I'm a bachelor and this is a quick way to have three or more meals fast. What you need depends on what you want to make.

Take boneless chicken breasts and cook in the crock pot with about 2 cups of water on high. Cooking time is a couple hours. Make sure the chicken falls apart with a fork.

Related Content(article continues below)

Split the chicken into portions to feed the appropriate number.

Freeze in zip lock bags or air tight containers. If some of the chicken is for fajitas, cover with fajita seasoning before freezing. Each recipe requires the chicken to be sliced or chopped up. You can save time and freeze it appropriately.

Fajitas

Ingredients:

Directions:

Slice up the green peppers and onions into strips and brown in a frying pan. Add your chicken (thaw if frozen) cut into strips (if you didn't cut them before freezing). Generously sprinkle on fajita seasoning. Cooked until browned nicely.

Put the wraps on a microwave safe plate and cover with a paper towel. Dampen the paper towel first, just wet your hand and flick water onto the towel. Don't put the paper towel in the water; too wet. Microwave for a minute to make hot. You may need to heat them more. Do in thirty second intervals. If you make them too hot you have to wait for them to cool and they harden and get brittle.

Spread mayonnaise or sour creme through the center of the wrap. Add the chicken and veggies. Fold the bottom of the wrap up about an inch to an inch and a half over the chicken. Fold each side over the chicken. Enjoy

Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

Directions:

Chop up the chicken (if you didn't do that before freezing) and add to a bowl. Add mayonnaise, chopped onions (if desired) and chopped sweet pickles. Stir up and spread over bread or buns.

Chicken And Gravy

Ingredients:

Directions:

Chop up the chicken (if you didn't do that before freezing) and add to a pot with the canned gravy. Heat up and spread over biscuits.

Thats a really good idea. I will have to think about doing that after the holidays. The less time I can spend in the kitchen the better I like it. I tell people I am allergic to kitchens.

An all in one dish. Use enough salsa to cover bottom of crockpot. Next add tomatoes (used my own home made). Sprinkle in the herbs, lime juice and hot sauce. Add the chicken last.

I have just bought my first crockpot and have read the basic instructions that came with the product. The impression I'm getting is that you always need to cook with a fair amount of liquid. Is this the case?

I've also been looking at the internet about cooking chicken in a crockpot and it's really scaring me with the food poisoning comments. Do you always have to sear the outside before you cook the chicken?

Thanks.

I absolutely love a whole chicken cooked in my crockpot, tastes great and falls off the bone! I never put more than a 1/2 cup of water in mine and lightly salt it. I leave the skin on, because it, not being in the water, will crust somewhat like oven baked, plus it does not add that much fat. I don't sear any meat I put in it.

If you have a Facebook account, put in your search Crockpot girls, they have a great page and website (crockpotgirls.com) for using your crockpot, I've gotten so many recipes from them.
