If you’re looking for a way to change up your go-to chicken dinners, it may time to dust off your trusty slow cooker. Not to be confused with the different but equally useful Instant Pot, slow cookers like Crock-Pots create an insulated environment where you can cook your meal on a low heat for a longer period of time. The result? Some tender and juicy chicken — no matter what recipe you use.
From light and lean Asian-inspired sesame garlic chicken to rich and creamy buffalo chicken dip, your Crock-Pot can turn uncooked chicken into just about any type of meal that you’re craving. And the best part about making a slow cooker recipe is that your mighty cookware does all the work for you — just sit back, relax, and wait for your chicken to be ready in time for dinner. Whether you’re feeding a crowd, meal planning, or just looking a way to spice up your daily diet, here are the easiest and most creative Crock-Pot chicken recipes to cycle into your diet.
