Easy Crockpot Meals for the Family

Growing up in the midwest, everyone knew that when winter rolled around it’s time to bring out your crockpots! I remember as a kid, my mom would make my favorite vegetable soup in a slow cooker and the delicious smell would fill the house. Even till this day when I make my soup, the smell brings me back to the cozy fall and winter memories of my childhood coming home from school and sitting by a fire. I’ve used a crockpot for most of my adult life, since it’s an easy and a simple way to prepare a dinner. With an 11 month old crawling around an easy meal is my saving grace. Besides making soups and roasts, I LOVE cooking different chicken recipes that make the meat so tender and easy to pull apart. My hubby finds it funny how picky I am when it comes to the way I like my chicken cooked. I guess you can say I’m a chicken snob, hahaha! For these dishes you can buy any type/brand you like, I just buy the packaged trimmed breasts at Fry’s. These are my favorites:
Chicken with Salsa: So simple and easy! All you need is your chicken and any type of salsa you enjoy. 
Chicken with Italian Dressing: Marinate your chicken in the dressing and let it cook for as long as you like.
Chicken with marinara sauce: After the chicken is done I like to mix it with pasta or add a side of veggies.
Also, I like to buy various kinds of Campbells sauce mixes that are simple to throw in and puts a twist on dinner. My hubby is a fan of the sweet and sour and teriyaki.
Here is my preparation:
1.Prepare the chicken
2. Season and add the sauce
3. Cook to your desired time
What are some of your favorite, easy, crockpot meals?

    Love these suggestions. The slow cooker is hands down one of the best appliances to have in a busy kitchen. Chicken with Italian dressing comes out so tender and flavorful, so many uses for it!
