I love using my crockpot for meal prep, so I wanted to share some of my favorite crockpot chicken recipes with you, all rounded up together in one place.
I’ve been on a crockpot roll lately – anyone else? It’s just so easy and convenient!
All of these recipes are healthy, packed with flavor, and super easy to make. Definitely a win-win situation!
Chicken Slow Cooker Recipes
I love how easy chicken is to cook in the crockpot, and how juicy and tender it comes out.
It’s so much simpler than worrying about over- (or under-) cooking it in the oven, and having the whole cooking process be hands off is a huge help, too.
I love that with a crockpot you just dump everything in, set a timer, and forget about it until dinnertime when you magically have food already ready to eat!
If you’re a meal prep fan, these meal ideas also make weekly meal prep a breeze.
Without further ado – here are my favorite crockpot chicken recipes! Enjoy.
Crockpot Mexican Chicken
This simple yet delicious Mexican chicken is the perfect starter for basically any meal: burritos, nachos, taco salads, burrito bowls, and everything in between.
It’s deliciously seasoned, and the crockpot does most of the cooking for you. What’s not to love?!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala
This chicken tikka masala is comfort in a bowl. It’s creamy, healthy, and filling!
Serve as is with the veggies, or spoon over rice and/or pita bread.
It’s also dairy-free and gluten-free (if you omit the pita bread), and the recipe includes a vegetarian/vegan option so everyone can enjoy it!
Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore
Tender chicken thighs are slow-cooked along with vegetables and seasonings for a delicious Italian-inspired meal!
Serve the veggie-packed tomato sauce and chicken over a bed of your favorite pasta, and you’ve got the family-friendly meal of your dreams. It’s easy to make, and so flavorful.
Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup
Say hello to the coziest slow cooker soup, with tender chicken, pillowy noodles, and tons of flavorful veggies! It’s so comforting, and even easier to make – thanks to the slow cooker.
Even the noodles are cooked in the crockpot, so making this recipe is mostly hands-off. This soup is sure to warm you right up on a cold day!
Crock Pot Chicken Enchiladas Verde
These easy, cheesy enchiladas feature a veggie-packed chicken filling that’s made in the slow cooker for easy preparation! It’s a great weeknight dinner idea the whole family will love.
All you have to do is then fill the tortillas, roll them up, add salsa verde and cheese, and bake until bubbly! They’re extra delicious with sliced avocado on top, too.
Slow Cooker Honey Lemon Chicken
This easy crockpot honey lemon chicken is a juicy, tangy, low-effort meal! It’s perfect for when you need a simple weeknight dinner, but still want something that looks and tastes delicious.
It’s so tasty served with roasted asparagus and crispy potatoes, but you can switch it up with any sides you like: other veggies, rice, salad, quinoa, etc.!
Crockpot Moroccan Chicken Stew
If you want to really switch things up, try this Moroccan stew! It’s packed with tender chicken, sweet apricots, veggies, and spices for an aromatic stew that’s totally mouth-watering.
This one also includes a vegan variation in case you want to try that instead!
Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
Looking for a flavor-packed and filling soup recipe? You’ll love this slow cooker chicken taco soup! It’s easy to make and super nourishing, from the juicy chicken and fire-roasted tomatoes to the black beans, bell peppers, and more.
I love this soup topped with plain Greek yogurt, diced avocado, sliced jalapeno, and a sprinkle of shredded cheese (but it’s still totally delicious without any additional toppings)!
Crockpot Balsamic Chicken
This sweet and tangy balsamic-glazed chicken is a super easy, and goes well with pretty much any side dish – but especially pasta. Try it with pesto pasta, or simply use the balsamic sauce as your pasta sauce!
You just cook it in the slow cooker, then if you want to you can toss it under the oven broiler for a few minutes to get the skin nice and crispy.
It’s great for meal prep, too!
Slow Cooker Honey Mustard Chicken Drumsticks
Did you know you can make tender and juicy chicken drumsticks in the slow cooker? This recipe features a sweet and tangy honey mustard sauce that’s totally delicious – and simple to make!
Serve these drumsticks with your favorite sides (I love brown rice and broccolini) for an easy, tasty weeknight meal.
