10 Easy Slow Cooker Recipes

A slow cooker is a valuable tool in the kitchen, particularly if you’re part of a busy household. It cooks your food long and slow, so that you can start it before you leave for work in the morning and dinner will be ready by the end of the day. What could be better than coming home to the aroma of a delicious meal, knowing that all the work’s been done already?

Some recipes are better suited for slow cooking than others. The long simmering time means that the slow cooker is best suited to soups and stews, braised dishes, or long-simmered sauces. Braising is ideal for slow cooker dishes, as it seals in the juices from the meat. Just brown your chicken in a skillet, transfer to your slow cooker with some vegetables and liquid, and let your slow cooker go! This method works for any chicken stew or curry. All you need to do is switch up your braising liquid, vegetables, and seasonings, and you can create an endless number of dishes.

And if you have a roast chicken on hand, you can easily make your own chicken stock is using a slow cooker. Throw in the carcass, some carrot, celery, onion, and herbs, and cover with water. Leave it on overnight and you’ll have a delicious chicken stock you can use at once or freeze for future use.

These are just a couple of the myriad ways to use your slow cooker. Check out our Slow Cooker Recipe section to see even more possibilities. Here are a few to get you started.
