Clipped this great tasting recipe for both chicken thighs or chicken legs awhile back. So good and so easy, prep, pop in a slow cooker and you have a super meal on the days you don't have time to spend in the kitchen. Like many curry lovers I am generous in the adding of my...

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

A wonderful new recipe found in our daily paper, Teriyaki Chicken using homemade Teriyaki Sauce. I had to agree the only thing better than a delicious chicken teriyaki is a delicious teriyaki chicken that practically cooks itself! This works stove top as well. NOTE,made this last week adding in red and green peppers strips half way through, made for great eye appeal to the Teriyaki Chicken which...

These chicken barbecue sandwiches surely are tender, succulent and full of flavor.

And to make it even better, it's done in the crockpot but tastes like you've spent all day smoking and grilling the meat which results in a very satisfying and flavorful dish. I...

Crockpot Chipotle Honey Chicken Tacos

Easy peasy tacos. Canned chipotles and honey slowly caramelize together for a glossy and incredibly tasty sauce. You may hesitate because there's so little liquid in the slow cooker with the chicken, but don't worry. That's how it's supposed to be. It allows the sauce to get a little sticky, which is exactly what you want.

Crock Pot Whole Chicken & Homemade Broth, A One Pot Dish

This is a 'One Pot' - 'Two for One' recipe. Now, I wouldn't serve this as a "Roast Chicken," because it is pale in color and no crispy skin; however, the chicken is moist and tender. I usually remove the skin, and slice up the chicken; and, serve with gravy - and it's delicious. Leftover chicken I freeze in individual freezer bags for later use. Since, I normally make...

A recipe I found from Ingham's chicken's. This recipe works so well in the slow cooker. If you prefer a thicker sauce you may like to thicken the sauce during cooking using just a little flour. Timing may depend on your cooker, but the timing was perfect in mine. Garnish is optional but does add to the flavours, served with rice this makes for a delicious dinner.

Spicy Chinese Chicken For 2

You can use chicken thighs or chicken breast for this recipe I prefer using thighs, but, if you are using the breasts, cook them for the shortest time as they tend to dry out when cooked in the slow cooker. I serve this on top of white rice and drizzle the sauce over the rice. If gluten intolerant make sure you are using gluten free chicken stock and soy sauce.

Ginger Honey Garlic Chicken Or Ribs Crock Pot

This is a oriental style sauce I put together a while back and really enjoyed. It is great on ribs and skin on bone in chicken pieces. This enough for 2 racks of ribs or 3 pounds of chicken pieces.

One of the best crock pot meals I have ever made, quite delicious and so easy, put it all in the pot, go do whatever for the day and come home to a wonderful aroma though the house and fantastic meal.

It doesn't get any easier than this. Intense flavor.

NOTE: The original recipe serves 4, but since I use particularly large breasts, just before serving I slice each one into thirds lengthwise, & when we sit down to eat, that will...

Asian Chicken Wings Crock Pot

These are tasty, moist wings and so easy to put together.

Easy Crock Pot Chicken Cacciatore

This is great easy crock pot recipe. Personally, I do prefer to use the bone in skinless thighs for this recipe; because I really think the bone adds a lot of flavor. Also, you could a couple of bone in skinless breasts; however, would cut them in 2-3 pieces similar to the size of the thighs. The combination of the white and dark meat would make for a nice flavor. It is basically just "a drop and...

Slow Cooker Chicken With Cranberries

A nice easy dish for those busy days around the holidays. Put this on before going shopping and dinner is waiting when you get home! Serve with rice or couscous and a veggie. Boneless chicken thighs could be used also. NOTE: The 6 hour cooking time is based on my very old slow cooker, but I have noticed my newer slow cooker cooks hotter, so 4 hours on low may be plenty.

Slow Cooker Coq Au Vin

A variation on the classic French dish. I like to use just thighs and/or drumsticks.

You can also use it as a taco or enchilada filling (use a slotted spoon to serve the chicken, if it is very saucy).
