Slow Cooking Thursday for July 12

Here's another of our favorite slow cooker recipes:


6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2 15 1/2 ounce cans great northern beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups sliced fresh carrots
1 cup sliced celery
2/3 cup Italian salad dressing (the light kind works fine)
2 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper

Place the beans, carrots and celery in a 5-quart slow cooker; top with chicken. Combine the Italian dressing and the seasonings; pour this mixture over the chicken. Cover and cook on Low for 4 to 5 hours or until the chicken is cooked and the carrots are tender.

Yield: 6 servings.

This recipe is from Simple & Delicious. It is a very tasty dish! The chicken gets incredibly tender and the flavor is wonderful. I recommend serving this in bowls or soup plates, as it is quite juicy. If you prefer you could serve it with a slotted spoon and use dinner plates, however.

    Sounds nummy, Mrs T.
    All the recipes have sounded good..I am jot sure which ones to try first. I visited your Christmas Blog last, how you are putting such neat things on it. I thought how useful this will be when everyone really starts thinking of Christmas. I am thinking about it, just not doing much about it. Your site will be such a blessing!

    Warmly, Patty

  6. Hi everyone --

    Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do! It's a pleasure to see you all here at my kitchen table.

    Patty -- thanks for the kind words about my Christmas blog! You know I had promised myself that for every day I exercised, I could post there. Well, I've been exercising faithfully but I just have not had the time to post there every day. I have a great idea to share soon. I am so glad I started that blog. It's so much fun and I am glad you are enjoying it too!

    God bless,
