I need to use my crockpot more - I am retired and do not enjoy cooking much anymore. Just my son and I here - and thankfully he is easy to please. I think you are inspiring me - the chicken strips with veggies sounds good. Will try today - I have a chicken breast thawed out in the fridge right now.

Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm on my 4th rectangular one! Love it. I keep breaking the glass lids though! I don't know that they make them any more. Mom got one years ago & I loved it because instead of the settings being low & high ...these could be set anywhere from keeping warm to various settings from low, medium, high.
One of recipes I like with roast beef is to add carrots, potatos, a can of mushroom soup & a package of liptons onion soup mix. So yummy!
I do add extra veggies now also.

I have a crockpot that my Mother and Mother-in-law gave me in about 1975 and i still use it - lots. Mostly i put in a small roast and then layer veggies on top. So easy!! The little recipe booklet that came with it has lots of great recipes too.

Xtra veggies are always a good idea. I love corned beef & cabbage & my friend had fixed it a week or 2 ago & I could hardly wait until St Patty's day to fix it.
Chicken breast (or whole chicken) add veggies, potatos with tomato sauce or enchilada sauce chicken broth or just water with a boullion cube or two is easy & nourishing & tasty also. I always remove skin from chicken if I've bought a whole chicken. Instead of potato add yams or sweet potato. Yum! Sounds like a plan!

i say mix it up! especially like to add extra veggies to a casserol or hot dish, when i use my slow cooker i like to find ways to add extra veggies. other times i may even replace a starch for a non starchy veggie.

Don't forget to be awesome.

St Patty's Day I put my corned beef in crockpot then baby red potatos, an onion quartered, cabbage cut in 6ths, and baby carrots & half a cup of water. The corned beef had a flavor packet with it & I added that. Covered & cooked all day. Very tasty.

I think both are good depending on what you are putting in the all in one dish.

If you do what you always do, you will get what you always get. To get something different you have to do what you never did.

I am curious how you guys feel about all in one dishes as opposed to the starch dish and the veggie dish and then the meat/protein dish?
