Crockpot Chicken Italiano

What a whirlwind weekend we've had! We've been looking for a house to move to that is bigger than our little apartment. On a whim, on Friday, we took a drive through a neighborhood that we hadn't considered before. We ended up finding a nice house. It's an old house with lots of charm. The owners have taken really good care of the house and have made the necessary updates along the way. We will be in a neighborhood with good schools - in fact, my son is so excited because their middle school is new! We are tired, but it looks like things might just have worked out for us. Time to pack and get ready to move! We are moving at the end of this month.

We had a lot of running around to do today so I threw dinner into the crockpot at 2:00 this afternoon. It's nice to know that at the end of a busy day that you have a hearty meal to sit down to.

I made my version of Crockpot Chicken Italiano:

1 - 8 oz package of sliced mushrooms
1 lg. can of italian tomatoes with Italian seasonings
3 TBSP minced garlic
1 lg. can of plum tomatoes
1 can of Rotel tomatoes, medium spice OR you can use spicy if you like it hot
3-4 frozen chicken breasts
1 can of corn, drained
2 cans of green beans, drained

Into a 5 qt. crockpot , stir together the first 5 ingredients. Drop in frozen chicken breast and stir well to cover the chicken. Cover with the lid and cook for 3 1/2 hrs. on high.

At this time stir in corn and green beans. Continue cooking for another 30 minutes to 1 hr. - depending on the size of the chicken breasts. The ones that I used weren't that big and were fully cooked at 4 hrs.

Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove the breasts to a plate and shred the meat using two forks. Stir the shredded chicken back into the crockpot.

This can be served alone, with fresh Parmesan cheese shredded on top, or over pasta or rice.

For dessert there's chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. lol! We're having brownies (mix) and chocolate ice cream.

Could there be a better invention than the crock pot?!?!? I think not!
