This crock pot dinner recipe is perfect for a cozy meal in the fall and winter seasons. The ceramic bowl of the crock pot is weighty and versatile, suitable for oven use up to 250°C. After enjoying a slow-cooked meal, the pot can be easily cleaned in the sink. For a simple yet delicious dish, start by adding boneless, skinless chicken breasts, either frozen or defrosted, to the pot with 1 cup of broth or water.
Cooking on high heat can break down nutrients, but using a slow cooker preserves the nutritional value of your ingredients. Season chicken thighs with honey, ketchup, onion powder, thyme, dried mustard, dried parsley, garlic, and soy sauce for a flavorful meal. These ingredients are perfect for casseroles, curries, chili, pot roasts, and even desserts. Cooking chicken in salsa for hours results in tender and flavorful meat, ideal over rice or noodles.

For pork dishes, top the meat with butter and cook until the internal temperature reaches 145-150 degrees F. This typically takes 2-4 hours, depending on the size of the pork loin. Low carb chicken fajitas are another great option, easily made with frozen, canned, and pre-mixed seasonings. The Crock-Pot 7 Quart Portable Programmable Slow Cooker, featuring a timer and locking lid, is an excellent choice for these recipes.
Slow cooking is perfect for producing flavorful meals with minimal effort, ideal for busy lifestyles. The Crock-Pot Express Easy Release Pressure Multicooker can even prepare dishes in an hour. When cooking is complete, allow the chicken to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. This method of slow cooking, reminiscent of the way pioneers and cowboys cooked, allows flavors and textures to blend beautifully.
