20 Amazing Chicken Slow Cooker Recipes

Posted on Jan 14 2014 - 10:02pm by Susan Bewley

While I love cooking, sometimes I just don't have the time to spend hours in the kitchen, especially during weeks where we have just about everything scheduled. Doctors appointments, hair appointments, birthdays, and just about everything else is coming up in January. Since we are going back to our healthy lifestyle after the holidays, this also means we are trying to avoid restaurants as much as possible. Luckily, I have my handy dandy slow cooker always on the counter, waiting to be save the day! Since one of our local groceries usually has a great sale on chicken breast at least once a month, I usually stock up and freeze chicken when I can. Before throwing it in the freezer, I usually trim it, making it convenient for those mornings when I just want to throw everything in the slow cooker and go!

Like many other ladies, I have my favorite recipes that I fall back on when I just can't figure out what to cook. Obviously I love these recipes, but sometimes – you just want something a bit different, you know? As I was visiting my friend's blogs and Pinterest, I came across some amazing chicken slow cooker recipes that sound amazing, but taste just as good! Knowing that some of you struggle like me, I have shared 20 of my favorite slow cooker recipes that I'm sure every family will love!

    making that Brunswick Stew from Atta Girl, sounds great, I have a frezzer full of left over veggies and I am going to add them, this reminds me of eating Brunswick Stew at the Old Hicklory House in Atlanta, Georgia many years ago, could not beat it, was so great and they always had it available.  Can't find it out here in Oklahoma, unless in a can..lol

    It can't get any easier to make a delicious meal in a slow cooker (so wonderful to just fix it and forget it and the smell permiates the entire house ) MMMMM !

    My slow cooker is a lifesaver!  I love throwing something in it at night, plugging it in the next morning, and coming home to a delicious hot meal.

    I also love my slow cooker but do tend to make the same things over and over. So thank you for this awesome list. I think I'll be trying out the green chicken chili since it's still cold out. And the next will be the slow cooker chicken tacos. Who doesn't love tacos?!!
