I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

It certainly feels like a Minnesota winter this week! These cold temperatures call for cozy warm up crock pot meals, like I am sharing with you today!
Reading has always been a passion of mine especially during this year of isolation. I have so appreciated our local library. Routinely I call in a list of books that the staff gather for me to pick up. Last fall as I was unloading my books I brought home I found a small crock pot cook book compiled by the staff of our Martin County Library tucked in at the bottom of the plastic bag under my books! I have tried many of them and they all are make again recopies! Today I am sharing one of the most versatile ones that was submitted by Deb!
4 chicken breasts, frozen or raw
1 pkg. dry Fiesta Ranch dip

Place all ingredients ( chicken on bottom) in slow cooker. Cook 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low. Shred chicken with forks and mix back in.
Use for tacos, enchiladas or serve over rice.
