Do you have some fast and easy meals that you like to make when you're in a hurry? Do you have a favorite crock-pot meal?
This is delicious and extremely easy to throw together. Almost everyone enjoyed it immensely. There's always that one person who doesn't care for it, strange enough he came back for doubles and some people even came back for triples. Brown rice holds up better than white rice for long cooking times and is more nutritionally valuable and adds great flavor.
Chicken in the Crock-Pot
1 whole chicken frozen
2 cups brown rice
1 can mushrooms-rinsed
1 -14.5 oz diced tomatoes with basil and oregano
1 -14.5 oz diced tomatoes with garlic and rosemary
1 Bag of Baby Carrots
4 garlic cloves-peeled
vegetable broth approx 2 cups (you can use all water, but broth adds a nice flavor)
2 cups water
4-5 Bay Leaves
Dump all ingredients in the crockpot.Cook on high for 6-7 hours. If using non-frozen chicken, I would probably cook on low for less time.* I used some portobello mushrooms in addition to the can of mushrooms, you can probably also throw in other ingredients maybe spinach, sweet potato or chickpeas.**You don't want to use all broth because it will be too salty.
