Easy Recipes: Two Weeks of Crockpot Meals

To stick with the 31 Days of (Lame) Excuses theme for October, let me just introduce this guest post from my friend Crystal by saying that I often use my crockpot specifically as an Excuse Preventer.  It’s pretty difficult to pretend you don’t have the energy to make a meal that doesn’t require any energy! 

I am so excited to be here guest posting on A Slob Comes Clean. I have been a long time follower of Nony’s!

As a mom of many my life is busy. Did I mention we homeschool three of our boys? I personally rely on weekly meal planning and easy recipes as my solution for getting dinner on the table. Personally, my crockpot is my most loved (and most used) kitchen appliance.

Today I want to share with you two weeks of crockpot recipes. You can take these recipes and create a grocery list and boom, you’ll have dinner on the table every night for your family.

My recipes include short ingredients lists and require little to no babysitting. Perfect, right?

Week 1:

  1. Crockpot Ravioli– this is the most viewed recipe on my site. Serve it with a dinner salad and rolls and dinner is done.
  2. Crockpot Veggie Lasagna– yes, lasagna in the crockpot. So easy. Add meat if you want.
  3. Creamy Chicken Tacos– serve in flour tortillas or crispy shells. We love flexibility!
  4. Crockpot Corn and Chicken Enchilada Casserole– yes, casseroles in the crockpot. Who knew?
  5. Apple Butter Pork Chops perfect Fall dinner!
  6. Crushed Tomato Chicken Soup– light and filling.
  7. Crockpot BBQ Chicken– it really does not get any easier than this. Did I mention it is two ingredients?

Week 2:

  1. Crockpot Italian Chicken– have you ever had chicken cooked in spaghetti sauce all day? Talk about tender.
  2. Beans and Rice– beans are a budget friendly meal and very high in protein.  We serve them over steamed rice and dinner is easy. Not a fan of rice? Serve your beans with a side of cornbread instead.
  3. Crockpot Chicken and Zucchini over Bowtie Pasta– man this is good and a great way to use up fresh veggies.
  4. Tex Mex Roast Wraps– who said roast in the crockpot can only be made one way? No carrots and potatoes in this recipe.
  5. Crockpot Sloppy Joe’s– my boys love these. Serve with a can of baked beans and tater tots and they’ll love you forever!
  6. Crockpot Chicken and Noodles– this recipe defines comfort food. Yum!
  7. Spaghetti and Meat Sauce we use ground Italian sausage, but you can also use hamburger meat. So simple.

There you have it. Now you’re off to a great start with two weeks of easy recipes for your family.

    Thanks so much for the recipes. I love to use my crockpot also and I am always looking for new recipes.

    When I saw Crockpot Italian Chicken, I thought it might be like what I made for the first time last night. Since it isn’t, here’s what was a huge hit with my family. Amounts depend one what your family needs. I filled a 5 qt slow cooker.

    Boneless skinless chicken breasts
    Golden potatoes, cut in half
    Baby carrots

    Pour an 8-9oz bottle of Italian dressing over it and cook. My chicken breasts were frozen in a solid clump, so I cooked it for 5 hours on high.

    I used a bottle of Ken’s Garlic and Asiago cheese Italian dressing that I had stockpiled from a time when it was free after coupon at HEB and that was the only kind on the shelf, so I bought it, not sure if my family would like it. SO GOOD!

      Your version of the recipe sounds delish! I actually have some potatoes in my crisper drawer that I need to use up! I will be giving your recipe a try for sure!

      I will let you know if I share it on my site. 🙂

    Hello like your recipes but do you have a suggestion for keeping your kitchen cool while using the crock pot? My kitchen is very small and heats up fast. Not saying it’s extremely hot but it seems like I’m on the sun! Thanks for the post enjoyed reading it. Blessings joann

      I don’t. Mine heats it up so much less than the oven. I’ve heard others say they use theirs outside or in the garage, though. That might help!
