20 Crockpot Chicken Breast Recipes


20 Chicken Recipes for Your Slow Cooker

Chicken has gotten to the point where it’s actually cheaper to eat than beef.  It’s pretty sad, isn’t it?  I remember when you could get ground beef for 99 cents a pound, but chicken was still closer to $2 per pound.


I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of eating dishes made with chicken breast.  I love how easy it is to cook it in the slow cooker.  I tend to make it easy on myself and buy the frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the 3 or 5 pound bags in the freezer section.  Sometimes, I cook it straight from frozen and other times I thaw it out in the microwave.  Either way, it cooks up nicely in the slow cooker…and there’s lots of great dishes you can make with it!


Need ways to use up that leftover Thanksgiving Turkey?  Many of these recipes will work well!

Slow Cooker Santa Fe Chicken Soup

I’ve been so busy thinking about Black Friday Sales (have you seen my sale yet?) and holiday season, that I’ve put off  starting to eat more healthily!  I’m getting caught up on the holiday festivities now and I’m starting to focus on healthy, diet friendly recipes for my slow cooker.  I’m about to get going on a new eating plan (aka diet) and I think this one fits the bill!  It was really good and a great way to fill up the freezer!  This made a large pot that we ate on for several days, but the next time I make it, I’m going to put individual serving sizes in quart size freezer bags so that I can have plenty of food for my lunches, when I’m on a diet.


In the past, I’ve bought Progresso Light Soup as a staple for my kitchen while on a diet.  While those soups are good, this one is much better, and so much better for you, too!
