 The weather is getting cooler so I figured it was time to start making some more comfort food – I received a crockpot for review just in time for the fall season!  I’ve never really been big on using a slow-cooker aside from a few recipes but I’ve come to realize that more than half the recipes I make could be easily made in a Crock-Pot with much less effort and I can do things instead of hovering over the hot stove all day.

Along with the Crock-Pot I was sent some CrockPot® Seasoning Mixes.  Just a small note they do contain A LOT of sodium.  For the amount of water used in the Savory Herb Chicken Packet I felt that it was too much for my family so I instead turned it into a soup.  It calls for 3/4 cup of water and I ended up using about 6 cups of water.  It tastes just as delicious and possibly even better!  I added lots of vegetables and of course chicken so the flavor is definitely good – so if you’re concerned about the sodium content there’s definitely ways around it :)

The seasoning mixes come in BBQ Pulled Pork, Hearty Beef Stew, Savory Herb Chicken, Savory Pot Roast, and Beef Stroganoff.

I did make a soup with the Savory Herb Chicken, however you could easily serve it over rice or even a bed of quinoa to change it up a bit!

I’ll be sharing my recipe for the soup we made so if you want to make you can easily do it, BUT until then I wanted to tell you guys about an amazing contest that Crock-Pot has going on right now!   It started on September 26th and runs until October 17th!  It’s a recipe contest so all you need to do is whip something up in your Crock-Pot and use one of the seasoning mixes to enter!  The grand prize is a free year of groceries worth $8,500 plus a year supply of CrockPot® Seasoning Mixes!  So go hurry up and enter!!  There will be 10 semi-finalists and then it goes into voting on October 28th until November 14th.  The winner will be announced on November 21st.

You can also win your very own Crock Pot right here! One lucky reader will win a Crock Pot and a 3 Month Supply of CrockPot® Seasoning Mixes!

    I love the ease of throwing in a packet mix and using the crockpot to have supper ready when I get home after work. I would probably add some rice or buttery noodles and put the savory herb chicken on top :) Yum!

  2. says

    I would like to try the seasoning on my traditional pot roast to bring it up a notch. I’d also like to try some new recipes I have like southwest chicken. My crock pot is a mini (1.5qt) so this would be such a blessing for me :)

  3. says

    I would make the Hearty Beef Stew and depending on how it tastes may add some grape juice (a subtitute for wine) or tomato sauce. To make the meal special I would make some home made bread and a cake for dessert.

  4. says

    I’d love to try the hearty beef stew – except I’d probably turn it into a veggie stew, I haven’t had beef stew (or minus the beef veggie stew lol) since my dad passed since he was the one to always make it for us. I love beef stew… I’m just not crazy about the meat (any) so I tend to leave it out of things like this.

  5. says

    I might mix it with sour cream and add it to chicken and egg noodles….making it a creamy chicken and noodle casserole. Or I could even mix it with ranch and make an interesting veggie dip!

  6. says

    I think I would just use it according to package directions the first time. Once I know how it tastes and all that, then I think I would probably tweak it a little bit.

  7. says

    I’d like to try the Hearty Beef Stew seasoning mix. Beef stew is one of my favorite slow cooker meals, and I like to make it extra-special by adding parsnips when they’re in season.

  8. says

    I love to use seasoning packets as a base for the flavors and add to it depending on what we are having. If it is a beef roast, I use the seasoning pack, some of my own seasonings and veggies!

  9. Tami Vollenweider says

    I’m a fan of the Hearty Beef Stew! I’d add some red onions,and some rotel tomatoes to give it some extra taste!

  10. Lilia Kharabora says

    Mmmm Barbecue pulled Pork! Add some smoky paprika to it. Thank you for the chance. Good giveaway, I really need one!

  11. Crystal Sell says

    I would add the seasoning with the chicken, then add some veggies, pasta, and broth to make a great stew for the coming cold weather.

    I love anything cooking slow, the beauty of dinner and a welcoming, comfortable house after coming in from the cold! Stews and chilis of all kinds are our favorite!

  13. Karen D says

    I, too, would be concerned about the sodium levels, so I think I’d follow your lead and add lots of water and veggies and make a soup

  14. Ashleigh Thomas says

    So let me start by saying ive grown up on crock pot meals my mother and grandmother are very in to stews and chili’s, all year long we used ours was great coming home to the warm smell of food after a long day of school and play, my grandmother is 95 years old and still makes barley beef soup in her crackpot every year for thanksgiving and we all watch its a wonderful life I know she wont be around long and would love to use this Crock pot give away provided by Courtney’s sweets to carry on the traditional barley beef stew along with the Philadelphia cream cheese and Hormel chili dip to of my Grandmothers favorites

  15. Terry says

    I would make a pot roast using the Savory Pot Roast seasoning along with gravy mix and vegetables for a delicious fall meal.

  16. Alycia says

    I would also add some dark chocolate and brown sugar to the chili packet to make it a little bit of a deeper flavor.

  17. Michelle Tucker says

    I’d use the savory herb chicken packet and add lots of root veggies to the pot. I think it’d be great with the herb chicken.

  18. Melinda Stephens says

    I’d love to use the hearty Beef Stew packet. I have really bad luck with stews and they always end up bland. I’d still add tons of garlic and onions to my stew though.
