Slow cookers are a great way to get a frugal and delicious dinner on the table no matter what happens during our busy days. We’re in the middle of sharing all sorts of delicious slow cooker recipes with our readers as part of our 30 Day Slow Cooker Challenge over at Homemaker’s Hutch and hope you join us (it’s free).

With that in mind, we thought we’d share 3 super simple chicken recipes with you. Granted, these are so simple it’s hard to call them recipes. Regardless, they are delicious and work with almost any cut of chicken you can find on sale, making them frugal options as well. Here we go:

 

Salsa Chicken

4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (or 6 Thighs, or about 8 to 10 chicken tenders)
1 Jar of Salsa

Lay the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker, cover with salsa and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 to 7 hours or until the chicken is done and starting to fall apart.

Serve over rice. Leftovers can be used in burritos the next day.

 

Barbecue Chicken

4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (or 6 Thighs, or about 8 to 10 chicken tenders)
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce

Lay the chicken in the bottom of your slow cooker, cover with bbq sauce and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 to 7 hours or until the chicken is done and starting to fall apart.

Serve over rice. Leftovers freezer really well.

Roasted Chicken

Did you know you can roast your chicken right in the slow cooker? No need to turn on the oven on a hot summer day and the chicken will cook while you’re out and about having fun.

Roasting Chicken
Lawry’s Seasoning Blend (or your favorite seasonings)
Aluminum Foil

Wash and dry the chicken. Rub with seasoning blend.

Crumple up foil into 4 large foil balls. Place them in your slow cooker.

Sit the seasoned chicken on top of the foil.

Cook on high for 4+ hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours or until the chicken is completely done.

We serve this with mashed potatoes and a side salad.

Leftover chicken makes great chicken salad.
