Crockpot French onion chicken & rice


French Onion Chicken & Rice:
One cup of Rice
One can of condensed French Onion soup
3/4 soup can full of water
Chicken pieces cut up, salt & peppered.

Cook on high for 8-9 hours in the crockpot.
You can also cook in the oven at 350 degrees, covered in foil for an hour – remove the foil and cook for 20-30 minutes longer to brown the chicken.

Update: Okay I made this and I have to say I was underwhelmed. It was bland. Absolutely no flavor. We added salt, seasoned pepper, etc. The rice was mushy and overcooked. The chicken would have been perfect if it’d had any flavor. One positive thing I can say is it was super easy.

If I make it again, I would definitely change things a little. Maybe cook the rice separately and then combine it with the cooked chicken and soup. Really regret doubling the recipe. 😕


London Broil


I found this recipe after buying a london broil on sale and having no clue how to fix it. I will let you know how it is after I fix it.
(Found on allrecipes.com)

2 pounds london broil
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix

Cut the meat if necessary to fit in the bottom of the slow cooker. Combine condensed soups in a bowl and pour over the meat. Sprinkle the dry onion soup mix over the top. Cook on low 8 ~ 10 hours.

Italian Pot Roast


This pot roast comes out so tender and flavorful!!!   You can also brown the pot roast after cutting it in half to ensure a pretty color and extra flavor.  Be sure to deglaze the pan with some water or beef broth to get all the yummy crunchies off the pan!

1 2.5 pound boneless round roast

1 medium onion, sliced

salt and pepper to taste

2 8 oz cans tomato sauce

1 pkg dry Italian dressing mix

Slice roast in half and place in the slow-cooker.  Add onion and remaining ingredients.  Cover and cook on high for 1 hour, then on low for 7 hours.  Slice meat to serve.

Crockpot Turkey Breast


This recipe is delicious!  The meat comes out moist and filled with TONS of flavor.  It’s very easy and all seasonings are to taste, so it’s very easy to customize it to your family’s tastes.

 1 onion

1 turkey breast

garlic powder

fresh ground black pepper

other seasoning (try Hidden Valley ranch dressing mix.  I usually use Mrs. Dash)

Slice onion and place on the bottom of the crockpot.  Remove skin from the turkey.  Season well with all seasonings (avoid salt; it will dry out the meat).  Cook on low for 8 hours.

Crockpot Chicken and Rice

Creamy rice and chicken.  Also good with pork chops
6-8 boneless chicken breasts

½ c flour

1 ½ t dry mustard

1 ½ t garlic powder

2 T oil

1 family size can chicken and rice soup


Dredge chicken in flour, salt, mustard, garlic powder.  Brown in oil.  Place browned chicken in crockpot.  Add soup and any left over flour mixture, and the pan drippings.  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
