Slow Cooker Chicken with Rice Pork Chops

This recipe easy Slow Cooker pork chop recipe sent in by Bonnie was her grandmother’s recipe. Barbara wrote in the email about the recipe, “. . .My grandmother taught me (this recipe) years ago before she passed when I was a young mom a tight budget. She called it ‘Chicken-licking Good Pork Chops’ and this recipe is now part of our fall/winter rotation of meals. .  .”

I love that this simple pork chop recipe was Bonnie’s grandma’s recipe and that she passed it along to her. Some of my favorite recipes have come from my Grandma, too. This recipe is so easy, the ingredients are simple and it really was “Chicken-licking good!” My kids and my husband raved about this easy pork chop recipe, which we ended up serving over a bed of white rice.

INGREDIENTS

1 package of boneless pork chops, about 2-3 pounds

1/2 cup flour

1 tsp garlic powder

salt/pepper to taste

2 Tablespoons cooking oil

1 can of Campbell’s condensed chicken with rice soup
If you want more “gravy” when you serve it – I would add two cans of soup. 

Optional: Sliced carrots

Pork-Chops-Chicken-Rice-Crockpot

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Mix flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper and spread it out on a plate.

2.) Dredge pork chops in the mixture, coating both sides

3.) Head cooking oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, cook floured pork chops on both sides just long enough to brown, but not enough to cook through.

4.) Place pork chops in the bottom of the slow cooker, evenly spaced out. Pour the can of Campbell’s condensed chicken with rice soup over the top. If you have sliced carrots or baby carrots, toss in at this time.

5.) Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.

6.) Serve pork chops over hot rice or even mashed potatoes. Pairs nicely with a green salad and crusty bread.

Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili

Crockpot-Pumpkin-Turkey-Chili

Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili

This Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili recipe is amazing! I admit, I was a little leery when I read that it had pumpkin puree in it. I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin (don’t shoot me!) – but I was told it wouldn’t have an overwhelming pumpkin flavor – so I went for it, and I’m so glad I did. It’s a gorgeous, bright chili that feels like you’re serving up a bowll full of fall. And the pumpkin adds a creaminess that I haven’t found with other chili recipes. Not to mention the added nutrients from the pumpkin puree.

I used my homemade pumpkin puree that was super easy to make.

INGREDIENTS

2 pounds of ground turkey

1/2 tsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon, chili powder

2 bay leaves

2 teaspoon, cumin

1 teaspoon, oregano

2 cans white northern beans or navy beans (15 oz), rinsed and drained

2 cups chicken broth

15 oz pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin filling)
Make your own with a $0.99 Sugar Pumpkin – here’s my tutorial for homemade pumpkin puree. I actually threw my into the crockpot frozen, since I had frozen the puree in 1 cup increments.

4.0 oz – 4.5 oz canned chopped green chili

salt and pepper to taste

Optional garnishes: chopped cilantro, chives, sour cream, avocados, chips

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Heat a large saute pan over high heat and lightly spray with oil. Add ground turkey and cook, at least five minutes, until lightly browned.

2.) Add cooked turkey to slow cooker

3.) Add all the other ingredients to the slow cooker.

4.) Cover and cook on high for four (4) hours or low for eight (8) hours

5.) Remove bay leaves, adjust seasoning to taste and serve!

Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup

Have you ever had a Twice Baked Potato? Well this Slow Cooker Baked Potato Soup is like having a bowl full of the creamy inside of a twice baked potato. It’s delicious, incredibly filling and very frugal to make. Oh and easy, too.

INGREDIENTS

3 1/2 pounds of potatoes, peeled and cut into 3/4 inch pieces – I probably used more like 4 pounds

1 red pepper, seeded and chopped – I left this out to avoid my kids complaining

1 package (10 oz) of frozen chopped broccoli

4 cups of low sodium chicken stock – I used my slow cooker chicken broth from earlier in the week.

1/3 cup of half and half

1/3 cup of sour cream (plus extra for garnish)

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chops

Slow Cooker Ranch Pork Chop Recipe

Pork chops are a really affordable meat option, often going for as low as $1.49/lb  – but they can easily taste too dry or bland. Although not the most photogenic recipe out there, this Slow Cooker Creamy Ranch Pork Chop recipe is delicious – and not at all dry as it simmers in a creamy gravy that goes well with mashed potatoes. It was also extremely easy to throw together.

INGREDIENTS

4 boneless pork chops

1 can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup (I used two)

3/4 cup of milk

1 package of ranch salad dressing mix

1/8 cup of water

I also added 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms I had in the fridge and that I needed to use

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Put pork chops in slow cooker (mine were frozen).

2.) In a separate bowl mix together milk, ranch dressing mix, mushroom soup and water.

3.) Pour mixture over pork chops in the slow cooker.

4.) Cook on high for 4 hours – although I think I cooked mine for more like 6 hours because my chops were frozen when I tossed them in to the slow cooker. You just want to make sure they aren’t pink inside.

I think this lends itself well to being served with with mashed potatoes!

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

I’ve shared a lot of similar slow cooker recipes before but this Slow Cooker Chicken Chili is definitely a recipe that stands out for me! I found the flavors spot on, the consistency perfect and I definitely plan on making this again.

