Crockpot recipes make eating healthier easier, especially for busy families. In the morning, you throw all of these healthy ingredients into a pot, turn it on, and then leave. When you return, you’ve got a healthy, hot meal ready to eat. One of my family’s favorite healthy crockpot recipes is shredded chicken and crackers. This recipe is one of the creamiest and most delicious crockpot recipes we’ve tried and the kids love it because they get to be involved in making it – by smashing crackers of course.

If you don’t already have at least one crockpot you are missing out! They come in all different shapes and sizes nowadays! They have tiny ones for dips, small ones which are great for portability, and of course they have larger ones for everyday use. I love my roasting sized crockpot for big items like ham, turkeys, or feeding a crowd! They also make crockpots specifically for casseroles now too! They’re amazing for making lasagna and other casseroles.

  1. This recipe looks so delicious and easy to make. I will have to get the ingredients I need to make some this week. I am sure it will be a big hit.

  2. I am always looking for new crock pot recipes to try. This looks like it would be a popular recipe in my house.

  3. I know it is not a high tech item but I don’t have a crockpot. I do love one pot meals so I really need to get one. My kids love broccoli so this recipe is one they would like after crushing crackers.
