Poultry

ALL DAY CHICKEN
4 pound Chicken, breasts and thighs
1/4 pound Mushrooms, sliced
2 tablespoons Margarine or butter
11 ounce (1 can) mandarin orange sections, drained
1/2 of a medium large bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
1/4 teaspoon Ground ginger
3 tablespoons Cornstarch
1/4 cup Cold milk
1/4 cup Cold water
Marinade: The night before you plan on slow cooking your dinner, mix together the marinade ingredients in a large, closable container large enough to also hold the chicken pieces. When marinade is thoroughly mixed, add the chicken, close container and refrigerate until morning. In the morning place the chicken in the slow cooker and add marinade up to about an inch from the top of the container. Set the cooker on low and cover. 6 to 8 hours later, turn the cooker to high. About an hour later, saute the sliced mushrooms in the margarine or butter. Then add the mushrooms (with pan juices), mandarin sections, green pepper and ginger into the slow cooker and stir thoroughly. Mix together the cornstarch, milk and cold water, then gradually add into the slow cooker while stirring until the entire mixture thickens a bit. Re-cover the slow cooker and let simmer for 15 to 30 minutes until serving. Serve with baby carrots and small new potatoes.

ALOHA CHICKEN

Put 2 handfuls of bean sprouts or 1 can, or 1 can Chinese vegetables in crock pot and mix. When rice is cooked, serve chicken over rice. Chicken will be so tender it will literally fall off the bones. The chicken is then easily deboned, and everything can be mixed together, chow mein and rice, or served over the rice.

CHICKEN CORDON BLUE
Pound out chicken breasts and in the middle put Swiss cheese and a slice of ham. Put in crockpot and cover with a can of cr. of mushroom soup. Cook on low until chicken is not pink anymore. Put in crockpot like a triangle /_\

CHICKEN COUNTRY CAPTAIN
8 pieces of chicken (whatever you like) -
1 1/2 green peppers, finely chopped
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1 garlic clove (I used garlic powder equivalent)
1/4 c. parsley (I used dried, but the flavor would probably be better with fresh)
2 cans tomatoes (I used 1 28oz can)
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt (I omitted)
1/4 t. thyme
1/2 t. curry powder
shake of cayenne (to taste)
1/2 lb mushrooms browned in butter
1/2 c. currants (I used raisins)
1/4 lb. blanched almonds
The original directions call for rolling the chicken in flour mixed w/paprika, then browning. I did do that this time, but probably won't do it next time. Mix sauce ingredients except for currants and almonds. Place chicken on bottom of crock pot and cover with sauce. (You could do some chicken, some sauce, then some more chicken and more sauce if you have a lot of chicken!) Cook on low roughly 8 hours. (Original recipe cooked the sauce in a skillet, then put chicken covered with sauce into the oven to bake for an hour.) Add currants (or raisins) in last 30-60 minutes of cooking (they could probably go in at the beginning). Serve over rice. Top with (warmed, toasted) almonds when serving. I have a "quick" microwave recipe for Chicken Country Captain which uses tomato soup instead of the tomatoes. I have started with soup before and added the other seasonings as above and cooked in the microwave.

CHICKEN PARISIENNE
6 medium chicken breasts
salt and pepper
paprika
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 can Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup flour
Lightly sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika; place in crockpot. Mix wine, soup, and mushrooms until well combined; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours. Mix sour cream and flour; pour over chicken. Remove chicken and stir in sour cream mixture; cook an additional 30 minutes. Serve over rice or noodles.

CHICKEN PICANTE
Place the chicken parts (I used thighs @ 69c/lb.) in the pot, dump in a jar of salsa and cook all day on low (I cooked about 12 hours). It's so delicious! I'll serve it over pasta!

CHICKEN STUFFING CASSEROLE
4-6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
1 small box Stove Top Stuffing for chicken
1 (10oz.) pkg. frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1 can broccoli with cheese soup
1/2 cup chicken broth
Lightly butter a 3 1/2qt. crockpot and place chicken in the bottom. Mix together the remaining ingredients, and place on top of chicken. Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours.

CHICKEN TACOS
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 packet taco seasoning
1 c. chicken broth
Combine in crock; cook 6-8 hours on low. Removed breasts from crock and fork-shred. Spoon a bit of the juice over it if desired. Serve on warmed tortillas with cheese, salsa, sour cream, black olives -- anything your taco heart desires! I've also been known to spoon some leftover brown rice into the meat after cooking. This freezes VERY WELL. I make a triple batch and then I don't even have to crock...just thaw and warm. Also works for beef, with either ground or chuck roast (for shredded beef). Use beef broth if doing a beef recipe.

CHICKEN WITH DRIED BEEF
1 package dried beef -- rinse and pat dry
8 boned and skinned chicken breast halves
8 slices bacon
1/4 cup sour cream -- not fat free
1/4 cup flour
1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1/4 cup burgundy -- optional
On bottom of greased crockpot, arrange dried beef. Wrap each piece of chicken with a strip of bacon and lay on top of dried beef. In small bowl, blend sour cream and flour; add soup and wine, mix thoroughly. Pour over chicken mixture. Cover and cook 8 - 10 hours on low (or 3 - 5 hours on high). Serve with baked potatoes, green beans and a salad. May also be served over hot buttered noodles or rice.

CHICKEN WITH LEEKS AND POTATOES
5 medium potatoes, sliced
1 medium onion or 1 leek, sliced
chicken parts...whichever you prefer
1 pkg leek soup mix
1/2 cup water
salt, pepper, paprika
Place potatoes in bottom of crockpot. Top with onion or leek slices, then chicken parts. Mix soup mix with water and pour over. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and paprika to add color. Cook on low 6-8 hours.

