Chicken with potatoes, onions, and carrots, in the slowcooker is my go to meal if I don’t know what to do with the chicken. It’s quick, easy, I can put it in the slowcooker in the morning and forget about it, and my family loves it. Sometimes we have it once a week, and sometimes we go a month without having it. It depends on how busy life is, and how creative I am feeling in the kitchen.
It’s so simple, it doesn’t even need a recipe. Place cut up potatoes, carrots, and onions in the slowcooker. Use how ever many you need to feed your family. Place boneless, skinless chicken breast on top. Again, enough for your family. Season with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder to taste. I use not quite a teaspoon of salt, about 20 grinds on the pepper grinder, and about a teaspoon each of onion and garlic powder. I like a lot of onion an garlic. You could use fresh garlic, if you have it. Sometimes, I add about a half a cup of water, sometimes I don’t. lol I cook on high for 5-6 hours, or on low all day. Cooking time depends on how much food you have, and hot your slowcooker gets.
I deviated from tacos a little for taco night. I made Steak and Cheese tacos. Except they weren’t really tacos. Just steak and cheese on a tortilla. We’re having it again this Wednesday because I cooked a big package of meat, and the other half is waiting in the freezer.
Because freezer meals get precedent over me having to cook. lol
I made milkshakes for the family last night. Our favorite milkshake recipe is Magic Milkshakes from Hillbilly Housewife. They are quick and easy. Just throw everything in the blender. No ice cream needed!
