I still have a couple of family favorites around before I have to resort to actually trying new recipes so I can find new favorites to post! It's a good thing too--I have done absolutely no cooking this week due to spring break. It's been fun, but I think by next week I'll be ready to get back to it.
My family loves this crockpot shredded chicken sandwich recipe. It's good, soothing comfort food at its finest, and again, it's Mom friendly. It can be prepared ahead and reheated, it keeps for several days, and it can be frozen. When reheating, sometimes I add a little bit of chicken broth, or even water in a pinch, to keep the consistency right. It can be frozen in a big block, or for individual servings, freeze it in an ice cube tray, then pop out the cubes and store in the freezer in a freezer bag. They reheat in the microwave really quickly that way. My DS and DD like to take these sandwiches to school for lunch too. I just heat the filling in the morning, put it in a warmed up thermos and put a bun in their lunch. At lunchtime they just make up their sandwich, and they're good to go. Like I said, it's very mom-friendly! I hope you enjoy it too.Crockpot Chicken Sandwiches
1 can (50 oz) boned chicken, undrained (I much prefer the GFS brand of chicken, what I get in the grocery store often more closely resembles cat food--I think I would prefer to use 3lbs. of chicken that I cook myself and shred, than use the supermarket canned chicken again. When I prepare chicken like this, I just put the chicken, still frozen, in the crockpot the night before and let it cook all night on low. In the morning, it's ready to use.)
1 10 3/4 oz. can cream of chicken soup (low-fat, low sodium work fine)
1 sleeve (inner package) buttery oval crackers, such as Town House, crushed (low-fat work fine Ritz work too.)Mix all ingredients together in slow cooker. Cook on low 4 hours. Serve on buns. Makes a bunch! My family really enjoys these on wheat buns, especially mini ones like Aunt Millie's Whole Grain Dinner Rolls. (no, I'm not paid to say that, it's just what we like!)
