Using a slow cooker is like magic: pour in the ingredients, set the heat level, and then shift focus to your to do list, all the while your slow cooker does the heavy lifting. Chicken is one of my favorite ingredients to use in a slow cooker, since it’s a flavorful source of lean protein and it requires little effort to cook. These are some of SparkPeople’s favorite slow cooker chicken recipes.

    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!! - 9/17/2013   6:39:41 PM

    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. :( - 8/22/2013   5:55:15 PM

    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? - 6/20/2013   11:18:06 AM
    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. - 5/17/2013   3:03:25 PM

    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. - 3/20/2013   2:12:26 PM

    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. - 4/12/2012   1:56:35 PM

    I don't cook with meat anymore - can we get a compilation of vegetarian slow cooker meals? - 4/12/2012   11:58:29 AM

    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. - 4/12/2012   3:55:59 AM
