Help! October Crockpot Menu Ideas

I am planning to attempt something I've never done before...a WHOLE month of solely crockpot meals. I'm getting lots of ideas from Pinterest but would LOVE to have some of your family favorites. Please comment with a link or recipe.


  1. I am in love with my two crockpoets, and am looking forward to making lots of chili this fall! But I know you already have your own chili recipe, so here are a couple different recipes for you:)

    Rosemary Chicken w/ White Beans

    6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    1 TBL canola oil
    2 cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cup sliced fresh carrots
    1/2 Cup sliced celery
    2/3 cup italian dressing
    2 tsp. dried rosemary
    salt and pepper to taste

    In large skillet, brown chicken in oil on both sides. Place the beans, carrots and celery in slow cooker; top with chicken.

    Combine the salad dressing, rosemary, salt and pepper; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours.

    Sesame Orange Chicken (one of our faves!)

    1/2 Cup all purpose flour
    16 boneless skinless chicken thighs
    2/3 cup teriyaki sesame ginger barbecue sauce
    2/3 cup orange marmalade
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1 TBL minced fresh gingerroot
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    2 TBL sesame seeds, toasted
    Hot Cooked Rice

    Coat chicken with flour. Place in slow cooker. Combine bbq sauce, marmalade, oj, soy sauce, ginger and pepper flakes. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low 4-6 hours. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with rice.

    1. Both recipes sound delicious! Thanks!
