Chicken day yesterday

I abused one of the recipes posted earlier to such an extent that I guess I created another recipe! I did two different crock pot chicken recipes yesterday. Here they are:

Chicken Alfredo (a VERY precise recipe! :) )
3 (ish) frozen boneless skinless chicken breasts
enough water to cover the bottom of your small crock pot
a sprinkling of garlic powder

Crock the chicken, water and garlic on high while you're at church. When you get home, microwave 1 jar of alfredo sauce for a minute then mix the sauce with the chicken in the crock pot. The chicken will likely shread as you stir in the sauce. Add 1/2 chopped tomato (or whatever you have in the fridge) and add a dash of Italian seasoning. Serve over egg noodles

(hint: COVER the jar with a paper towel when you microwave the sauce, I still have to clean out my microwave!). Very yummy and kid approved!

BBQ Chicken Sandwiches (this was inspired by the earlier BBQ beef recipe)
1 frozen chicken (about 3ish lbs)
1ish cup BBQ sauce
1 can root beer (hey, it was what I had!)
1/2 finely chopped onion (to hide it from fussy eaters who think they don't like onion)

Put all ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on low about 10ish hours. Drain off most of the juice, but save it. Shred the chicken, adding some of the liquid so the chicken is the consistancy you want it to be. Serve on nice soft buns (with cheese and pickles if you so desire!)

There we go! My first contribution to the ROUS collection. Recipes are fussy husband and kid tested, mother approved! :)

Thanks, Tara! I'll have to try these soon. I'm so glad we've had so many contributions! I was getting soooo tired of cooking the same old stuff that I was often just buying microwave meals. Jamethan likes it a lot more now that Mommy is cooking again!
