Once upon a time, on a blog far away (or maybe it was an ezine and maybe it wasn’t so far away) an organizer shared with her readers the joy she experienced each and every Monday, when without thought, dinner was effortlessly thrown into the Crock-Pot at the start of the day. By dinner time, a warm and delicious chicken dinner was ready for her family. She loved the simplicity of this meal, fondly known as Monday night chicken, and just wanted to share her joy with her readers, and suggest that they, too, take some of the guesswork out of weekly meal planning.
The organizer, however, never shared the recipe with her readers. Until now, months and months later, when a new (and very dedicated) blog reader named Stacy T. spent an entire afternoon reading the organizer’s blog. Stacy’s interest was piqued. “What is this Monday night chicken?” And so Stacy emailed the organizer to ask for the recipe. And so, here my friends, is the recipe for Monday night chicken, a token of appreciation to Stacy for spending so much of her day with me. Thanks Stacy…hope you enjoy.
(The recipe, by the way, sounds horrible right now with this ghastly heat. But it’s extremely delicious in the winter.) None the less, here she is:
6 frozen chicken breasts*
2 cans cream of chicken soup
salt and pepper to taste
Put chicken in slow cookers and pour soup over top. Add salt and pepper. Place cover on slow cooker and cook on low for ten to twelve hours. Enjoy!
It seems a bit anti-climatic…but perhaps that’s the point. It’s really, really easy and it can strike one thing off your to do list each and every week. We usually have this with rice and a veggie. Yummy (when it’s cooler out) and my whole family loves it (another bonus). For variety try other types of soup … like cream of asparagus or cream of celery.
*Yes, frozen! You don’t have to defrost which makes it even faster and you can always have the ingredients on hand. I love that!
I have to say, I love my Crock-Pot. I love having dinner ready without having to get dinner ready at dinner time. Know what I mean? Do you have a super simple, go-to favorite for your Crock-Pot? Wanna share? I’m always on the hunt for really easy Crock-Pot dishes…and if you had one that tastes yummy even when it’s 100 degrees…now that would make my heart sing.
