Lazy Slow Cooker Meals

I haven't been well lately so I suppose I should call this post Crock Pot Meals for sick people.   Ah maybe not!

I love slow cooker meals but when you aren't well you want something that doesn't need much preparation as well as cooking itself.  Yeah well it can be done and I have done it.  I found that McCormick and Maggi and I am sure other companies have brought out a range of crock pot/slow cooker recipe bases which are just perfect for this time.

Just make sure you have all the ingredients and add it all to the slow cooker.  Easy.  I like Chicken Chasseur with chicken pieces, an onion, sliced mushrooms and tomato paste and the recipe base of course. Add the base with some water and pour over the rest of the ingredients into the crock pot.  Cook for 8 hours on low and you have your meal.

Next you have a sick house then make up these bases and presto you have dinner.  No one needs to leave the house to go get it.  Just serve with bread, toast, rice, pita bread or pasta or mixed vegetables.
