How To Meal Prep Crock Pot Meals:

Prepping slow cooker meals have several timesaving benefits for me. My favorite is that it lets me I can cook while I am on the go. I love making meals and freezing them for our busiest days.

  1. Saving Time:
    • Once you’ve prepared the ingredients and placed them in the slow cooker, you don’t have to do much else. This lets you work, run errands, and do other things you must do while the meal cooks slowly over several hours.
    • Most slow cookers have a low heat “set it and forget it” optiom means you can start your meal in the morning or early afternoon and return later to a fully cooked, delicious gluten free meal. Some slow cookers even switch from high to low heat automatically.
  2. Cook in Batches:
    • Slow cookers are large enough to hold large quantities of food. This makes it easy to prepare multiple servings at once, perfect for meal prepping for the week ahead. I like to store leftovers in a container, then heat them and add them to a Thermos for the lunch box.
    • Buying ingredients in bulk and cooking large batches at a time can save money in the long run. If you are on a budget, here are some great gluten free budget-saving tips
  3. I tend to be lazy, so I also love these features:
    • Easy Cleaning: Many slow cooker recipes involve just one pot, making cleanup quick and straightforward. I also love to use these slow cooker liners, which make clean-up so much easier!!
    • Cook and Bring Them Somewhere: Slow cookers often have a removable inner pot, allowing you to refrigerate leftovers or take the entire pot to potlucks or gatherings.

One of the best parts is this slow-cooked food can make excellent gluten free freezer meals.

Serve These Chicken Dishes With These Sides:

How to Store Chicken Slow Cooker Meals:

Store leftovers in an airtight container in your refrigerator. They should keep fresh for up to 4 days. You can also freeze your leftovers. Freeze in either a freezer-safe zip-style bag or a freezer-safe container.

Here are the Recipes:

All of these gluten free slow cooker recipes use simple ingredients. The last thing busy parents need are hard-to-find ingredients, so it was important for me to choose recipes with easy-to-find, wholesome ingredients to make these easy dinners.

The cooking time varies by recipe, as do the cooking requirements, so read the full recipe. Some require cooking on high heat, others on low heat, and a few recipes use both high and low settings.
