Crock Pot Mistake

Crock Pot Mistake

A Narrative of Correctional Cooking


One busy morning, I decided to prepare a nice casserole in my Crock Pot while I was out for the day.

This is the story of that casserole.

I put 1 box (16 oz) of brown rice in the Crock Pot.

I added 6 cups of water, thinking it would make the rice, well, ricey!

I put in 3 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts (thawed, but it wouldn’t matter, if you cooked it longer).

I added 1 family sized cream of chicken soup and 1 can of water.

I found half an envelope of onion soup mix and mixed that in, too.

I cooked it all day anticipating a yummy casserole.

Time to open it up! It smells great!

Uh, hmm, this doesn’t look right!

It looks like boiled chicken!

Ugh! So… let’s make soup!

I chopped up the chicken, added a bag of frozen broccoli, and a little salt and pepper.

The family loved it!

A new family favorite!

God bless!


Happy at Home

One thought on “Crock Pot Mistake

  1. I can remember years ago when I got my first crockpot I left some chicken in it so long that the bones started to melt. What a horrible feeling in the mouth. UGH! I have improved my skills greatly since then! A crock pot can be a beautiful thing when you know you are going to be out all day and will be starving by the time you get in. It’s wonderful to have the smell of a meal already done greet you when you open your front door!
