I created my Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken and Orzo using Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #CampbellsSkilledSaucers

I love to cook, I know this isn’t news to any of you. BUT I have to say I’m LATE to jumping on the slow cooker bandwagon! It’s not that I don’t WANT to use my slow cooker, I DO!!! But I am NOT a morning person, like at ALL.

I just can’t seem to get it together that early in my day.  I usually roll out of bed in time to get the kids socks and shoes on and rush them to the car, usually still in my pj’s. The day my oldest was old enough to make school lunches was seriously the best!!!

Once I get home (if I’m not running errands) I play with the baby, shower, get dressed and then the rest of the afternoon flys by with blogging work: cooking or baking, photography, editing pictures, writing posts, etc… OR running errands!

Then it’s time to pick up the kids and then take them to their afternoon activities and then it’s home, it’s 5 and I have to rush to get something ready for dinner! THAT’S when I wish I had made the time early to make something in the slow cooker!

So when the chance came up to try out Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauce I jumped at the chance! I got to try a few flavors: Moroccan Spiced Stew, Sweet Korean BBQ and Tavern Style potroast. They tasted great and were so easy!

It was less than 5 mins or prep time. In fact I even put the meat in frozen so I didn’t have to remember to thaw it! Just toss in the protein and sauce with no prep work, serve with some rice, noodles or buns and your good to go, a totally easy slow cooker recipe!

I loved how simple it was AND it’s totally versatile! If you want to add other foods and mix it up a bit you can do that too! My husband thought that the Moroccan spiced stew was a little strong (I loved it, I ate it sloppy joe style on some homemade buns).

So I decided to make it again, this time with some extras. That way it fed more people (we have a somewhat large family) and created a different meal and still had an amazing flavor. A complete meal in one pot is always nice (I’m terrible at remembering side veggies and salads)

I’m excited to try the other slow cooker packages, Hawaiian Luau and Mexican Red Chile Taco! I’ll keep some of these around to toss in with frozen meat on crazy days and I’ll have an easy weeknight dinner!

AND the best part is my 12 YO want’s to start being responsible for dinner once a week. Maybe I’ll take over lunch box duty one day and she can get the slow cooker started for me??? SCORE!

  1. Ooh I haven’t had Moroccan Chicken in so long. Your version looks super yummy

    • Thanks! I actually loved it straight, chicken and the sauce, esp if you like a really strong flavor! But adding all of this just really made something my entire family enjoyed it!

  2. This looks delicious. I have never cooked with orzo. I also love cashews on everything!! Crock pot cooking is my favorite.

  3. That looks so good! Gorgeous photos too. Pinned… can’t wait to try!

  4. mmm, I tried the tavern pot roast and it was delicious. But haven’t had a chance to try the Moroccan chicken yet. This looks delicious, so I can’t wait to give it a try!

  7. This sounds really good! I’m kind of the same way with my slow cooker… it seems like so much more effort to get a meal put together 8 hours earlier than necessary :-P But, I should really do it more often; it’s so nice to come home from work to a fully cooked meal!

  8. Yum! It looks delicious!

  9. I am definitely trying this recipe! On the books for Monday night. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I really have to try this. My husband also tends to be a little shy of strong ethnic spices but I love them so this is happening!

    • You’ll have to let me know what you think! It was really strong straight, but that didn’t bother me. My husband loves other ethnic spices, so it surprised me that he didn’t love Moroccan, but oh well!

  11. I think I will have to try now that I have seen it.
    Looks like it tastes good and it would give more options for dinner,
    I bought a slow cooker several months ago and have only used it once so this would be a great product to try.

    • I need to use mine more, I just don’t think about dinner in the morning very often! ohhh I’m going to get stuff out right now for tomorrow! Glad I’m thinking about it now!
