In my house, weekday dinners are insane. If I don’t have something cooking by 5:30pm, my sanity starts to disappear on account of my son’s “witching hour.” It’s handy to have a list of easy crock pot meals I can use for the crazy days. My definition of easy is:
- minimal chopping
- throw everything in the pot and turn it on
Here are my list of go-to meals, followed by some Whimsicle readers’ favorites.
If you have not checked out SkinnyMom.com, I highly recommend it! This chicken pot pie recipe consists of no chopping whatsoever!
I am a big fan of Ramen, but have a hard time justifying eating it because of all the sodium. This recipe uses the ramen noodles but you make your own sauce. Delicious! To add some veggies to this, I cut up 4 red potatoes and about a cup of fresh green beans. I add these to the crock pot when there is an hour left of cooking.
I love 100 Days of Real Food. This is another easy meat recipe where you simply rub the chicken with spices and throw it in the crock pot.
