A Few New Recipes

These are both easy and quick Crockpot recipes. I just threw things in, so measurements are approximate. You can season according to your liking!

Crockpot Orange Chicken (recipe for 2 chicken breasts)

2 frozen chicken breasts
1/2 c. orange marmalade
salt, pepper
1/2 packet onion soup mix
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp Teryaki sauce or soy sauce (I used Teryaki)
1/2 c. water

Spray Crockopot with cooking spray. Place 2 chicken breasts and water in pot. Season with salt and pepper. Smother each chicken breast with marmalade. Sprinkle on soup mix, sugar and Teryaki sauce. Cook on low for approximately 4 hours or high for about 3 hours??? Basically just cook until done:) Serve over rice.

Crockpot Tomato Basil Chicken (a variation of tomato chicken)

2 frozen chicken breasts
1/4 c. water
salt, pepper
dried basil
minced garlic
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
*angel hair pasta and freshly grated parmesan cheese (for serving)
***grated mozerella cheese (higher-fat version)

Spray Crockpot with cooking spray. Place chicken breast in pot. Lightly season with salt, pepper, basil and garlic. Pour can of tomatoes over chicken. Season with salt, pepper, basil and garlic. **At this point, you can also top it off with grated mozerella cheese before cooking. Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours. Serve over pasta with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

Oooo. I'm glad you posted these. I have a fear of the crockpot, I don't know what I'm doing.
