Menu Plan November 7 – Slow-Cooker Meals

By · Print This Post Print This Post

This week’s Gluten-Free Menu Swap is being hosted at Angela’s Kitchen. So, click over to her site to browse all the slow-cooker meals and gluten-free menus compiled this week.

I’m starting my week with slow-cooked Shredded Mexican Chicken. After almost three years and 275 posts, that recipe continues to be one of the most popular posts on Celiac Family. It must be the simple ingredients, the quick prep time, and versatile, flavorful chicken that attract so much interest.

I also have a couple more slow-cooked meals on our menu this week. I loved Angela’s Sweet & Sour Chicken recipe I tried a couple weeks ago, so I’m making it again this week. I’m also going to try cooking chicken with a can of Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup in the slow-cooker. I noticed the words “Gluten Free” on the front label of the soup can last week while shopping. I don’t know why I get so excited by that. But, I do appreciate that “Gluten Free” is getting more attention, so I bought a can. It might be useful for Thanksgiving dishes, too. Here’s the rest of my week:

Every Monday, I make a note of what the next week’s theme is, lose it and somehow still manage to get at least one meal with it in the next week. I have 3 crock pot recipes this week, and just thought this morning that I want to work on a paleo/gf meatball recipe that I can take for potlucks or keep in the freezer. I’m glad some part of my brain is working!


Your menu looks delicious for this week. I remember doing a slow cooker chicken with cream of mushroom soup and sour cream back when we first got married and were both working. It smelled so good to walk into the house after a long day. Have a great week.


I just have to try that Cilantro Lime Shrimp. Yum! I am glad you liked the Sweet and Sour Chicken. It is one of our favorites. 🙂

Hope you have a great week!

I know what you mean, we were excited too. I had my children with me and they were the ones who excitedly pointed out, “look mommy gluten free”. LOL. Progresso has a whole section now with gluten free right on the front of the label. Yay!
