Delicious and Easy Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner @NinjaKitchen

Nowadays everyone seems to be burning the candle at both ends.  We need to do more, be more and without exception.  I, for one, just can’t do it without making dinners a much more easy process.  I rely on slow cookers (and I have at least 4 at home and 3 in the camper), the pressure cooker and all in one dish meals as much as possible.


This particular recipe is easy to whip up with what you may already have in your kitchen.  Although I didn’t utilize this site with this recipe – I refer to it frequently.  Have you ever heard of  If you haven’t, you’ve got to check it out.  You type in some ingredients you have on hand and the site provides you a selection of recipes that you can create in order to “live out of your pantry”.  That’s just my tip of the day for you – I find it incredibly valuable when I just can’t get to the grocery store or I want to try something new.


For this recipe I used my Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System.  This is an amazing kitchen appliance – truly one I consider a “must have”.  I bring it back and forth from home to the camper – it is just that versatile.



This Cooking System can act like a slow cooker but it also can be used as an oven (I have cooked cakes in it) or a stovetop!  This is perfect for the camper where space is limited!


Today I used it as a slow cooker…  For this recipe you need:

Chicken tenders – I used 3 pounds

1 Large can of Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 Small can of Cream of Chicken Soup

1 Small can of Cream of Celery Soup

Any and all of the vegetables you would like – for me, I use whatever vegetables I have on hand.  The more the merrier.  I use as many as I can fit in the slow cooker to fill it all the way to the top.





Cook in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.  The Ninja 3 in 1 Cooking System allows you to set a time for cooking – not just turn it on and walk away.  When cooking I leave the chicken tenders whole.  When it is done I pull the tenders out, shred them and put them back in.


This recipe allows me to start dinner and run to the barn with plenty of time to take care of the horses as well as to allow the kids to go for a ride on their horse.  Then we come home and dinner is done and ready to eat!


This meal may be eaten as a stew or it can be placed over a bed of rice or noodles and more.  We generally place it over rice.  Be flexible and have fun with it.
