Just purchased a slow cooker. These recipes came from manual. Haven't tried YET! :D
- 2 (16 ounce) packages frozen mixed vegetables
- 2 (1 1/2 ounce) envelopes beef stroganoff sauce mix
- 2 (3 lb) whole chickens
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- Combine vegetables and sauce mix in the cooking vessel. Sprinkle Seasonings on the chicken. Place chicken in the cooking vessell over the vegetables. Cover and cook: Low-8 hrs (or) High-5 hours.
While I wouldn't make this for Christmas dinner it sure did make a tasty weeknight supper. The chicken is tender and moist. After reading Rita's review I took her suggestion and used scant 1/2 pf a sauce packet and cooked on low for 5 hrs (my small chicken was under 3 lbs). For the veggies I used a frozen mix of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower. This was very easy to make.
This doesn`t give you crisp skin BUT it sure does give you tender fall apart chicken. I made 1 - 4 pound chicken (that I placed butter under the skin), 16 ounce stew veggies (potato, carrots, and pearl onions) and 1 packet of sauce mix. I did think the mix was a bit to salty. !/2 a packet would be more then enough. I cooked 5 hours on high. Thanks for the goodness. Made for adopt a chef.
