Slooooow Cooker Recipes - Potsticker Soup

Hi all.

Anyone have any favorite slow cooker recipes to share? It's a great time saver for me, & making a big comeback. I got a little bored viewing the same old same old (i.e. roasts, etc.)...so I did a little experimenting. Here's what I came up with.

POTSTICKER SOUP
1 lg bag frozen potstickers (any flavor, found in frozen food section)
1 can chicken noodle soup
1 can chicken & rice soup
1 pkg Top Ramen chicken teriyaki
about 6 cups water (watch dish as you go along, add more water as needed)
2 chicken breast tenders

Break Ramen Noodles in half, place in cooker & sprinkle w seasoning packet. Add frozen potstickers, then soups, chicken tenders, & water. I cooked on Hi 4 hours, giving a stir to combine here & there.

Note: It turned out a little too soft. You might want to adjust cooking time. Next time I'd like to try adding some chopped green onions, ginger, maybe some sliced pork, etc. Play around with it & see what you think.

I just scoop it out with a big spoon & serve it straight out if the crock pot. The fudge sauce is at the bottom & I just scoop some of it out to put on top of each serving after I scoop out the cake.

I posted this in Cheese, Eggs, & Dairy in the Best Mac & Cheese thread & thought it deserved a place here too!

This is one of my favorite mac & cheese because I only have one oven & it helps when I have a lot to cook.

Crock Pot Mac & Cheese

1(8oz)box macaroni
1 stick butter or margarine
2 1/2C sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2C. milk
1 large can evaporated milk
salt & pepper to taste
2 eggs, beaten

Cook & drain macaroni. Put in crock pot; add butter & 2 cups cheese, stir. Combine milk, beaten eggs, evaporated milk, salt & pepper. Pour into crock pot & stir. Top with 1/2 cup cheese & cover. Cook 3 hours on low setting.

Crockpot Citrus Chicken:

marinade:

2 tbsp frozen oj
2 cup chicken stock
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup tomato paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 dash allspice

4 lb chicken, breasts and thighs
1/4 lb mushrooms, sliced
2 tbsp margarine or butter
11 oz (1 can) mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 of a medium-large bell pepper, sliced lengthwise
1/4 tsp ground ginger
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup cold milk
1/4 cup cold water

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 crockpot and add marinade
up to about an inch from the top of the container. Set the crockpot on
low and cover.

6 to 8 hours later, turn the crockpot 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 crockpot while stirring until the entire mixture thickens a bit.

Re-cover the crockpot and let simmer for 15 to 30 minutes until
serving. Serve with baby carrots and small new potatoes.
