Chicken is a popular food item – not only because it is healthy and delicious, but also because it is fun to cook. You can never get bored with chicken meals because there are so many ways in which you can add variety to it. Chicken can be roasted, baked, grilled, sautéed, or fried. But slow – cooking chicken in the crockpot has some amazing health benefits as it retains most of the nutrients and enhances natural flavours as well.
So here we present a list of five easy chicken meals that you can make in the Crockpot:
- Crockpot Chicken Enchilada Soup:
Laced with spices, onion and enchilada sauce, this chicken soup is a delightful winter treat. Fire roasted tomatoes and tortilla chips give it the crispy flavor while the sour cream and a good quantity of cheddar cheese give it a smooth, creamy texture. (Recipe at delish.com)
