Crock Pot Heaven

We often talk with clients about planning ahead of time. Part of planning for success is preparing meals for the week. Looking in your refrigerator and having it filled with awesome meals stocked away in containers will be a sure fire way to stick with successful eating. Preparing meals can be time consuming unless you plan accordingly.  So, here are a few delicious recipes that will help you save on time!

Pork Spare Ribs
Pork Spare Ribs (wait for them to go on sale at your local market)
3 Green Apples (I usually go with Granny Smith)
1 Sweet Onion
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
½ tsp. Nutmeg

Slice the granny smith apples and place half at the bottom of the crock pot. Chop the onion and place half the onion at the bottom of the crock pot. Place the spare ribs in on top of the apples and onions. Cover the spare ribs with the remaining apples and onions. Cover the apples and onions with the cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and pepper.  Turn your crock pot on low for 7 – 9 hours. Let the aroma of the cinnamon and nutmeg fill your house when you get home from work and enjoy!  I haven't used nutmeg and cinnamon in this combo in awhile.  I usually do a packet of McCormick's BBQ seasoning.

Chicken Chili
4 Chicken Breast
2 Cups Chili Green Sauce or Verde Sauce
6 Tomatillos
2 jalapenos, seeds and ribs removed
4 Cloves of garlic (diced)
1 Tsp. Onion Powder

Place the chicken breast in the crock pot. Cover the chicken with green chili sauce. Quarter the tomatillos and place inside the crock pot along with the jalapenos and garlic cloves. Cover and cook on low for 6 – 7 hours.

Mexican Chicken
3-4 Chicken Breast
1 medium sized whole onion
1 green pepper
1 can of rotel
Season with either: salt pepper and tonys or McCormick's Taco Seasoning

Place chicken in crock pot.  Cover chicken with seasoning first.  Add bell pepper, onion and rotel.
