QOTD Friday

Do you have a crockpot? Do you use it? What's your favorite meal to prepare in it?

YES! My crockpot is my favorite way of cooking! I have a really yummy Chicken Tortilla soup recipe that I love cooking Smile I will have to try to remember to grab the recipe and share it with you.....Think Taco Soup, but with Chicken and way way way yummier. And EASY all you have to do is cut up fresh or frozen chicken into chunks, dump everything else in there, and let it cook all day

Yes yes yes!! I LOVE it and use it ALL the time. My favorite recipie is probably for a pot roast. I toss the roast in flour and garlic powder then sear the sides in a pan with melted butter put it in the crock pot. Mix together 1 pkg onion soup mix and 1 can cream of mushroom soup and poor over it. Let it go all day and 1-2 hours before it's done add carrots and potatoes. Smile

I've totally made this before. it's super yummy with cheese and sour cream on top and chips to dip in it!

Love love love my slow cooker! I use it all the time. My favourite is doing a turkey in one. It actually makes a tender, juicy, fall of the bone turkey. Smile

Do share! How the heck do you fit a turkey in your crockpot (what size?) and what do you need to do to it????

I just made stock from chicken leftovers yesterday!
I also recently found a recipe for cooking a whole chicken in one that I'm going to try maybe next week. Probably similar to the turkey??

I have one. I love makign spaghetti sauce in it, imagine coming home after work to the house filled with that yummy smell. I also did a corned beef in there last week, it just fell apart it was so tender.

Slow Cooker Turkey

I have a 6.5 qt slow cooker and can fit an 8 lbs stuffed bird. I usually stuff with vegetables (never tried with bread stuffing). I will try to find a link but for now, this is what I do:

Place stuffed bird in slow cooker with chicken broth (usually use about 1 cup I think)
Oil and season bird
Cook on HIGH for 6-8 hours
Take out and place in a roasting pan/cake pan and BROIL for 20-30 minutes (depending on your crispiness liking)

It will pull apart of the bone and have the crispy, roasting skin. Smile

Here's the link I found when I first did this. I love doing turkey this way - it really does make a juicy turkey. The link doesn't add the broiling at the end but I really suggest it (especially if you like crispy skin like me).

I have a crockpot and I love it!! I wish I'd use it more often though...I like to put it a whole fryer chicken with carrots, onions, and potatoes. I add two cans of chicken broth and sprinkle some basil. I let it cook on low for 8-10 hours and it's delicious!!
