15 Healthy Crockpot Recipes with Five Ingredients or Less

I love crockpot recipes because they’re so easy to make.  The thought of cooking dinner at 5pm feels impossible, but adding ingredients to the crockpot in the morning is doable.  I went through all of my crockpot recipes and pulled out that ones that are healthy and made with five ingredients or less.  A win-win!
15 Healthy Crockpot Recipes with Five Ingredients or Less

What do I consider healthy?

  • Recipes made with vegetables
  • Fresh meat and seasonings
  • Minimal amounts of processed foods

I’m fine with eating everything in moderation, but if I can feed my family healthier options that still taste great, everyone wins.

Chicken Freezer Crockpot MealsThese are all recipes that I’ve made myself so I know that they’re healthy and delicious – most of these are recipes that I make over and over again!  Enjoy, Friends.

    Thank you so much for these recipes, I love how your recipes are easy, healthy and so delicious. I live alone and usually only cook when my kids come over for dinner once a week using my large crock pot, now I feel like it’s easy for me to plan for myself and eat healthy with so little effort. I even went to Target and bought a small crock pot to use for my smaller meals and love it! You have inspired me so much! Thank you again.

    how much does the shopping list typically run?

    • Kelly says:

      My meals typically cost $8-10 per meal, but this list will probably be cheaper because there are less ingredients. The most expensive item is always the meat.

  • Mary says:

    How long can you typically store these in the freezer? Also, do you only use fresh chicken or can you use chicken breasts that are already frozen and then re-freeze them?

    • Kelly says:

      At least 3 months. You can use frozen chicken, but add it frozen to the bags (in other words, don’t thaw and re-freeze). The only issue is with meals that require you to cut the chicken before placing it in the bag. You can always shred the chicken after cooking though.

    Hi Kelly, love your site! Grateful for what you do! But what crockpot do you use/what one would you recommend? Thanks in advance!

    • Kelly says:

      Thanks, Amanda! I own several, but use my Crock Pot 6-quart Programmable Cook and Carry Slow Cooker most often because it has a programmable timer.
