45 slow cooker family meals | easy weeknight crockpot recipes

With chicken breast often on sale, these easy and tasty recipes can be cheap help with your monthly grocery budget. No more wondering what to cook for dinner, skip the takeout and come home to a warm cooked dinner.

Tip: purchase chicken breast when it is on sale. I freeze the chicken in individual portions using the fold top sandwich bags, then place into a gallon freezer bag. I can usually fit 6-8 chicken breast into the freezer bag. The frozen chicken can be thawed out overnight, and placed in the crockpot in the morning.

I use my crock pot several times a week, especially in the summer months so the oven doesn’t heats up the house.  Most of these crock pot chicken recipes are quick and easy to prepare, and majority of them are dump meals where you just dump everything into the slow cooker and cover and cook until the timer goes off and your dinner is ready.

For those of you that prefer to meal prep, almost all of these slow cooker chicken recipes can be made into freezer meals. You can check out our tips for prepping easy crock pot freezer meals.
