25 Chicken Slow Cooker Recipes

Posted on Aug 11 2015 - 12:49am by Susan Bewley


Do you ever have days where you just don’t feel like cooking? For us, August has traditionally been a very busy month, especially with it being Daniel’s birthday and work for both of us.  While I would love to say I cook a fancy meal after a busy day, it usually ends in us eating out, which isn’t good for either of our weight loss plans. Rather than spend the money (and calories) on fast food, we have decided to spend more time with my trusty slow cooker. Even though I use it a lot during the winter, I rarely think to use it during the summer. This has all changed with us deciding we are eating in more.

Of course, with us eating in more, I have had to go searching for new slow cooker recipes, since some of our favorites were a bit worn out earlier this year.  After a bit of searching and talking to our friends, I found 25 recipes that sounded good to us and we thought you would enjoy too. Since we have a freezer full of Zaycon chicken (btw, if you have a chest freezer, I consider this a must – their breasts are HUGE) I am focusing now on chicken recipes for the slow cooker. Feel free to tell us what you think of our list of these 25 Slow Cooker Chicken Recipes below!

    I love using the slow cooker, it’s more forgiving than the oven. One of my favorites is the chicken with Stove Top stuffing and cream of (whatever) soup. Throw in a few ingredients, turn on the heat and forget it.

    I love chicken and I’m always running out of different ideas of how to prepare it. Living in Florida, I also love to cook in my slow cooker…especially during the hotter summer months! I’m really looking forward to trying some of these recipes. Thank you for sharing!

    That top recipe for the Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Soup looks tasty.

    I bet it would be great when the fall weather finally hits us here. A nice twist on a comfort food.

    I have been looking for a good chicken Dijon recipe. Years ago there was a dry packet mix that made the best sauce ever. I’ve tried a couple of recipes and they didn’t quite taste right.

    We have a slow cooker that I must say has been used only a handful of times. It tuck away underneath one of the kitchen cabinets. After seeing all these recipes I must take it out and get to cooking. The recipes look like they are going to taste delicious

    These are awesome. I’ve run out of ways to make chicken lately. My family could live on chicken alone. 🙂 I’d like to try the Crockpot chicken stew an Chicken corn chowder. Thanks for sharing.

    I have a chicken recipe that my husband loves. One day I decided to have chicken, but was bored with the same old thing. I had alot of vegetables that needed to be used or tossed. I took what was on hand, threw them in a pot with the chicken. I added spices and tomato sauce, crushed and paste. It is really good which is odd because I rarely cook. A lucky mistake I suppose.

    Today I’m making a Cajun chicken and rice. It’s a Zatarain boxed mix, but it’s very tasty. It’s odd that the price of boneless, skinless chicken breast is lower per pound than ground beef is.
