While you wait....

While you wait for delicious restaurant quality recipes I will give you this slow cooker keeper. This recipe will feed 3 adults and 3 children.
  1. 4 boneless skinless chicken breast
  2. 2-3 cups of Ranch dressing...mmm.....use this ingredient generously as it is pretty much the only flavoring.
  3. 10 Red potatoes
  4. 2 cans chicken broth
  5. 1 bag of stir fry veggies
  6. 4 cups Rice
  7. Lemon Pepper

Put the chicken breast in the bottom of the crock pot and pour the ranch over the top. Quarter the potatoes and onions, add them to the crock pot, pour the chicken broth over the top. Cover and cook on High for up to 6 hours. Stirring occasionally. Chicken and potatoes will be very tender when done. 20 minutes before eating add the bag of veggies and stir. Cover and let cook. Meanwhile, cook the rice with the lemon pepper.

When the veggies are finished, ladle all the vegetables into a separate bowl.

Take the chicken out and put it on a plate. Shred the chicken.

Put the gravy in a sauce pan and add a couple tablespoons of corn starch to thicken. Don't thicken too much, you still want it to be soupy. Add the chicken and the rice to the gravy and stir. ( I did this step in the crock pot and that is why it ended up soupy, we liked it that way though ).


I would have a picture of this...but we ate it all!
