I love an easy crockpot and slow cooker recipe. There’s nothing as wonderful as throwing a few ingredients in the pot, turning it on, and walking away for it to cook while you get along with your day.
I have to tell you, my crockpot doesn’t get as much love during the spring and summer months as it does during the fall and winter. When I think about it, it’s not that I don’t make and eat similar foods, but my cooking methods seem to change with the seasons as well.
We eat chicken year round in my household, so I could be making it in my crockpot year round too, right? As I was thinking about this idea, I started looking around for some chicken recipes I can make it my crockpot that aren’t just soups, stews, and chilis, but other entrees as well.
As I went searching, I realized just how many great dishes are out there that I could be making that are outside the realm of warm and cozy fall dishes.
