Casserole Crock

So I've been playing with my new crock pot.  I already did the tater-topped casserole, but here's another one.  I've also been working on simply converting my casserole recipes over.  This is a great resource.  I find that doing a casserole in the oven (which often takes an hour to bake) is hard to scheduled for me (sports pick up and whatnot) many nights so being able to have this on, cooking, while I do pick ups is nice. I've been working through my regular casserole recipes and so far haven't had any issues. 

Chicken Rice Casserole
Modified from Campbell's Crock Pot Recipe book (that comes with the casserole crock)

1 can (10.75 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 1/3 cups water
3/4 cup uncooked white rice
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
2 ups frozen mixed vegetables
1 1/4 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Stir soup, water, rice, onion powder, black pepper and vegetables in the removable stoneware of the casserole crock pot.  Top with chicken.  Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours (or low for 5-6 hours) or until chicken is cooked and rice is tender.  Top with cheese. Let stand, covered; for 10 minutes.  Stir the rice mixture before serving.

Makes 4 servings.

This was also a new casserole recipe I found and I did it in the casserole crock, on high, for 3-4 hours versus the instructions here. 

Chicken Tater Tot Casserole
Modified from Gonna Want Seconds

2 cans of cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp lemon juice
8 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1 (1 oz) packet ranch dressing mix
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp parsley
3 cups chicken, cooked and diced
1 pkg frozen mixed vegetables
1 (32 oz) pkg frozen tater tots
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheesed, shredded

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray a 9 by 13 pan with Pam.  Set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, combine soup, sour cream, milk, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, bacon, ranch dressing mix, pepper and parsley until thoroughly combined.  Stir in chicken and vegetables.  Transfer to baking dish.  Top with tater tots then cheese. 

Cover the casserole and bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes.  Uncover and bake 5-10 minutes or until through and golden. 

Makes 6 servings.
