It’s time to dust off your slow cooker! Fall is here and slow cooker recipes are perfect for a chilly Fall evening. I have complied a list of some of my favorite easy and affordable slow cooker dinner recipes. These recipes are 5 ingredients or less (aside from basic ingredients like seasonings, water, butter, milk, flour, oils, etc that would have a nominal cost per serving).
Optional: add broccoli, top with crushed ritz crackers, or substitute shredded cheddar with meltable cheese.
This is my favorite way to cook a whole chicken. It’s so easy and it lasts a while. We can use it for many different recipes throughout the week (chicken pot pie, chicken salad, chicken casserole, etc)
Don’t have a Crock Pot?
If you don’t have a slow cooker, I recommend purchasing one. It’s a worthwhile investment because there are so many easy, delicious and budget-friendly recipes that you can make with one. It’s especially great for busy families who don’t have much time to cook. You just throw the ingredients in and let the slow cooker do all the work. I was hesitant to buy one at first because I didn’t want to purchase something that I would never use, but I’m so glad I did because there are so many affordable and great meals that I am able to make with it.
