Slow Cooker Chicken Casserole

I bought a small slow cooker a while back while on sale at Costco. Primarily I use it for cooking steel cut oatmeal overnight for a tasty morning breakfast, but I'm trying to branch out. Today I made a version of this recipe - Julia's Easy Slow Cooker Chicken - and I have to say, it was delicious! And so easy to prepare in the AM before heading out the door (an essential!).


- Two chicken breasts - I used frozen that had been semi-defrosted overnight in the fridge - cut into 1/2 inch cubes.
- One potato, washed and cut into inch cubes (skin on - I love potato skin!)
- 1/2 cup of carrots (I used fresh baby carrots)
- 1 can of cream of celery soup (i'm sure any cream soup will do!)
- 2 "cans" of water - pour water into the empty soup can twice to wash out the dregs

Put all together in the slow cooker, slap on low and come back after work to tasty chicken casserole!

Your last few posts are exactly the things I've been googling but haven't had the time/energy/money to do!

I dont' have a slow cooker, but it's on my shopping list.

And the CP soap. Oh, if only I had the time for that (and wasn't scared to have sodium hydroxide sitting around the house....).

Love these posts though and I'm filing them in the back of my mind for when I actually do have time!

Great recipe and I bet tofu or a thick white fish could be easily substitured for the chicken. For PleaseRecycle: I think a slow cooker might be a great investment for you given your crazy schedule especially with clinic visits and pregnancy. i am sure we could all come up with some recipes so you could come home to a meal already started.
