I just saw a tweet come through from a busy mom asking for an easy dinner to make with 6 chicken breasts in her fridge. I instantly thought of this recipe that I make when I’m FORCED to have to cook something (interpretation: Ron is out of town and we are low on money for pizza). And I really must add here that I think it is so funny that I am sharing recipes on my blog this week. ME – the one who HATES to cook – NEVER has to cook because I have a husband who enjoys it (foreign idea to me) and AVOIDS cooking at all costs. Yet I am the one who instantly popped up with “I have the perfect recipe for that” right off the bat. (It’s ok – this time I’m laughing along with you….continue…..)
This is a recipe I picked up about 4 years or so ago in a crockpot cookbook. I adapt it depending on what I have. I’ll list the basics and then list some of the things I add if I have them. OH and I’m sure it has a name but I call it Chicken Whatever in the Crockpot because it’s CHICKEN cooked in the CROCKPOT with WHATEVER I find on hand. It’s not rocket science, people!
Chicken Whatever in the Crockpot
Chicken breasts (ever how many you have or want – we usually eat about 1 1/2 per person here so I figure it that way – with a calculator of course.)
Can or Two of Cream of Whatever soup (Chicken, celery, mushrooms…you get the idea)
1/2 cup of sour cream
salt, pepper and paprika to taste
Spray your crockpot – put the chicken in the bottom and then pour the rest of everything on top. YOu can mix it if you want but I don’t because that’s just dirtying another dish. I dump it all in and spread it over the chicken. Once it starts cooking it will blend easily.
I have added corn, peas, mixed veggies before.
Cook it on low for 6 hours. Serve it over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.
WHATEVER WHATEVER WHATEVER…..