INGREDIENTS

2 chicken breasts
Or you could substitute 1 lb ground turkey or beef, 4 chicken thighs, or mix and match

2 15 oz cans diced tomatoes, undrained

2 15 oz cans black beans, drained

1 4 oz can green chiles

1 bell pepper, diced
For some pretty colors, I added 1/2 a red pepper and 1/2 a yellow pepper

1 small onion, diced

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp cumin

2 tb *Penzey’s chili powder
*Stephanie recommends the Penzey’s brand, saying she thinks a high quality chili powder makes all the difference here. Shame on me – I didn’t have any so I used what was in the spice cabinet – still amazing!

2 tsp sugar or substitute

1/2 cup regular brewed coffee (decaf is fine)
How convenient! I used the remnants of the breakfast coffee! 

1 tsp salt

Chicken-Chili-Crockpot-recipe

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) If you’re using turkey or beef, brown the meat first. If you’re using chicken, place the meat whole in the slow cooker and then just shred right before serving.

2.) Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.

3.) Top with Tillamook sour cream and cheddar cheese – if you’re lucky enough to have it where you live.

Crockpot-Chili-CutieMy little helper.

So I put my chicken breast in frozen – because I’m a super planner like that. And I just cooked on medium for the first 4 hours then when I was certain everything was going to cook thru, I turned it to low.  Turned out delicious.

Slow Cooker Ravioli

Crockpot-Slow-Cooker-RavioliCheck out my Slow Cooker Pinterest board.

Slow Cooker Ravioli

This Slow Cooker Ravioli is probably one of the EASIEST slow cooker recipes I’ve ever made. Very, very simple and fast. Great for days when you really only have five minutes to throw things into a crockpot – no dicing, slicing or pre-cooking!

INGREDIENTS

1 (25 oz) bag frozen (beef) ravioli
I used spinach and cheese raviolis

1 (26 oz) jar pasta sauce

1 8 oz can tomato sauce
I used 12 0z of tomato paste. Because that’s what I had and I envisioned a thicker sauce

1 Cup water

2-3 teaspoons red pepper 
Omit if you don’t want too spicy. I left this out so my kids wouldn’t fuss.

Italian season to taste

1 Cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Ravioli-Slow-Cooker-Crockpot

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Pour half of pasta sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker

2.) Add frozen ravioli

3.) Add additional pasta sauce, tomato sauce, water and red pepper (if added) over ravioli in slow cooker

4.) Sprinkle Italian seasoning on top

5.) Sprinkle cheese on top

6.) Cook on low for 4-5 hours. This is not one you want to stir a lot – as the ravioli could break apart after getting soft. Although honestly – it all tastes amazing together, so it won’t matter either way.

7.) Serve with garlic bread and a green salad. Add more mozzarella for garnish if desired.

Slow Cooker Chai Spiced Applesauce

Slow Cooker Crockpot Chai Spiced Applesauce

This Chai Spiced Applesauce is awesome sauce, if you ask me. It’s packed with the scrumptious flavors of fall and it it’s incredibly easy to make! My chai spiced applesauce turned out a bit darker than I expected – but I think it’s due to the cinnamon and brown sugar, and I used the immersion blender to make it smooth – including even the cloves. Or it could be that I left it cook for way too long because of basketball practice (this is real life, my friends). Even with the extra cook time it tastes super duper.

INGREDIENTS

8 lbs of apples – peeled cored and cut into large chunks.
I did slices – because I have something similar to this Apple And Potato Peeler, Corer, and Slicer and I processed them using that to save time.

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp orange rind (I used zest)

3 – 5 tsp brown sugar
Stephanie says she didn’t use sugar because she used Gala apples, which are sweet enough that the applesauce doesn’t need any extra sugar. If you’re using tarter apples might want to add sugar. I, in true form, didn’t read this all the way through and added sugar to my gala apples. :) It still turned out delicious.

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Combine all your ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours. If you like it chunky, mash it up with a potato masher. If you like it smoother, use an immersion blender.

2.) Refrigerate and enjoy.

I used an immersion blender (like this one – Cuisinart Smart Stick 2-Speed Immersion Hand Blender)  – because I’m a Type A personality, k? I like things smooth and integrated and uniform. I’m neurotic, you already know this. Chunky or smooth, I don’t think you can go wrong.

Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Soup

Slow Cooker Crockpot Creamy Tortellini Soup

If you’re looking for a savory, robust and very filling soup, this Crockpot Creamy Tortellini Soup is amazing! My husband loved it – raving all night about how good it was. I like this recipe because I think it would work well without meat, without mushrooms and because it comes together so easily. This recipe will definitely make it into our regular slow cooker rotation.

INGREDIENTS

6 cups of spaghetti sauce
You can use homemade, I used a 24-oz store-bought jarred roasted garlic spaghetti sauce without meat.

