When it comes to kid-friendly dinners, chicken is a staple ingredient. Whether it's chicken nuggets or buffalo chicken pizza, children love a good poultry dish! However, cooking chicken properly can be time-consuming, causing you to spend more time in the kitchen and less with your kids — unless, of course, you've got a slow cooker. Crockpots [1] are loved by moms all over the world for churning out incredible dishes with minimal prep time [2]. For these yummy chicken dishes, you simply prepare the ingredients and leave the slow cooker alone, allowing you to get more out of your day. Your kids will love the great taste of their favorite meals and the extra time with mom.
