Crockpot Ranch Chicken

I absolutely LOVE crockpot meals.  In most cases, you just throw your ingredients in to the crockpot and wait for everything to cook up!  It’s easy, and it’s such a time saver!  It’s also great, because I can throw everything together early in the day when I’m less busy, and I can be at ease, knowing that dinner will be on the table, without me having to scramble around in the evening.

And most crockpot meals go a long way.  I can cook and have a couple of days of leftovers, or I can freeze the leftovers to use for another day.  Today I’m sharing a recipe for Crockpot Ranch Chicken!  I love anything flavored with ranch, and this particular recipe also uses my favorite vegetables: carrots and potatoes.   [Read more…]

If you read my blog frequently, you know that my family and I love to watch football on Saturday, and we always like to have something delicious to go along with the game.  For us, this usually means that we’re eating something greasy or spicy, or both!  And unfortunately, as much as I love those foods, they can take a toll on your stomach.  For that reason, I always take Nexium® 24HR, so that I can stop heartburn before it starts.  Today I’m going to discuss why I love Nexium® 24HR, and I’m going to share a delicious homegating recipe for Crockpot Chicken Tacos.

Nexium® 24HR is for the treatment of frequent heartburn.  It should be taken every day for best results, and it may take 1 to 4 days for full effect. You should always read the product packaging and refer to the company’s website before taking the product.

I’ve always found the product to be very effective against my own heartburn, and I love that you just take one pill.  And it is also the #1 choice of Doctors and Pharmacists* for their own frequent heartburn.” *Among PCPs and Pharmacists who use a branded OTC PPI.

The 42 count package is also actually organized in to three 14-count bottles.  I find this more convenient than a larger bottle.  And if you have more than one person in your household who takes the medication, then you can each have your own bottle.

Nexium® 24HR is in the healthcare section at Walmart.  You can find it in the stomach care aisle, and right now you can find a special display for the 42 count package. The product is available in capsule and tablets.  And on top of Walmart’s every day low prices, the 42 count box currently has a $3 off coupon that you can pull off and use right at the register.

As promised, I also have a tailgating recipe!  My family just loves tacos and Mexican food, and so I’m always looking for new recipes with a little Mexican flavor!  I also love looking for new recipes that allow me to use my crockpot, so this one is right up alley.

 

crockpot-chicken-taco-meat

This recipe features skinless, boneless chicken breasts and a few simple ingredients!  Like most crockpot recipes, you can whip this up in the morning and allow it to cook until you are ready to serve, or you can even cook up your meat the night before and just reheat it the next day.

Then after you meat is prepared, you just add your favorite tortillas or chips, and serve your tacos or taco salads up with all the fixings!

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Ingredients:

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6)

2 cups chicken broth (Additional broth may be necessary. See recipe for details.)

1 package taco seasoning

1 package ranch dressing seasoning

Additional Items and Optional Toppings:

hard tortillas, soft tortillas, or corn chips

shredded cheese

salsa

lettuce

tomatoes

olives

peppers

taco sauce

Directions:

Spray crockpot with non-stick cooking spray. Pour chicken broth into the crockpot Add taco seasoning and ranch dressing mix. Stir until well blended Place chicken breasts in the crockpot with the broth and seasonings (You should use about 6, give or take one or two, depending on the size of the chicken breasts).

Cook for 3-4 hours on high or 7-8 hours on low, or until chicken is cooked through and pulls apart easily with a fork. Stir occasionally during cooking to make sure chicken breasts are well covered with the liquid, so they do not dry out. You may add additional broth if your chicken is not well covered at the start of cooking, or just use less chicken, if necessary.

Once your chicken is cooked through, take out a serving dish and remove your chicken, one or two pieces at a time from the crockpot. Use a knife and fork to pull chicken apart.

Once all of your chicken is pulled apart in the serving dish, pour broth/sauce mixture from the crockpot into the serving dish, and stir the chicken and sauce together. (This will help to add flavor and keep your chicken moist.)

Heat up your tortillas and prepare your toppings. Then assemble and serve tacos.
