5 crockpot meals for the week ~ February 8, 2021

Using my crockpot really helps make meal planning work. I am going to share 5 crockpot meals for the week, that will make meal planning super simple! There is something about throwing together some ingredients in the morning and coming home from work with dinner ready to eat! If you are new to meal planning check out my post- how to weekly meal plan, with an easy guide on making weekly meal planning something anyone can do!


Here is my hardworking crockpot! I have had this crockpot for about 10 years or more! The settings include high, low and warm. The warm feature is really a great option, it keeps meals from burning if they are done cooking but you aren’t ready to eat.

Then make it into rice bowls, tacos or a salad. It is one of my go to recipes! It rotates on my menu on a weekly basis!


Honey Garlic Chicken in the Crockpot

  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs or 
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos (healthier option for soy sauce)
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup honey

  1. Add all ingredients except the arrow root or tapioca powder to the crockpot
  2. Cook on low for about 8 hours
  3. Right before you are ready to eat, it’s time to thicken up the sauce! Remove the chicken and add the arrow root or tapioca powder- and whisk it into the liquid in the crockpot. Cook it on high for 15-30 minutes depending on the desired thickness.
  4. Put the chicken back in the crockpot and shred it up!
  5. Serve over desired rice (white, brown or cauliflower)

  1. Mix all of the meatloaf ingredients together and form into a loaf
  2. Spray the inside of the crockpot with non-stick spray ( my favorite is an organic olive oil option)
