Slow Cooker Recipes

Being the inherently lazy overworked mom that I am, I sat down to rest and found my way to pinterest for some easy marinade recipes. I could have found the exact recipes in my cookbook cupboard, but that would have been more work. I chose recipes that were familiar to my family so they wouldn’t turn up their noses at my yummy creations.
Among the finalists were:

  • Teriyaki Chicken
  • BBQ chicken
  • Creamy Crockpot chicken
  • Copycat Cafe Rio Chicken (this one is a FAVORITE)

Of course we couldn’t eat them all in one sitting so they needed to be Freezer friendly.  You could certainly put them in the Slow Cooker fresh instead of freezing them.

I love that in less than an hour, I was able to have 12 meals ready to go for my family…they like to eat, remember this post about that? Just think, that’s 12 different days that I don’t have to think about dinner…a very stressful part of my day.  I’m always looking for EASY, fast dinners like I’m sure you are too.

  1. OH yum! I really admire the freezer meals and would love to make some of these sometime. We got Zaycon chicken last fall and dont plan on buying any more til probably again this next fall but that is such a great idea to make freezer meals with that chicken. Thanks for sharing! Btw I grabbed your card from the BYBC on Saturday so wanted to come by & say HI 🙂

      Hi Stacie,
      Thanks for stopping by. I learned so much at that conference, almost too much 🙂 So what did you do with your 40# of chicken when you got it?

  2. oh PS my go to dinner when time is to eat? lol. My husband makes dinners and I do dishes. He has class late on Wed nights so I really should start thinking about having something ready for when he comes home that is better than a bowl of cereal.

      Would your husband be willing to teach a class? 😉 ( on the dinner and dishes thing, I mean )

What do you think?
