slow cooker recipes with 5 or less ingredients?Subscribe
ok I want to try this whole slow cooker thing since I HAVE ONE that I never use and am thinking hubby and son might actually like it!
however, I get intimidated with lists of a million ingredients... ideas on something i can make with 5 or less ingredients?
I need to use my slow cooker more-
here are 2 easy quick suggestions-
make a rotisserie style chicken-
Take 1 whole chicken
sprinkle with seasoning inside and out
(can use Lawry's Seasoned Salt, or get fancy with a combo of onion/garlic powders, salt and pepper and put a cut up lemon and onion inside the chicken cavity)
now ball up about 8 balls of tin foil to the size of golf balls and place in the bottom of the crock pot.
rest the chicken, breast side down on the tin foil balls, and set your crock pot for 6-8 hours on low.
I swear this is the easiest chicken EVER- it falls off the bone and tastes delish!!!!
(The tin foil balls keep it from cooking in its fat, you'll see...)
here is the other one
crock pot chicken taco filling
take 2 frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
place in crock pot with 1 packet of taco seasoning mix and 1 can of chicken broth
cook on low 4-6 hours
shred the chicken with a fork and serve with all the fixings for tacos, burritos, etc
to make BEEF taco meat, you can place an inexpensive beef roast in the crock pot with a jar of ANY salsa, cook on low for 6-8 hours, and shred the meat at the end.
I have a cookbook called Slow Cooker Recipes with 5 Ingredients (or less!)
Or at least the title is something like that. Although I once I found a recipe with 6 ingredients so the title is a lie!
Anyways, if you tell me something specific you're looking for, I can probably find a recipe for it.
OH OH i so want the vegitarian recipees! what is the book?
also - MsMD310 - i love the idea for the taco meat recipee! i can easily do that with 'fake' meat and i bet it would be YUMMY!!!
also thinking of trying pasta, why not? put like all the lasagna ingrediants in a slow cooker and see what happens LOL ok really thinking about buying stuffed shells and sauce and going that route... my cousins wife used to do this and it was pretty good! and eady... allll about the easy LOL
mmmm!!! I just tried my first recipe from my cookbook. It was awesome! It was a ziti casserole. Not 5 ingredients or less, but really really good. In a skillet, You sautee 1 minced onion until it softens, and then add two cloves of minced garlic until the garlic becomes fragrant. Then add that and a large can on crushed tomatoes, 1/2 cup of dry red wine, 1 cup of hot water, and 12 ounces of vegetarian burger crumbles. Stir it up, and cook on low for 3.5 hours. Then add 8 ounces of ziti (precooked) and cook another 20-30 minutes. Garnish with some chopped parsley and basil and sprinkle with Parmesan. It was a huge hit tonight. Not the easiest recipe from the book, but I wanted to make something pretty special tonight because we were having company (btw, they loved it and didn't even notice that it was vegetarian).
PS. Kat, the book is called "Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker"...Enjoy!
