Here's one of our favorites! Inspired by a recipe found here a long time ago. So sorry--I've lost track of the person who originally posted.

Chicken with Peppers

3-4 T. of chopped garlic from a jar
3 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, salted and peppered
2 bell peppers, sliced thick
10 oz can Rotel tomatoes, original version
1/2 of a big can of diced tomatoes with juice
1 little tiny can of chopped green chiles with juice
1 T lime juice

Grease up your crockpot. Layer chicken breasts in the pot with onions and peppers. Stir together remaining ingredients and pour into the crockpot. Cook on low heat, 4-6 areas. (Cooking time varies so much, folks! Check often the first time you make it. I tend to double this and cook for 8 hours on low. My crockpot is one of those oval gigantic deals.) Also works to bake in a 250 degree oven in a covered casserole dish for 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 hours, depending on thickness of chicken thighs. Great over caulirice, miracle rice, zoodles. . . or even just straight up. Freezes very well, too.

Italian Sausage and Peppers

I get a package of frozen italian sausage, like 5 links, and the 3 tri-color peppers from Aldi.
Thaw the sausage overnight. Cut the peppers into large chunks and layer on the bottom of the crock pot. Slice the sausage into chunks and place over the pepper pieces. That's it, no liquid needed. Heat on low 6 hours or so. I've been known to squeeze the italian sausage out of the casing in chunks, since I'm not a big casing fan. Easy and tasty meal.

I wont even go further.....:rofl:

misty1028 11-22-2013 04:26 AM

Crock pot liners, never used them but sure going to get some. Can you use them for everything you make in crock. Like the thought of not having to soak mine.

I have never had anything that didn't work in a liner......a little tricky to get bottom soup leftovers out once in awhile, but no comparison to cleaning a crock pot:D

I just have to remember to use them........but winter, with new office, we are planning crock meals. New building has small kitchen area. All of us got tired of buying food last year in tax season. Only 4 places in town to eat, and gets old in a hurry!!!! (Also, DH has to find food now that Mom isn't well enough to cook for entire family....so have to find way to add him into noon office lunch:eek:)

So I will be checking here, and adding recipes as I find things that pass office-test.

misty1028 11-22-2013 02:12 PM

Definately going to buy the liners.

Karen I love to make crockpot meals all winter. Nice idea making meals at the office, alot healthier and cheaper.

Just seen this recipe on Lindas site and going to make it tomorrow it looks really good.

CROCKPOT CHEESECAKE
 
I've made this 4 times now and it never disappoints.

CROCKPOT CHEESECAKE

PECAN CRUST:
1 c. finely chopped pecans
2 tbs. granulated erythritol
3 tbs. melted butter
FILLING:
16 oz. softened cream cheese
1 c. powdered erythritol (used food processor to powder it)
2 large eggs (I had extra large)
1/4 c. heavy cream
2 tsp. coconut flour (oops I think I did 2 tbs.)
1 tsp. vanilla extract (I did two)

Combine chopped pecans, sugar sub and butter.
Press into the base of the cheesecake dish.
In separate bowl, cream cheese, powdered erythritol, eggs, heavy cream,(I used food processor),coconut flour and vanilla extract.
Process until smooth. Pour on top of nut crust.
Place in crockpot containing 1 c. water. Cover and turn to
high for 2-3 hours. When done the edges are no longer shiny
and cake has set. Let it cool inside the crockpot for one
hour. Then transfer to fridge for approximately 2 hours or
until very cold.

Sweet Endings. Page 271 Volume 2
Low Carbing Among Friends

Crockpot Cheesecake hit the spot. The minute that I read
the title, I knew I had to try it. It is summer, guests were coming
and the oven was not something that was going to happen.
The crust is great and I used my old *Corning ware pan and it fit
nicely into the crockpot. It's about 7.5" in circumference and 3" high.
Followed the recipe exactly. Let it cook on high for 3 hours.
Let it stand in the pan one more hour and then off to the fridge
to cool. When it was time to serve, I went around the edges very
well with my spatula, lifting gently at the bottom. Turned it out
onto a plate and then turned it back so crust side down, onto another plate
Voila it was beautiful. No cracks and was creamy with a
yummy crust. I made a simple strawberry cooked compote as
topping. I will definitely make this again and again.

*Corning ware is micro,oven, dishwasher safe with lid.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN BURRITOS
 
Now that the days are getting longer, and the weather's turning nice,
who wants to come in and cook dinner? Here's a family-pleasing meal from
200 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes ( 200 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes: Healthy Dinners That Are Ready When You Are!: Dana Carpender: 0080665307621: Amazon.com: Books ) so you can
go for a walk before the sun goes down...Dana Carpender

Chicken Burritos

2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 large jalapeno, minced (or canned)
12 low carb tortillas
1 cup shredded lettuce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2/3 cup light sour cream
3/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, optional

Plunk your boneless, skinless thighs in the slow cooker. Mix the garlic,
chili powder, olive oil, lime juice, salt, and minced jalapeno together.
Pour over the thighs, and stir to coat. Cover pot, set to low, and cook
for 10 hours, or cook on high for 5 hours.

When time's up, simply stir with a fork to reduce your chicken to a big
pot of tasty chicken shreds! Now, fill each tortilla with 1/3 cup
chicken, top with lettuce, cheese, 1 tablespoon sour cream, a generous
tablespoon salsa, and a sprinkling of cilantro. Wrap and devour!

This is a great meal for a family that has some low carbers and some
non-low carbers, just give them regular or (preferably) whole wheat
flour tortillas. The chicken keeps well in the fridge, and reheats
quickly in the microwave for a fast snack! (45 seconds on 70% power is
about right for a 1/3 cup serving.)

While we're on the subject, does someone have a recommendation for a good crockpot? Don't need fancy settings/timers, just a good, durable workhorse.

Rival has always done well for me........but not fancy.

misty1028 11-23-2013 09:11 AM

I have crockpots in all sizes and I use Rival too. They work great without costing alot.

Barb tks for the recipes. I have the chicken burritos recipe in the crock right now. Double the recipe so I can bring it down to the fire department. Of course I will be eating one myself.

I would have to scale it down. No one else at my house will eat mushrooms or spinach cooked.
But it does sound good. How was it?

Walmart has some decent ones from $15-$20 right now. Hamilton Beach is the main brand I noticed. I have used one from there for 10 years and it still works good. I had ones before, but I ended up dropping the crock or breaking the lid.

Deb 11-24-2013 12:29 PM

I have had expensive crocks and cheap ones and never really noticed much of a difference:dunno::confused:
