    Creamy Crockpot Chicken

    Ingredients
    3 lbs chicken pieces
    1 (2/3 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix
    4 tablespoons melted butter (divided)
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 garlic clove, chopped
    1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
    8 ounces cream cheese
    1/2 cup chicken broth

    Directions
    Place chicken pieces in crock pot and sprinkle Italian seasoning over chicken. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons melted butter.

    Cook on low for 4 hours.

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a sauce pan and saute onion and garlic. Add Cream of Chicken Soup, cream cheese, and chicken broth. Stir until smooth.

    Add this mixture to crock pot and cook on low for an additional hour.


    Comments; I hate, hate Cream of anything soup, but I am now stuck with Cheerleading and Football 5 nights a week, so I have to save time. This recipe was so good and the kids kept asking for more. I was out of Chicken broth, so I use white wine. I have used this same recipe without the Italian seasoning and just using a nice shake of onion powder, garlic powder salt and pepper and some italian seasoning.

    Basic Beer Bread Mix:
    Ingredient
    all-purpose flour 3 cups
    granulated sugar 1 tbsp
    salt 1 tsp
    baking powder 1 tbps

    beer 1 1/2 cups 12 oz
    Optional glaze 1 egg & 2 tsp water, beaten

    Heat oven to 375F degrees. Combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick. Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan, brush with egg glaze if desired, and bake until golden brown and a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.

    Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Will keep for 1 to 2 days stored in a plastic bag or airtight container. May be frozen.

    Onion Rye or Un-Rye: Heat 2 Tablespoons olive oil in a medium skillet. Add 1 cup finely chopped onion and 1 Tablespoon caraway seeds. Cook at medium heat, stirring frequently, until onion is translucent and beginning to brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. (This step may be done ahead of time; let onion mixture sit at room temperature up to two hours or refrigerate.)

    If desired, replace the 3 cups of all-purpose flour with 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 cup rye flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. Stir onion mixture into batter along with 2 more Tablespoons of beer or water.


    Comments: Just way yummy. The kids liked the plain loaf and the grown ups loved the onion rye.

    Bobbie, I use this one, but my kids eat almost anything, but you could leave out what you don't like...

    Healthier Tater Tot Casserole
    1 pound extra-lean ground turkey
    1 medium onion, chopped
    2-3 garlic cloves, minced
    1 large red pepper, seeded and chopped
    3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
    3/4 cup sliced mushrooms(optional, cause Lumpy hates mushrooms)
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    2- 10 1/2 ounce cans low sodium cream of whatever soup
    1- 2 pound bag frozen tater tots
    1/4 flat leaf parsley, chopped
    1 1/2 tablespoons onion power
    1 tablespoon paprika
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet, cook onions in the olive oil until translucent. Add garlic, red pepper, mushrooms, and carrots, and cook until soft. Add in turkey, parsley, onion powder, and paprika, and brown until fully cooked. Placed cooked meat mixture in a 9 X 13 inch pan. In a separate bowl, combine tater tots and cream of mushroom soup. Top casserole with the soup mixture. If desired, sprinkle with excess parsley and paprika. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Serves 8-10.