1/2 lb browned ground beef

1/2 lb browned italian sausage, sliced (about 3-4)

4 cups of chicken broth

8 oz cream cheese
I used regular, not low fat cream cheese. I find that the lower fat cream cheeses can curdle in the slow cooker. The more you stir it the more likely it will all dissolve if you do opt for low fat cream cheese. I’d be interested to try this recipe with just regular half-and-half, eliminating this problem all together?

8 oz sliced fresh baby bella mushrooms

16 oz frozen cheese tortellini

1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan

Handful of fresh spinach leaves (optional), cut into strips

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) If you want to throw it together quickly in the morning I recommend cooking up your meat the night before. Brown your ground beef and italian sausages (separately). Drain beef. Cut cooked sausages into thin slices. Refrigerate until morning.

2.) In the morning, combine spaghetti sauce and meat, chicken broth, cream cheese and mushrooms to slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 – 8 hours.

3.) About 30 minutes before dinner, turn Crockpot to HIGH and toss in frozen tortellini, fresh spinach and parmesan cheese. Give it a good stir and cover and cook until it’s tender and hot.

4.) Serve it up and slurp it down. Top with parmesan or mozzarella cheese if you prefer more cheese.

Crockpot Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef

Crockpot-slow-cooker-salsa-verde-beefpin it.

Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef

This slow cooker salsa verde beef recipe apparently makes “the best tacos I’ve ever had,” per my handsome husband. He said this and I found myself slightly offended, and I replied, “But I’ve made you so many tacos. . . ” And he replied with a smile, “Well you made these, too.”

In the nearly 10 years I’ve been married to this man, he’s never complained, ever, about a meal I’ve made. At worse, he’ll just eat it and be done (bless him for that). He’s always complementary, even when I know he’s fibbing just to make me feel appreciated for cooking a meal. But I don’t think I’ve ever heard so many compliments about any particular recipe. Really. It was a hit.

So yes, I can pretty much plan on making this Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Beef recipe many times again, since now every other taco recipe I have up my sleeve will be compared to the “best taco recipe I’ve ever had,” declaration. They were really good, I agree. Even my kids had seconds.

I think this would be an wonderful recipe to make for a taco bar if you want to take it up a notch from the typical hamburger tacos. Taco bars are great ways to serve lots of people with a meal that allows them to adapt it with the toppings they like. Or make these into nachos for a party-size appetizer.

INGREDIENTS

3-pound boneless rump or chuck roast, cut into 1.5 inch cubes

1/2 Cup diced onion

1 Tablespoon chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup salsa verde (you know, salsa that is green)
I used mild, use whatever spice level you’d like

1 Tablespoon olive oil 

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) Heat oil in a large skillet. Add beef cubes and brown all sides. Work in batches if you have to.

2.) Transfer meat to 5-quart slow cooker. Add onions to the drippings in the skillet and saute until they are slightly brown. Stir in the spices and cook for about one minute. Add the salsa and stir, scraping up any brown bits.

3.) Add this salsa, onion, seasoning mixture to the beef in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours. The meat should be very tender and shred easily when it’s stirred.

Slow-Cooker-Beef-Salsa-Verde-Crockpot

I didn’t stir mine much, so it stayed in cube form for the most part. We topped with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, avocado and sour cream to make tacos. I would have added olives if I had them. I think it would taste great on a layer of chips and topped with nacho toppings.

Crockpot Slow Cooker Spiral Ham with pineapple

Slow-Cooker-Crockpot-spiral-hamPin it

Slow Cooker Crockpot Spiral Ham

You can’t really screw up a ham. And when you toss it into a crockpot, it really feels like cheating. I’ve been wanting to try cooking a Crockpot Spiral Ham for awhile and I’m glad I gave it a try. This Crockpot ham recipe calls for pineapple and brown sugar so it definitely comes out tasting sweet – perhaps like a Honey Baked ham? I’m only guessing since I’ve never had one.

INGREDIENTS

Spiral Ham with glaze packet
You would ideally want it to fit in your slow cooker. Mine was about 10 pounds in a 6 quart crockpot.

Pineapple bits in can, with juice, 20 oz

2 Cups brown sugar

1 Cup Ginger Ale

Crockpot-Slowcooker-spiral-ham

How to prepare

1.) Line the bottom of the crockpot with two cups of brown sugar. Some recipes call for three, that seems like an awful lot.

2.) Place ham, slices down (flush with the flat bottom of the crock)

3.) Sprinkle the ham glaze powder (comes with most spiral hams) over the ham

4.) Pour full can of pineapple bits into crockpot with juice. Pouring over the ham and glaze powder.

5.) Pour a cup of Ginger Ale over the ham

6.) Place lid on top of ham and cook on low for 4-6 hours until it’s heated through
If the ham is too big to fit in the crockpot, you can cover it with aluminum foil – for a makeshift lid. Or you can cut off the top part of the ham and shove it into the side of the crockpot. Whatever works – as long as it can be covered.

7.) Serve with some of the juice from the crockpot and it’ll be great!

Crockpot-Spiral-Ham-Slow-Cooker-recipe

If you overcook this it will be dry. Basically you want to give it enough time to soak up some of the juice and heat up! Don’t even think about putting it on anything higher than low. And don’t go playing with it – the more you move it around the more it’s likely to shred and break apart.
