Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

This was a great, easy slow cooker recipe.  I love white chili, but haven’t really found a good one.  I used The Kitchn’s as a base, and as usual it was awesome.  I adjusted to taste, but I’m replicating the recipe as is so that you can change as you like.  Lots of leftovers and easy to freeze, so great for lunches or last minute meals later.  I like to top with cheese (obviously 😉 ).

Chicken Pot Pie

Believe it or not, I have never actually had chicken pot pie.  I recognize this is crazy.  Luckily this has been remedied, and with a great recipe, too.  This is from a Pioneer Woman recipe, and we loved it – leftovers were awesome!  We made this for our Halloween party.  You can use your pie crust recipe of choice, or store-bought, and it will make two pies.

Slow Cooker Honey-Soy Drumsticks

Summertime slow cooker recipe trial and error continues, and I have to say that we really enjoyed this one.  Next time, I might thicken the sauce for a bit longer afterwards to get a better coating, but this was pretty great even with a watery sauce.  The leftovers were awesome as well!  We had this with zucchini and summer squash, because we are pretty much drowning in both. 😉slowcookerdrummies

Broccoli and Cheese Stuffed Chicken

I’m always on the lookout for interesting ways to cook chicken breast – a) it’s kind of boring on its own, and b) I’m not fabulous at most methods of cooking it.  But this came out quite well, wasn’t dry, and was great for leftovers – just the right size for lunch.  You could really use any vegetable and cheese you wanted with this – I did broccoli and provolone.  Very low cal and easy.  I got this from Skinnytaste.

Chicken and Bok Choy

Stir fry is not something I usually bother with a recipe to prepare, as it’s a great clean out the fridge opportunity.  But I saw this on Rasa Malaysia and wanted to give the idea of it a try, simply because we love bok choy.  I almost never use chicken in my stir fry, because I suck at cooking it any way but braised/baked/handed to Shawn to grill.  Otherwise it’s gummy, tough, and dry, yum yum!   But this was actually a great technique and I will do it again.  The sauce was light, and I found myself thinking that this would be a lovely summertime meal with additions from the garden to accompany the bok choy.  We bulked this up with some shirataki noodles instead of rice.

Chicken Parm Meatballs

I found this somewhere in the expanse that is Pinterest, and it seemed like a good idea…although ground chicken is sometimes kind of weird.  But this was pretty good, and a generous portion as well.  It fit with the leaner proteins for the 21 Day Fix, and was a good use for a jar of my tomato sauce from our garden this past summer.

Chicken, broccoli, and quinoa casserole

I’m not usually a big casserole person (aversion to cream of x, and I do try to stay low carb), but then I saw this – spurred on by this month’s Cooking Light with a similar casserole using brown rice, but we had some quinoa and it sounded good. I found this on Pinch of Yum, and modified it a bit with less liquid and no bacon (I know, I know). It was very good! Perfect for lunch.
