 Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes

Easy slow cooker dinners are what this mom right here likes. I have a three-year-old toddler and a Great Dane. Both are highly active and keep this mom on the go! Having meals I can prep when we wake up, and then walk away from, saves me from wanting to order takeout at the end of the day.

If you are in the market for a slow cooker, this might help you to find a slow cooker that fits what you are needing. I personally own two slow cookers. We are a slow cooker lover in our home. Currently, we have two appetizers going for the big game day party later! 

Cooking for One to Two People  – Reach for A 3-Quart Slow Cooker 

A 3-Quart Slow Cooker is a good size for a person or two. You can fit most recipes in it, besides, say a whole chicken or roast. But you can whip up small batches of soup, chicken or beef recipes, etc.

This is great if you also like serving dips and such. A 3 quart is a great size for that as well. If you want to cook roasts or whole chickens, reach for a larger slow cooker. 

Cooking for Four Or More – Buy a 5 Quart Slow Cooker 

So if you have around 4-5 people you are cooking for a 5 quart is really nice. I personally own a 4-quart and it struggles to fit a whole chicken in it. I have to make sure I buy a really small chicken to jam it in. A 5 quart is a nice size to make a large batch of soup, fit a big roast, chicken and more inside.  

Cooking for A Crowd – Buy A 6 Quart or Larger 

Reach for a larger slow cooker if you love hosting parties, game day dishes, or want to batch cook. You will find a 6 quart or larger can accommodate your needs with ease. 

Double up soup recipes and then freeze half for meal prepping, or make a ton of chicken to shred and freeze for meals coming up later down the month. You will find a really large slow cooker will ensure you have the cooking space you need.
