I spent some time today sorting through my favorite recipes for crockpot chicken recipes. Here are some that may or may not have been on the site. All these recipes I have used in the past and liked them.

Crockpot Salsa Chicken Recipe

4 3-oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cans whole kernel corn
1 jar (12 oz.) salsa (chunky is best)
1 red or green bell pepper sliced

Drain corn, set juice aside. Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Place chicken breasts on the bottom of crockpot. Pour salsa on top of chicken then top with pepper slices. Pour cans of corn on top and add just a little of the drained corn juice. (You can add more corn juice if it starts looking dry during cooking. I add only about 1/2 cup overall.) Cook for 5 hours on low or 1 hour on high and 3 hours on low.

Note: I used mild salsa sauce.

This message is for Athena in DE. I would like to try your recipe for Mini Tuna Casseroles that was posted in the newsletter for 8/11/14. Is there anything else I could substitute for the crushed potato chips?

I didn't send this recipe in but I think you can substitute Panko bread crumbs if it was just a topping or cornflakes. If you don't have either, you could just sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top. You could actually not put anything on top and it would still be good.

To take deviled eggs to a potluck, put each half in a mini paper cupcake liner The mini cup is just the right size, and there is less mess for the person eating the egg.

I'm looking for a crockpot recipe for pulled chicken. I've often fixed a pork roast and pulled (or shredded) that but I'd like to try chicken and I'm not sure how to cook the chicken. Is it just basically poaching the chicken breasts?
Thanks for the help.

How can you store granulated sugar, if you buy extra bags on sale?? I tried putting them in the freezer, and that did not turn out well, at all. Any ideas??
Thanks, Sue

I am looking for a good recipe for pull aparts….does any of you good cooks out there have one? Thanks Nancy for all of your hard work on the newsletter….I enjoy it every day!
Thanks!! Melissa from South Dakota

I must have missed the replies, but I wanted to know if you use the same amount of Truv'ia as you would Splenda?
Also, does anyone have a recipe for hot chicken salad, for sandwiches, using canned chicken and chicken soup.?
I think it was on a can of chicken a long time ago. I hope I don't miss the requests. thanks and have a good day.

Good evening Nancy,
I absolutely love the newsletter. I'm always glad to see "clone" recipes as many of us can't afford to go out to eat often and really want to make restaurant food at home.
Dianne in Wisconsin

I need salt free recipes for my husband who is on a drastically reduced sodium diet. I cannot use even a pinch of salt in his food. I need recipes and ideas that are also tasty without using salt. Is there anyone who cooks tasty food without salt in Nancyland?

Thank you Marilyn in FL for the recipe for Apple Tomato Relish Recipe for my sour apples.
Betty in ME.

Sue in TN mentioned that my very sour apples could be crabapples. Mine are full size apples but they are just as sour as crabapples. I wonder if I could make a pickled crabapple recipe with them. It seems like because of their the size it might not work. Judy in Montana sent in a pickled crabapple recipe, if that was for me thank you very much.

This is for Henry in Midland regarding Sam's Club pizza. Yes, you can freeze it without cooking. We cut the pizza in slices then put in freezer bags and pop them into the freezer. When we feel like having pizza, we take it out of the freezer without defrosting and put it on a cookie sheet. We then cook it per the instructions on the pizza packaging. They are so good.

Hi Nancylanders,
My granddaughter and husband left a red crayon in a pocket, and I washed and dried the clothes. There are dried pink stains on all the pants and shirts. Does anyone out there know how to get these stains out? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Marsha M Los Angeles, CA

Does any one of you wonderful cooks out there know how to use "meringue powder"? I was given a large container of it but no instructions as to how to use it. I know it can replace eggs for meringue, but have no idea what to do with it or how to use it in other ways.
Thanks, Sandra from Oregon

I need some help with our cold storage. The problem is that we have one (for nearly 10 years now) and I don't know what types of things to put in it or whether or not I need shelves in it. Also, when it was repaired just this week (it is located under the front entrance of our house which needed repair) vents were installed. Does this make the space unusable? I am wondering if this will bring cause things to freeze during the winter.

Does anyone have a recipe for Mexican sweet bread, I ate a roll today from a Mexican food store today, it was so good.
thank you, Annie
