Crock pots are great kitchen tools because they’re basically foolproof. Whether you recently received one as a gift or bought one for yourself, you may wonder what you can make with your newfound countertop appliance. Check out these easy crock pot meals anyone can make, even if they’re on a special diet.

1. Seasoned Chicken Breasts

One of the best parts about slow cooking is making pounds of meat at a time. Make enough chicken breasts to last the week by combining chicken, broth, and seasonings before cooking everything on low for at least three hours.

When the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll have juicy chicken ready to go. Simplify your meals and help yourself build more muscle by eating lean chicken that cooks while you’re doing other things.

2. Crock Pot Mexican Casserole

If you’re in the mood for high-quality tequila cocktails and delicious Mexican food, put a few ingredients in your crock pot to make a casserole. Mexican casserole recipes include beef, corn, beans, and seasonings that need to cook for two to three hours on high before you can spoon everything into bowls.

3. Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Making buffalo chicken in the crock pot gives you some mealtime flexibility. After your chicken cooks in buffalo sauce and Ranch seasoning for six to seven hours on low, you can make sandwiches for yourself and your friends. Pair it with a side salad or save it in meal prep containers to make delicious food you can enjoy for the next few days.

4. Low-Carb Lasagna

Lasagna is a classic meal, but it’s also high in calories and fat. That might not work with your current diet or fitness routine. Instead, you can make low-carb lasagna in your crock pot so it’s ready before your Saturday evening date night begins.

Combine thinly sliced chicken with sausage, mushrooms, cheese,  and marinara sauce before cooking everything on low for three hours. With less than ten minutes of prep time, you’ll have a warm, cheesy meal ready to go.

5. Crock Pot Hamburger Helper

Hamburger Helper is a great meal because it only has a few ingredients, but it traditionally requires a good half hour at the stove. Save time by transferring the recipe to your crockpot before you leave for work. All you need is ground beef, cheese, and your preferred pasta.

Mix everything with the right seasonings and after cooking for eight hours on low, you’ll have a warm meal waiting for you. You can always swap the pasta with low-carb alternatives like cauliflower or veggie pasta if you’re currently on a weight loss or fitness diet.

6. Slow Cooker Cheesy Potatoes

Treat yourself to a warm, cheesy delight by mixing potatoes and cheese in your crockpot. The diced potatoes cook quickly on low heat for three hours and taste great with cheese, sour cream, and cream of chicken soup. Mix halfway through to prevent the dairy from burning on the bottom or sides of the bowl.

7. Healthy Sloppy Joes

If sloppy Joes are your favorite recipe, you’re in luck. They’re a simple crock pot recipe because the ground beef cooks in the sauce, but you can also switch the ingredients to make the recipe healthier. Swap the ground beef for ground turkey and add zucchini, squash, and diced carrots to load your serving with fiber. 

8. Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Pot roast is a classic slow cooker meal. You can make the meat by itself if you want a low-carb recipe, but you can also simmer potatoes and carrots in the broth while the meat cooks. Make a roast for your friends when they visit or make one for yourself and you’ll have enough food to meal prep for the week.
