Easily adapted for whatever you have on hand. I often substitute thighs for the breasts, regular brandy or apple juice for the apple brandy, and if you can't find Havarti Cheese, Gouda or Colby work well. If you have a newer model slow cooker, this will cook in 4-5 hours, as opposed to 6-7.
From one of Gooseberry Patch's newest cookbooks ("Fall, Family & Friends") comes this very Southern recipe for Shrimp & Grits. Now I am not Southern (my DH is), but we both love grits. I do know this dish is very traditional in the Southeast. In a check on Amazon, I discovered a cookbook devoted ENTIRELY to shrimp & grits, can you believe it? This is an easy version to be made in the crock pot. Y'all, I haven't try it yet, but as soon as I find the grits (scarce here in the southwest) I'm going to -- DH can't wait!
This is a very good recipe for my son who is 2 years old. He isn't one for chicken, but will eat this. I put individual servings for him into the freezer so when the hubby and I eat something that we know he won't eat, I just pop this in the microwave. Very easy and satisfying.

An easy, no fuss crock pot dinner. I serve this aside of mashed potatoes or Recipe #64252 and applesauce. Recipe is courtesy of "Fix It and Forget About It" cookbook, with a few of my own adaptations to the recipe.
Adapted from Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee, this is easy with yummy results. Put it on in the morning and come home to a soothing, comforting dinner. Crackers or bread and a salad finish off this meal.
I got a similar recipe of this a long time ago, got bored with it back then, and changed some ingredients. My husband and daughter get so excited when we're gonna have this for dinner. I don't measure some things, so if you need me to explain further, let me know. The liquid is so good that I keep sipping it! HA!
I work nights and crock pot recipes are life savers. This one is often requested by my family. My family doesn't much care for peas so I increase my potatoes and carrots to equal 1 1/2 C to substitute. The cream of celery soup really makes this good. I have used cream of chicken or mushroom and my family makes comments.
Crock pot E-Z; creamy, chunky fully-bodied chowder using cubed leftover ham and Half and Half(substitute, if you choose) to tempt your taste buds. Even better next day or can be frozen in muffins cups zipped tightly into large plastic bag for individual use later. Base recipe from internet with my upgrades. I'm trying it over rice as an encore; whaddya think?
Another variation of this lovely Greek stew. I used to make this on the stove-top and in the oven, I have now adapted it for my crock pot. Most time goes into cleaning the small onions and I do this the evening before. If you don't want to be bothered with that substitute a large chopped onion.
Last year I received a crock pot cookbook with a recipe in it for pulled pork. It was nice but I thought the sauce it made in the pot was a bit too thin. I made several changes and am happy with this recipe so its time to share it! I sometimes have to water the sauce down now. The sauce/marinade can be made up to 3 days in advance and kept in the fridge until needed. Marinating time is not included. I make this in my 3 1/2 quart crock pot.
I make these for DH and friends for Football Sunday's. They love them. They are very easy to make and everybody can help themselves and add their own condiments. Serve with chips and plenty of cold beer! They are sure to disappear! I leave the green peppers out since I hate them! This is a great recipe to take to a potluck and can easily be doubled.
