1 sliced onion
1 cut one stock of celery up
1 whole chicken (these are usually only $4 or less)
Remove insides of chicken. Rub the chicken with season salt and pepper inside and out. Fill the inside of the chicken with onion and celery. Place the remaining onion and celery on the bottom of the crockpot and then place the chicken on top. This is what it will look like:
Chicken n Dumplins:
Pull Crockpot out of the fridge and add enough water to almost fill it up. You want to save room for your dumplins. I add about 4 chicken bouillon cubs to mine to give it some taste. Let that cook all day on low. About 2 hours before you are going to eat...make your dumplins. (Thanks Jay)
2 Cups flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp. butter
1 c. milk
In a saucepan mix butter and milk until butter melts. Add to dry ingredients. Roll out on floured surface. Cut into about 1 inch strips and just toss those babies in the crockpot! I try to push them down into the soup a little to get them wet. TURN CROCKPOT ON HIGH for the last 2 hours and this is what you get!!
SO there you go...2 simple meals that are cheap!! Enjoy and let me know if you try it!!
