Having a slow cooker makes life run much smoother for lots of households. If you’re looking for a quick, easy, but delicious meal then your slow cooker will often provide this. Throw some ingredients together, brown them if you fancy (depending on the dish) & then the slow cooker will serve you up a delicious, tasty, often healthy, meal in 4-12 hours depending on the recipe! These are some of my favourite slow cooker chicken breast recipes and most of them are great served alongside slow cooker rice.
Speaking of rice… this slow cooker chicken and prawn paella is always a winner in our home! It is a delicious, hearty meal and the addition of chicken stock makes this frugal, even alongside a generous serving of prawns.
If you’re looking to enjoy a Mexican style dinner, with a little spice and extra flavour, then these slow cooker chicken nachos are perfect. As you add the mixture to the air fryer tortilla chips (made with my easy tortilla recipe) at the end it keeps a delicious crunch, and if you give them a quick grill or microwave you can get an even better result. On occasion I have also made slow cooker jacket potatoes and then turned these into potato skins to serve alongside this.
A roast dinner is always a winner in our home and this slow cooker whole chicken is SO simple. It produces it’s own lovely stock and you can even cook some veggies in the pot which will turn out lovely, soft and flavoursome too. My airfryer roast potatoes, onion gravy and sage and onion stuffing all go alongside this perfectly.
A hearty pie is a great way to use up leftovers, and this slow cooker chicken and mushroom pie filling is great. You can even make a big batch of this up and then freeze it, with the pastry on the pie, ready for a simple, hearty dinner after a long day.
Using up leftover vegetables in slow cooker dinners is a great way to cut down food waste and this slow cooker chicken casserole is a real winner. This has to be one of my favourite Autumnal slow cooker chicken breast recipes. You can use leftovers, you can clear out the bottom of the fridge and at the end of it you’ve got a delicious, healthy, hearty casserole.
As pub dinners go this slow cooker hunters chicken is pretty spot on! Finish it off under the grill for a couple of minutes for the crispiest, most delicious topping and serve alongside some air fryer wedges or air fryer chips. Also, I’ve made slow cooker chorizo potatoes to serve alongside this too and they do NOT disappoint on the naughty factor!
I’m a BIG fan of a curry, and can’t understand why people buy jars of sauce when this slow cooker chicken curry is so simple, delicious AND frugal too! This goes great with a nice fluffy naan bread and some delicious rice. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say it is better than any jar sauce you buy in the supermarket!
While we’re speaking about curries… if you want a quick, delicious, but healthier curry then this slow cooker chicken saag curry is the one for you. A delicious, slightly spicy punch with all the health benefits of spinach.
