As a family we eat a lot of chicken and we love the slow cooker so I thought I would round up our best slow cooker chicken recipes. These are some of our favourite easy slow cooker recipes and ones the whole family enjoy.

Chicken can be quite cheap – and a lot of recipes use chicken on the bone which is a lot cheaper than boneless skinless chicken like chicken breasts. It also stops the chicken drying out during the extended cooking process. For most of our slow cooking recipes involving crockpot chicken we use skinless chicken thighs as they’re not too expensive and don’t dry out at all.

Sweet and Sour Chicken

One of our favourite meals is Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken. It goes well with rice or noodles and you can add lots of vegetables in to really bulk it out. Plus, the sweet and sour flavours are always a winner with the children!

Most chicken dishes we cook in the slow cooker use on the bone chicken but this Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe uses chicken thighs which work well in the slow cooker too and don’t get as dry as chicken breast.

Chicken and Chorizo Casserole

Another favourite crock pot chicken recipe is the delicious Slow Cooker Chicken and Chorizo Casserole which uses chicken pieces – drumsticks or thighs. The chorizo gives it a nice warm and spicy flavour and it works well with potatoes or rice.

Chicken Gumbo

Our Slow Cooker Chicken Gumbo is another slightly spicy recipe that is full of vegetables and has a lovely moreish quality. I usually always get seconds! We serve this with rice but it can be enjoyed with crusty bread or potatoes.

I hope this has given you some inspiration for more meals to cook using slow cookers. There are so many things that you can cook in a slow cooker from a slow cooker chicken casserole recipe through to a roast slow cooker whole chicken, chicken soup recipes and even chicken risotto.

I’m going to be making a nice slow cooker honey garlic chicken recipe soon too – the ultimate comfort food!

I’m looking forward to cracking out my slow cooker and cooking some more chicken crock pot recipes as soon as I can – I’ll share them with you when I do.
