Crockpot cooking is super-duper easy and there are tons of recipes that you can adapt for the Medifast plan. If you want my recipe collection, drop me an email and I'll send it to you: (quirkyiq at yahoo dot com). I love the crockpot curried califlower recipe I have...yum!..
Please send your email to this address:.
I've had to create a group in order to make the recipes available to everyone who has requested them, as Yahoo limits the number of emails I can send per hour (in order to reduce spam...no pun intended )...
4 chicken breast halves.
1/4 cup ketchup.
1/4 cup diet cola, or Diet Dr. Pepper.
1/4 cup finely chopped onion.
1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper.
Dash garlic powder.
Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Arrange chicken breast halves in crockpot. Combine ketchup, cola, onion, green pepper and garlic powder; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours. Serve chicken with sauce..
Divide into 4 servings & each gives you one of your Lean + 1/8 cup towards your Green..
I love crock pot turkey breast my mom found the recipe from frugal gourmet years ago..
1 boneless turkey breast, rub with butter (now I use a little olive oil).
Season to taste.
Put in crock pot with a couple of stalks of celery, 1 small onion, and a carrot.
Cook on low 6-8 hours.
There's no liquid added, yet it turns out surpisingly moist and tender. This can also be done with chicken..
Another favorite is to put a couple of cans of hot rotel tomatoes, a couple of cans of hot green chilies, and a packet of lipton onion soup with a pork or beef roast in the crock pot for 8-10 hours until it shreds...
Put lean roast or skinless chicken in crock pot ... add about a cup of water.. and whatever spices you want... cook for 5 to 7 hours on high or 6 to 10 hours on low...
Yummmyy we do this a lot.. just make sure you use lean.. because it's hard to get all the fat out of it once's it's cooked....
When I'm stuck for a dinner idea I stick a pork tenderloin in the crock pot. I find if I put it in around 11 am on low it is done by 5:30 ish and isn't so overdone that it falls apart. I usually buy the ones that are pre-seasoned. I'm thinking about adding some of the Medifast soups to it next time (need to use those puppies up somehow!)..
In my pre-MF days I used to put a little bit of water on the bottom of the pot, can of condensed cream of celery soup over the pork along with some sliced onion and cook it all day that way. Boy is that good...
I love mexican food so while on Medifast I occasionally make the following to either put on a green salad or eat as is:.
1 6-8 lb pork butt.
2 pkgs taco seasoning (chicken fajitas works or any mexican seasoning).
1 can tomatoes with diced green chili.
Put all into crockpot on low for several hours. Shread pork butt (carnitas) with a fork and freeze into individual serving size protions..
You can also use this with boneless chicken breasts. I emphasize BONELESS! :-)..
I love to use my crock pot and always looking for new recipes. Really nice to come home from work and have dinner already. These all sound great...
