Best Crockpot Chicken Recipes

The Top Ten


These recipes for chicken entrees and casseroles cooked in the crockpot are the best. Remember to follow cooking times and instructions carefully, and that you can substitute many ingredients for those called for in the recipes. If you make changes, be sure to write them down! Because a lost recipe is like a lost chord of music; it's hard to reproduce.

I love this recipe; it's creamy, smooth, and so flavorful. And the chicken is moist and tender. I usually add chopped onion and baby carrots when I make it; you could use bell peppers, mushrooms, and garlic too.

I adapted this recipe, which started as a skillet meal, for the crockpot. It's really delicious and easy to make too. Serve it with hot cooked rice or couscous, or even some penne or orzo pasta.

5. Salsa Crockpot Chicken

Nothing is easier than this two ingredient recipe. Because it's so simple, I like serving it over a buttered noodles or a rice pilaf dish. This is one of my favorite recipes ever. The last time I made this I serves it over Chile Rice Casserole for even more flavor.

Wild rice is the only 'rice' I've found that cooks well in the crockpot. Brown rice is okay, but wild rice holds up best during the long cooking time. This homey and comforting recipe is easy and delicious.

This five ingredient recipe is so flavorful and easy to make. Two kinds of purchased sauces add lots of interest, and the chicken is super tender.
