I Love My Crock Pot!
I am convinced that you could put just about anything into a crock pot and it would come out tasting delicious! And I am also convinced that though crock pot meals taste delicious, they don't usually look very appealing. My husband has told me many times that the things I cook don't always look good, but they always taste good. And it's true. I am blaming part of that on my love of my crock pot. Most of the recipes I go back to time after time are crock pot recipes. It is just so convenient to put a few ingredients into a pot and go back a couple hours later to have a delicious dish.
I have two crock pots. One that is a normal 4 quart size and one miniature crock pot that is meant for dips, but I actually use the smaller one more frequently! With just my husband and I, the mini crock pot is usually all we need. I will use the larger one for big batches of things, but if I am just making a normal dinner, I use the mini crock pot. The only downfall is that it only has one heat setting.
I discovered the recipe below on a blog several months ago. It is easy and very tasty. You can put it over rice or put it on a roll as a sandwich--both are good. There is no way you can screw this one up!
Versatile Crock Pot Chicken
1-2 pounds chicken
3/4 a bottle of barbecue sauce
1/2 cup salsa (I usually add about 1 cup)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 small chopped onion
Combine all ingredients in crock pot on low for 4 hours (I usually cook it all day on low) or until chicken can be shredded. Serve over rice or on your favorite rolls. Top with cheese if desired.
