4. Crock Pot Chicken And Rice
I love this recipe because I have a hard time thinking of more than just soups for my crockpot. This dish looks like the perfect answer to a little slow cooker variety. Plus, cooking rice with the rest of your food is a lot less clean up!

This stew has LOTS of veggies for one of the healthiest stews I’ve seen. I also love that there’s an instant pot variation! That means it’s perfect if you forget to get it together early enough.
