  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Bell's Poultry seasoning
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Minute Rice

Mix the cans of soup with the rice at the bottom of the Crockpot. You may substitute the type of soup you use in any combination (for example: 2 cans cream of chicken soup and one can celery soup).
Add the diced celery, onion, and garlic and stir. Submerge the chicken in the soup.
Turn heat to high for 10 minutes, then reduce to medium and cook for 4-5 hours. Or cook on high for 3-4 hours.

Variation: leave out the rice and serve over cooked Pennsylvania style wide noodles.

Note: Use temperature setting recommended by your owner's manual for cooking. Some crockery cookers have 3 settings - high, medium, and keep warm.
Don't use the "keep warm" setting instead of the "cooking" settings for extended periods. Sometimes the high setting will cause overcooking and you will lose the benefits of using a slow cooker.

The high setting is best used to bring food up to a safe temperature quickly before beginning slow cooking at the "medium" or "normal" setting.The crock pot recipe is ready !


CROCKPOT PUDDING ...a great crock pot recipe to try !

  • 1 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)

Place 6 cups water into Crockpot and turn on medium heat (this is "low" on some models - you don't want to use the keep-warm setting).Cream together butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Using a whisk off fork, beat eggs well and add slowly to mixture.
Stir in molasses, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, flour and buttermilk.
Dissolve baking soda and 1 teaspoon hot water. Combine well with other ingredients.
Grease and flour well a pudding mold with a tight fitting cover or Crockpot cake pan. If you don't have one of these, you can use a metal coffee can covered with silver foil.
Place in Crockpot and steam four to five hours or until a knife inserted in center comes out nearly clean.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 c. water
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla, orange, or lemon extract

Cream together the butter and sugar.
In a small saucepan, bring to a boil 1 1/2 c. of water thickened with flour to the consistency of cream (about 3 to 4 tablespoons of flour).
Stir constantly using a whisk while adding flour gradually to boiling water to prevent lumps.
Remove from heat and stir quickly into the sugar and butter mixture.
Flavor with 1 teaspoon vanilla, orange, or lemon extract.
Serve warm or cool, topped with sauce and a dollop of whipped cream garnished with a sprinkling of brown sugar mixed with freshly grated ginger.
This steamed pudding will have a consistency somewhere between a moist cake and a pudding, or a pudding cake! The molasses is a good source of iron and calcium, and the eggs are high in protein.
