My fav thing to do is to put a small chicken in there and let it cook all day long it will fall right off the bones easy for about whatever you want to make!!!

My other fav is itallian beef, get a roast (cuck works best but rump would work also) then add 2 cans of onion beef broth and about 4-6 T of itallian sesioning simple and easy serve over french/itallian bread with chips or pickels! HTH

Crockpot Creamy Itl. Chicken

4 to 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
8 oz. bottle Italian dressing
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 c. chicken broth
8 oz. cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste

In crockpot combine breasts and Italian dressing. Cook on low for at least 6 hours. When chicken is tender, drain most of dressing and discard. Shred chicken and return to crockpot. Combine soup, both, cream cheese, salt and pepper. Pour mixtre of chicken and cook for one more hour. Serve over pasta or rice

Burrito Chicken and Beans

1/2 cup dry-packaged Navy beans or 1
can (15 ounces) Navy beans, rinsed, drained
1/2 cup dry-packaged Red beans or 1
can (15 ounces) Red beans, rinsed, drained
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2-3 teaspoons minced garlic
2-3 teaspoons minced gingerroot or 1-2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth, divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

4 cups cooked rice

Cover combined beans with 2 inches water in large saucepan and heat to boiling;
let boil,
uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and set aside for at least 1
hour and up to 4
hours. Drain soaking water and rinse.

Place beans, chicken, garlic, ginger, and 1 1/4 cups chicken broth in
slow cooker;
stir well. Cover and cook on low until beans are tender, 5 1/2 to 6 hours.

Turn slow cooker to high. Stir in combined cornstarch and remaining ½ cup
chicken broth; stir in
crushed red pepper. Cover and cook until thickened, about 30 minutes.

Serve over rice;
we usually stuff it in tortillas

NOTE: If using canned beans, omit Step 1 of recipe.

NOTE: Although B.E.A.N. recipes usually call for
a specific variety, any canned or dry-packaged
bean variety can be easily substituted for another.

Swiss Chicken
Season enough chicken breast to line bottom of crock. Use whatever seasonings your family likes. Layer swiss cheese over chicken. I usually go 2 or 3 layers of this. Dump two cans of cream of mushroom soup and spread over cheese. No milk, just soup. Cover soup with stove top stuffing-I think I use two packs. Turn on low 8 hours.
This is great with a salad! I suppose you can also adjust it for more organic ingredients-trader joe brands or similar.
