Staff Pick - Cookbooks

Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook: Feasting With Your Slow Cooker
by Dawn J. Ranck & Phillis Pellman Good

One of my "go to" cookbooks is this gem! What I love it that the recipes are simple to make, use ingredients I have on hand, and they are family friendly. I recently shared one of my favorite recipes with coworkers and they agree it's aptly named!

Chicken Delicious 
(Janice Crist, Quinter, KS) 
Makes 8-12 servings

 4-6 whole skinless chicken breasts, boned and halved, lemon juice, salt to taste, pepper to taste, celery salt to taste, paprika to taste, 10 3/4 oz. can cream of mushroom soup, 10 3/4 oz. can cream of celery soup, 1/3 cup dry sherry, or white wine, grated Parmesan cheese.

  1. Season chicken with lemon juice, salt, pepper, celery salt, and paprika. Place in slow cooker. 
  2. Combine soups with sherry. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with cheese. 
  3. Cook on Low 8-10 hours. 
  4. Serve over rice. 
(I've substituted water or chicken broth for the wine and used cream of mushroom, chicken or celery soups depending on what I have on hand at the time). Comes out great!
