11 Awesome Crockpot Recipes for When It's Just Too Hot for the Oven This post may contain affiliate links. See affiliate disclaimer here. I love living in NYC and I do love my apartment but when summer hits I will do anything to avoid turning my oven on. Even coking on the stove heats up my apartment to an almost unbearable degree so my best is ALWAYS crockpot cooking. Crockpots are one of my favorite kitchen tools. It is so simple - toss in a couple of ingredients and let them all meld together for a few hours - now you have an awesome meal (for the next couple of days too) without heating up your whole home. As an avid crockpotter, I try A LOT of recipes from Pinterest. I have listed out my top 11 go-to recipes below. Enjoy! 1.Chicken & Veggies: So simple but has a great flavor and is a one pot meal in itself! Get the recipe here. 2. Easiest Slow Cooker Taco Chicken: Super simple to throw together, I love making taco salads with this chicken. Just add lettuce, black beans, rice & dollop of Greek yogurt! Get the recipe here. 3.
