Being Prepared – Recipe: Sour Cream Crock-Pot Chicken


With busy Fall schedules, I like to have a plan in place.  Whenever I can have dinner going by the time the boys get home from school, I feel like it makes the evening go much smoother.  I do not like it when I am rushing around because that prevents me from soaking up those precious hours from the time school ends until bedtime each night.


Utilizing my crock-pot seems to be very cyclical.  I often use it to cook chicken for soups and casseroles, but I do not always cook a complete entree in it.  However, when I do, I always wonder why I do not use it more often, as a weekly rotation.

This dish gave me the motivation that I needed to start looking for more crock-pot recipes for the fall.  As the days get shorter, I like to have menus in place that allow for more pajama/movie/game/family time in the evenings.  Because, as much as I like to cook, I love family time even more.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe on Skip To My Lou! It is perfect for us tonight, just got home from vacation with not much food in the house (except for these ingredients)! My husband will be so happy we don’t have to eat out tonight. 🙂

  2. i like your food pictures and want to invite you to try out it’s for anyone that just wants another place to submit photos and share it will other foodies. It’s still in beta version, but would love for you to start adding some photos and help get it going.

  3. This sounds so interesting. I haven’t made anything with sour cream in the crock pot like this. I pretty much live by the crock pot as a momma who works full-time. Otherwise we would eat at 10 pm. Thanks for sharing on Hunk of Meat Monday.
