Poppyseed Chicken--in the crockpot!

Poppyseed Chicken

4-5 Chicken Breasts
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 16oz sour cream
2 tablespoons poppyseeds
2 sleeves of Ritz crackers
1 stick melted butter

Put frozen chicken and about 1/2 cup of water in the crockpot. Cook on low for about 4-6 hours (until cooked all the way through) OR on high for about 2 (how I do it). Drain the water and cut up chicken breasts. Spray crockpot with non stick spray and add chicken back into dish. Add cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and poppyseeds. Cook for 2 hours on low. When you are ready to put your rolls on, take the crockpot (the dish inside the main thing) sprinkley your Ritz crackers on top and pour melted butter on top. Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 until crackers are brown. This is SO yummy!

Spaghetti Pie

This recipe comes from my dear friend, Sonja. I made this yesterday, froze half of it and we ate the other half last night. Everyone...including sometimes picky Boy1, loved it.

Spaghetti pie
1 lb spaghetti
1 lb ground beef
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Garlic powder to taste
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper (I don't use b/c my fam won't eat)
1 jar pasta sauce
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped green onions (again I don't use)
1/2 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese

Brown beef - drain & crumble. Put beef in skillet, stir in salt, pepper,
garlic powder, bell pepper & pasta sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and
simmer 20 minutes.

In small bowl combine sour cream, green onions, and cream cheese and set
aside. Coat a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray and add cooked
spaghetti. Spread cream cheese mixture over it, cover with meat mixture and
sprinkle with cheddar cheese.

Then I freeze.
