I try to eat clean, but a lot of recipes include bottled dressings, seasoning packages that include a lot of sodium. And your nutritional labels do NOT include sugar content of a recipe? Thanks Report

Awww, SP is usually so thoughtful about including meat-free recipes in your collections. Hope you will continue to do so in the future -- especially as plant-based protein is increasingly recommended as a more healthful alternative! Report

Hi. I have a new crock pot that uses lines in place of the words "low," "high," or "keep warm." I assume that one line is for low, 2 lines is for high, and the squiggle lines is for keep warm. I have made 3 chicken recipes that suggest a low setting for 4 hours...and my chicken is so dry it is inedible. Any suggestions, tips or ideas as to what is going wrong? Help!! Report
I love my slow cooker, but I stopped using it for chicken because the texture of the chicken is so odd. It gets stringy and almost feels spongy to the tooth. What am I doing wrong? My hubby won't eat slow cooker chicken anymore because of this issue. :( Report

Seems everyone focuses on chicken these days. But hubby can't eat poultry or seafood. Do you have an article like this for red meat? Report
Great ideas for chicken in the slow cooker. We raise our own chickens so we know what they have eaten. I will definitely be trying some of these recipes. We are retired so it is handy for us to use the slow cooker too. Even though we have more time for making meals sometimes it is easier to make good choices when you have planned ahead. Report
Could someone remind me how to save this to my favorites? Thanks SO much!
Oh Yum! I've tried a few of these....now I plan to try a few more! I love my crockpot. :) Report

I put my slow cooker out on the patio during the summer and fix a lot of meals as everyone is in and out during those months. Having it outside, I don't have it heat up the kitchen. Report

Great recipes, I love cooking in slow cooker. Report
I tend to cook more beef or pork in the slow cooker, for some reason I feel that chicken ends up tasting funny in the slow cooker. I think because it has less fat than the other meats & tends to dry out. We eat plenty of chicken, just not prepared in the slow cooker. Report
I don't cook with meat anymore - can we get a compilation of vegetarian slow cooker meals? Report
Great recipes! Report
I don't have a slow cooker, but I do have a pressure cooker. I have found some healthy recipes for pressure cookers as well, which are good for when you want a slow-cooker meal without taking slow-cooker time. Report
The salsa chicken recipe is one of my favorites. It is so easy to put together, and always tastes wonderful! Report
Yes! I am all for one pot meals!!!! Report
