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.
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?!
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!
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.!
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!
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!
I hope you get the chance to try one (or all!) of these tasty crockpot chicken recipes. They are some of my favorites, and so great for easily making dinner ahead of time.
