We eat a LOT of chicken each week in our house, and I love using the Crock-Pot year-round, so I’ve gathered more than two dozen Crock-Pot chicken recipes you may want to try this school year!
I received a slow cooker for Christmas a few years ago. The Crock-pot I owned prior to my current one was my mom’s and it was incredibly old, but it worked! I have this one and it has really held up for us. We use it at least once a week, and there are many weeks that we just keep the slow cooker out for multiple nights of use.
Is it OK to put raw chicken in the slow cooker?
Absolutely! I often thaw chicken overnight and add it to the Crock-pot in the morning for 6-8 hours on low, depending on the recipe. I’m not a fan of slow cooker recipes that require me to pre-cook the meat before slow cooking. That doesn’t save me a ton of time!
How long does it take to slow cook chicken?
It can take 3-4 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low when slow cooking chicken, so definitely plan accordingly. (If you have a programmable slow cooker, it will often switch over to the “warm” setting so you don’t burn anything and it’s ready when you’re ready to sit down to eat.
Why use the Crock-pot?
I don’t have a ton of time to prepare a sit down meal every night of the week for my family, so the Crock-pot saves me so much time. I find I can make healthier meals when I’m slow cooking them and the cleanup is generally kept to a minimum, saving me even more precious time. When school is in session, I rely on the Crock-pot more than I should probably admit. And I love it.
After checking out this list, I would love to hear from you if you have any additional chicken recipes I need to try in my slow cooker! My husband and I love eating chicken, and I want to take advantage of any time saving recipes I can find!
