Crockpot Chicken Curry February 20, 2007

Filed under: chicken,crockpot,main dishes — bonny @ 7:47 pm

8 – 10 chicken breasts (or cut up chicken pieces)

1 16 ounce jar salsa

1 chopped onion

2 tbsp curry powder

1 c plain yogurt (or sour cream)

Place chicken in crockpot. Add salsa, onion and curry powder. Cook for several hours in crockpot.  Stir in yogurt right before serving.  Serve over rice.


Pulled Pork

Filed under: crockpot,main dishes — bonny @ 7:45 pm

14 ounces beef broth

1/4 c coffee

1- 5 lb pork roast

Season roast with salt and pepper.  Add to crockpot with beef broth and coffee. Cook several hours. Shred with a fork, draining off some of the broth if necessary. Serve on buns, accompanied with barbeque sauce and sliced onions, etc.

The cooked pork freezes really well.  I put a few pounds of frozen pork – straight from the freezer – into the crockpot with the contents of a few envelopes of taco seasoning, and in a few hours we have really good pork tacos.
