These recipes are a terrific option for dinner if you are looking for economy, and something easy to cook. Most of the dishes listed are also great if you are looking for kid friendly dinner recipes.

In general, meat cooked with the bone, and darker portions such as thighs will be more moist. I also highly recommend using a meat thermometer to assure that your poultry is cooked enough, but not too much. The USDA recommends an internal cooking temperature of 165°F.

I've organized these recipes in two ways.  Below, the recipes are listed according to how you cook them.  So, if you know you want to cook something in the slow cooker then you can find all of those recipes listed together.

You can also find recipes by the type of chicken you have on hand.  While most recipes could be made with thighs or breasts, some recipes just work better with certain parts of the bird.
