I just got a 6 quart crockpot in order to actually have real food on the table more than on rare occasion. Just wondering if you all might share your favorite and simplest crodk pot recepies with me. I am a pathetic cook. I also am a nurse as you are so my time and patience (for cooking) is limited.

Oh here is a recipe that is an old German favorite of mine:
Sauerkraut (2 lbs) in bottom with caraway seeds and apple (2 or more) slices cut in 6 pieces. Add country style pork ribs (4-6) that have been trimmed of fat. You may place the ribs on top or cover lightly in the sauerkraut. Cook on low for 8 + hours or till the meat falls off the bone!
OMG.. oh so good! I love these served with mashed potatoes. I see real mashed potaotes in the forzen food section theses days!
Eat this dish with a good German beer!

CROCK POT CHICKEN CACCIATORE
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts
two 6-oz can tomato paste
16-oz can crushed tomatoes
1/2 pound fresh sliced mushrooms
1 sliced green or red pepper
2 sliced carrots
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup water
Placed sliced onion in bottom of crock pot. Add chicken. Stir remaining ingredients and spread over chicken. Cover. Cook on low 7-9 hours or high 3-4 hours. Serve over hot pasta.
Very easy recipe -- I prep it the night before & stick it in my fridge. In the am -- turn the crock pot on low -- nice/easy. Play with the seasonings & the amount of tomatoes depending on how much sauce you want over the pasta. I'm Italian and tend to spice it up a bit (no such thing as using ONLY two garlic cloves in my house.) Enjoy.
