Easy Crock Pot Chicken Zucchini

Y’all know when it comes to cooking, I like it fast and easy.  While cooking in a crock pot is not necessarily fast, it is definitely easy. 

Here’s what you need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 or so zucchini
  • 9 or so small potatoes
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • seasonings to taste

Here’s what you do:

I start out with about 4 frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts.  I put those in the crock pot first.

I then cut up and added several (and yes I used all 6 pictured here) zucchini and lots of potatoes.  I would have put more potatoes in, but I was trying to control myself.

I added some seasonings to taste and 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, not pictured.  This time I used reduced sodium (go me!!) soup and added several cans of water to fill up the crock pot. 

I cooked on low for 6 hours and the chicken was soooo tender!  The first night we usually just have it in a bowl as shown.  You can also serve this over rice or noodles.  It was yummy for my tummy!

I do make more than we would eat for one meal as I love this as leftovers!  It reheats well. 

Let me know if you try it and what you thought!

Easy Crock Pot Pepper Steak

Today I made a really delicious supper that was super quick and easy!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb beef stew meat
  • 1/2 c chopped onion
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced into big strips
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 1 large can stewed tomatoes with liquid

Now please remember that I “modify” my recipes and usually make them the same way each time.  But not always!  This is how I made it this time.

Here’s what you do:

I lightly coated the stew meat with cornstarch and put it in the bottom of the crock pot.

I then added the bell pepper and onion and then the stewed tomatoes.  I added about 1/2 a can of water. 

I poured the soy sauce on next and also sprinkled some garlic powder over it all.

I set the the crock pot on low for 6 hours, serve over a bed of rice and that’s it!  See?  Easy peasy!

And yes, I know that this pic is not the best but by the time I realized it I had already eaten my meal!  It was that good! 🙂