CHINESE CASHEW TUNA (OR CHICKEN) DINNER
1 can drained tuna or 1 C. cooked diced chicken -- (7 oz.)
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
3 tablespoons Butter or margarine
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup -- (cream of celery-- gives nice change)
1 can drained bean sprouts -- (16oz.)
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup cashew nuts -- (have a friend who-- uses peanuts)
Chow mein noodles
Combine all ingredients. except noodles in crock pot. Stir well, and cook for 5 to 9 hours on low. Serve over chow mein noodles (or rice)

CHOP SUEY
½ # lean pork cubed
½ # beef for stew cubed
1 large onion chopped
1-cup celery cut diagonally
1 can water chestnuts, save liquid
1 # fresh bean sprouts or 2 cans
1 can bamboo shoots
1 large can mushrooms of equal amount of fresh
½ cup soy sauce (Kikoman)
½ cup of chicken stock or bouillon
1 2 TBS. Corn starch
Place meats, celery, onion, chicken stock, mushrooms, soy sauce and water chestnuts and it's liquid into CP. I prefer fresh bean sprouts because we have a good supplier. They will cook quickly so can be added later depending on degree of doneness. Mix cornstarch in a small amount of water and stir into the sauce and continue stirring until thickened. This recipe is easily altered to suit your taste. Low Sodium soy sauce works well too. Canned bean sprouts are already cooked when you open the can so they could go in near the end. If you like a rich thick sauce remove liquid from pot and thicken on stove top. Chicken and shrimp are good interchangeable. You're the boss. Serve with rice, lo mein noodles, chow mein noodles, and rice noodles.

Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or on low for 5 to 6 hours or until chicken is tender, but not falling off bone, basting once if time allows. With a slotted spoon, remove chicken and vegetables to a serving platter. Cover with foil and keep warm. In a small saucepan, stir evaporated milk and cornstarch until smooth. Gradually stir in 2 cups of the cooking liquid. Stirring over medium heat, bring to a boil and boil for 1 to 2 minutes or until thickened.

Variations: you can add wine to the cranberry/onion soup mix mixture, or apple or orange juice works, too. This recipe also works well with pork loin chops, chicken, and pork loin.

CURRIED CHICKEN
1 2-1/2 to 3-1/2-pound chicken fryer cut up
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 clove garlic crushed
1 tablespoon melted butter

1 29-ounce can cling peach halves
1/2 cup pitted prunes
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons cold water

Pour curry sauce over chicken. Cover pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Remove chicken from pot. Turn control to high. Stir in prunes. Dissolve cornstarch in water: stir into sauce in pot. Cover and cook on high for 10-15 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add peaches. Serve chicken with sauce. Peanuts, coconut and chutney are ideal accompaniments to this dish. Makes 4-5 servings.

EASY CHICKEN & STUFFING
Prepare a packaged stuffing mix as indicated on package. Layer the stuffing on bottom of the crockpot. Please 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts on top. They can overlap some, but try to arrange it with as little overlap as possible, even if you have to squash them in. On top of chicken, pour one can of cream of chicken soup. Or you can use mushroom or celery. Don't add water, milk, etc. Add 1 can of sliced mushrooms. Stir them around so they are covered with soup. Turn crockpot on low and leave to cook for several hours. Check periodically to make sure soup hasn't dried up. (It never has for me.) Add a little chicken gravy if it has dried up. But remember, there's a lot of moisture below the chicken from the stuffing. I usually cook this recipe on high for 3-4 hours. You may have to adjust cooking time and moisture content to your liking. To serve, remove chicken. Scoop some stuffing and sauce onto a dinner plate and place the piece of chicken on top of it. Be aware, the stuffing will be mushy, but it is DELICIOUS!

Dip each piece into the orange juice to coat completely. Place in crockpot. Pour the remaining orange juice mixture over the chicken. 2. Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours, or cook on high for 4 hours if you wish. Precise cooking time is not important in crockpot cooking. 3. When chicken is done, remove to serving platter.

2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 bottle Seven Seas Robusto Italian dressing
1 lb. bag egg noodles

ROSEMARY LEMON CHICKEN
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 large lemon (or 1/2 cup lemon juice)
2 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp. Rosemary Leaves, chopped (I intend to use dried type)
1 cup water
Prepare the marinade by mixing together all the ingredients except for the chicken. Add lemon juice (or squeeze lemons till you have about 1/2 cup of liquid) to add. Marinade chicken for 1/2 hour at least or overnight if possible. (not sure if it would need to be marinated if it's going to be sitting in the crock pot all day in the liquid). Cover chicken and bake in the oven at 375 degrees for about an hour. I don't have my cooking time conversion chart handy that was posted a while back here, I would guess 3-4 hours in the CP would do it, although I plan to toss it in the morning and let it cook all day---I LOVE the chicken when it is super tender. The recipe says this is great served over rice. It also says that a salad dressing could be added to the marinade to change the flavor if desired.

SANTA FE CHICKEN

Cover and cook on the high heat setting 2.5-3 hours, or until the chicken is tender and white throughout; do not overcook or the chicken will toughen. Remove the chicken and cut into bite sized pieces. Add back to the slow cooker. Add the cream cheese (cut into cubes to melt faster), and turn slow cooker to high heat. Heat until cream cheese melts and blends into sauce. Serve over rice. Top with shredded cheese.
