5 Super Easy Crock Pot Dinners

Sometimes the thought of making dinner again can make me want to scream.

Why do they want to eat every. single. night? 

When I get overwhelmed or in a slump is when I grab my trusty crock pot and make her do all the work! I have five tried and true dinners that we have in our dinner rotation and they really couldn’t be any easier.

These are all chicken dishes, can be served in different ways to add variety, and have less than 5 ingredients! Plus all you need is your crock pot so your clean up is super simple and if you use crock pot liners it is even easier!

(I can’t believe how long it took me to start using those, total game changer!)
