Steel cut oatmeal is heartier than oatmeal made with rolled oats, which allows it to hold up during the long, slow cooking process. This steel cut oatmeal is not only a healthy Crockpot recipe, it's also a super easy way to enjoy a hot breakfast. Just dump everything in the slow cooker at night, and wake up to hot breakfast in the morning.

Chicken with 40 cloves of garlic is normally braised, but this recipe is made in the Crockpot, which makes it even easier. I leave the skin on the chicken during cooking to retain moisture, but if you eat the chicken with the skin off, this Crockpot recipe is even healthier.
