The beauty of a slow cooker is that you can set it and practically forget it until you return home from a long day and you are hungry for dinner. Usually, the smell of your cooked dinner hits your nose the minute you open the front door.

These recipes for chicken entrees and casseroles cooked in the crockpot are among the best you can get. Another great thing about slow cookers, they are so forgiving. Usually after 6 to 10 hours, the flavors all meld together. Often, you can substitute many ingredients for those called for in the recipes. And, if you make changes, be sure to write them down. A forgotten recipe is like a lost chord of music, it can take literally months to try to reproduce.
