1 cup uncooked noodles
vegetable oil (canola)
1 cup cubed ham
1 can condensed cream of chicken
1 can whole kernel corn drained (8 oz.)
1 tbsp pimento chopped
1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
1/4 cup green pepper chopped
Cook noodles according to package directions until barely tender (I do approximately. 5 to 6 minutes). Drain and toss with just enough oil to coat. ( 3 tsp ) Add noodles and remaining ingredients to a greased Crock Pot and stir to mix. Cover and cook on LOW setting 7 to 9 hours.
1 (8oz) box Zatarain’s Yellow Rice, cooked according to package.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, or cheese blend
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10.5oz) can cream of chicken soup
1 (15oz) can of corn, drained
2 cups chicken stock
Place chicken into crockpot and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle your chopped onions on top of chicken.
Mix together the two cups of chicken broth and can of cream of chicken soup. Pour mixture over chicken.
Cover and cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or HIGH for 4 hours.
Right before serving, shred chicken with 2 forks. Add in cooked & prepared Zatarain’s rice, cheese and corn. Mix well, until cheese is melted.
5 medium-sized potatoes
3 tablespoons of butter
3 tablespoons white flour
1 clove of garlic peeled and minced
1 onion peeled and sliced
1 cup of milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Wash and peel your potatoes. I’ve heard a lot of people just peel their potatoes without washing them because… if you’re going to peel the skin off, why wash them? Well let’s see… potatoes grow in the DIRT and they are DIRTY. Seems like common sense, but if you don’t wash them BEFORE peeling them, you’ll get little specs of dirt on your peeled potatoes.
Slice potatoes into discs, roughly half a centimeter thick. For all my non-metric friends out there, think 2-3 silver dollars stacked on top of each other.
Line the bottom of your slow cooker pot with the first layer of potato slices, add salt and pepper to your taste or dietary liking, then add the next layer of potato slices and add salt and pepper again. Repeat this process until you’re out of potato slices or you get tired of doing it, whichever comes first.
Melt butter in a pot set on medium heat. As soon as the butter is melted, whisk in flour until the mixture becomes thick and doughy. Add sliced onions and minced garlic. Keep on whisking and gradually add the milk.
Add the shredded cheese and continue whisking until you have something thick, but smooth, or get tired of whisking, whichever comes first. Let’s be real, having pockets of semi-melted cheese in your dish can be a treat.
Pour your cheese sauce into the slow cooker pot on top of the layered potatoes. You may need to tip the pot back and forth so the sauce gets everywhere.
Cook on “high” in the slow cooker for ~3 hours, and then check every 15-30 minutes until you can easily poke through the potatoes with a fork. Use chives for garnish.
