Why cook yourself when all you have to do is toss all of your ingredients into a slow cooker instead? A slow cooker is an incredibly versatile kitchen appliance and can make a variety of recipes including classic chilis, soups, and stews, but it can also whip together desserts and other entrées like pulled pork or short ribs, among so many others.

Make Substitutions

If you cannot imagine your favorite chicken dish without a crispy breaded crunch, make a substitution. Instead of using white flour to create a breading for your dish, substitute it with another type of flour like an almond meal or coconut flour for a savory-yet-sweet finish. You can even crush up your favorite kind of nuts and use them to add a delicious crunch to any protein.
