Swiss Chicken Casserole II
We had this for dinner a few nights ago. I made it in the slow cooker with partially frozen thinly sliced chicken breasts.I cooked on high for 2 hours and then turned down to low for 2. I'm only giving it 4 stars because you couldn't really taste the swiss cheese...My crock pot cooks very quickly and I think I may have over cooked it! I will be making this again, but will only cook on low for 4 hours. It really was delicious and I think it will be 5 stars with the adjustment. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast
I made this for dinner last night and it was fabulous! I even put the turkey breast in frozen....I used a 3 lb. frozen Butterball turkey breast, added the onion soup, cooked on high for 2 hours, then turned down to low for another 2 hours....Wow! It was great. I was worried about not adding any liquid, but since the turkey was frozen, I figured that might give it enough moisture..After the 4 hours, I took out the turkey, removed the netting and wrapped it in foil to keep warm while I added the gravy packet that came with the turkey and some water with about 2 tbsp of flour to the slow cooker. Turned up the heat to high and left it for a half hour. Gravy came out great and breast was ready to slice. I served with mashed potatoes and corn. Everyone raved about how moist the turkey was. Thank you for the recipe. This is one I will use over and over again.** Addition** 2/11/09--I have made this a few more times and added a can of cranberries to the slow cooker with the onion soup.WOW! My family loves it and it is a super easy meal to make. Thanks again for the recipe.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
This was absolutely delicious, just like the beef stew my Mom used to make. I did make a few adjustments....I added about a half a tsp. more of the paprika. Halway through, I added an additional tsp. of salt and an additonal tsp of minced garlic( I tasted it and thought it needed it.)I also added fresh string beans about an hour before it was ready. I cooked on high for 6 hours. The beef was tender and the vegetables perfect! This is a wonderful meal. Thank you so much for this recipe. I looked at other beef stew recipes and finally chose this one to try. I'm glad I did!
