Just too easy for words. Place chicken in crock pot and pour soda and water over the chicken and then top with celery.

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.

Toss it in the crockpot in the morning, in the evening fix some rice and some stir fried veggies and you have an easy, nutritious meal. Who needs the takeout joint around the corner?

Place chicken seasoned with salt, pepper and coriander or cumin in a crock pot set on low. Top with 1/2 jar salsa. Add corn. About 1 hour prior to serving add the remaining salsa and one can drained black beans, stir and allow to heat.

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?

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 ( for using your crockpot, I've gotten so many recipes from them.

The website lah34a referred you to is the best, it has some great crockpot recipes!

My easiest crockpot recipe is to throw a bag of frozen chicken breasts (skinless,boneless) in the crockpot, empty 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup on top of the chicken & cook on high approximately 4 hours, then serve over rice or noodles. Sometimes I add a bit of garlic or chopped onion, but it doesn't nee anything. My family loves it! You wouldn't believe how delicious those 2 single ingredients come out!

The bag of chicken breasts I get at Walmart, I believe they are about 3lb. For the cooking time, my new crockpot finishes it in 3-4 hours, while my old crockpot takes 5-6 hours.

I don't normally like cream of mushroom soup, but I love this. I tried cream of chicken soup & it didn't taste as good.
