What busy parent doesn't have a pound of chicken breasts in the fridge or freezer? And what busy parent doesn't love the idea of throwing a few ingredients in the slow cooker, turning it on and coming back to a hot, home-cooked meal hours later? With these slow cooker chicken recipes, you can have that with little effort. And the best part is these are the kinds of dishes kids love.
Don't Miss: Healthy Crockpot Recipes
Bone-in chicken pieces are flavored with fresh mushrooms, onions and crisp bacon in this easy, yet elegant recipe. If you buy pre-sliced mushrooms, you don't even have to chop any vegetables to make this one-pot meal.
This recipe is made with skinless, boneless chicken thighs, which have a little more fat and are juicier than chicken breasts. A simple, homemade barbecue sauce adds flavor to this easy recipe. Serve this chicken on toasted hamburger buns with apple pecan coleslaw
on the side.
Frozen lemonade concentrate is the key ingredient that lends a sweet-tart flavor to this tender chicken recipe. Serve with pasta or rice.
I know, I know. Forty cloves of garlic sounds like a lot. But remember, the garlic is cooking low and slow in the Crockpot. This mellows the flavor and makes the garlic sweet. It adds incredible tenderness to the chicken, too. I like to brown the chicken before adding it to the slow cooker (it gives it a nice crust), but if you're in a hurry, feel free to skip that step.

Chicken breasts are cooked in a creamy mushroom sauce with fresh mushrooms and white wine (don't worry - the alcohol cooks out) in this easy recipe. I like to serve this chicken with mashed potatoes

This soup is one of those easy, dump-and-stir recipes that is ideal for busy weeknights. Prepared salsa eliminates the need to chop peppers and onions and add thickeners or seasonings to this hearty soup. Serve this soup topped with a dollop of sour cream and/or tortilla strips.
This kid-friendly casserole is similar to a creamy hash brown casserole, made with frozen hash browns, rotisserie chicken and cream of chicken soup. Crunchy crushed potato chips are the perfect topping for this easy, kid-pleasing recipe.
Coconut milk gives this orange chicken recipe a slight Thai flavor. As with slow cooker recipes, be sure you taste, and season this chicken before serving. The Crockpot tends to water down the seasoning in food over time. I recommend serving this chicken with hot cooked rice
