot carefully! Mine will cook this recipe in less than 6 hours on low.

Shredded Chicken BBQ on buns
Bake 3 to 4 chicken breasts in chicken broth until done (I did this in the crock pot). Add enough BBQ sauce (I use the honey BBQ sauce recipe in the July 2009 post) to taste. Serve on hamburger buns with various choices of toppings: mustard, sliced onion, pickles, etc.

I personally found this a bit bland.  Feel free to adjust seasonings to taste.

Wild Rice & Beef Crock Pot Casserole

  • 1 c. uncooked wild rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 c. chopped celery
  • 1 c. chopped carrots
  • 2 4 oz. cans mushroom pieces, drained
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 beef bouillon cubes
  • 2 lb. boneless round steak (I found chuck steak was cheaper), cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 3 c. water

Place ingredients in crock pot in the order listed. Do not stir. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until rice is tender. Stir before serving.
