Chicken Slow Cooker Recipes

Chicken is a brilliant meat to use in the slow cooker with the right recipe! If you’re after Slow Cooker Chicken Marinara or something different like Slow Cooker Pulled Chicken, you’re in the right place.

Does Chicken dry out in the Slow Cooker?

As long as you use the right cut of chicken, and cook for the right amount of time, chicken works great in the slow cooker.

The best type of chicken to use in the slow cooker:

  • Chicken thighs – most of our recipes will recommend chicken thighs. The extra fat in the meat means that it’s much easier to cook and you’re less likely to overcook them.
  • Chicken breast – chicken breasts work well in the slow cooker, especially if you’re after a leaner cut of chicken. Care should be taken to ensure that they’re not overcooked.
