I like to use my crockpot, but need some new ideas.  Hopefully some of you have some good recipes you will share?

Here is what we are doing tonight.  

Salsa Chicken

Spread some salsa in the bottom of the Crockpot.  Put in chicken breasts and then pour more salsa over top.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.  Right before serving, stir in some sour cream.  (I'm also making rice to serve with this, some salad and have a loaf of bread in the bread machine.)

Anybody else have any dinner ideas?

THAT sounds easy and good!  I just did a pot roast in mine yesterday.  Brown the meat on all sides, throw in onion, potatoes (didn't even peel them, just scrubbed 'em), carrots and celery (got the kind already cut up at the store and just broke them in half), 2 jars of mushrooms on top, a little water, and walk away!  :)

Here's another very easy one;

One whole chicken, rinsed, salt and pepper inside and out
One lemon, prick all over with fork
One half cup honey
One half cup Ora ge juice

Roll, press lemon, then prick all over with a fork
Place lemon in the cavity of the chicken
Place chicken in crockpot
Pour 1/2 cup orange juice into a measuring cup,
Pour 1/2 cup honey into same measuring cup (pour honey 2nd so it doesn't stick in measuring cup)
Mix OJ and honey, pour over chicken, cover, and cook on low for 6-7 hours.

Chicken will literally fall apart when done. Serve over rice or buttered noodles.

I got a slow cooker for Christmas and have been working on using it more, and using it better. There were a couple of articles in a newsletter from Fine Cooking magazine that I have bookmarked that look helpful...
