Chicken Recipes Crock Pot Express
Our most popular is probably our Crock Pot Express Barbecue Chicken – The cheapest and easiest dinner you’ll ever make in this multi cooker pressure cooker. It is a kid fave, you only need 3 ingredients and made into tacos they are always a huge hit.

Recipes for Crockpot Express
I always use simple ingredients. You can always swap out spices or seasonings you would rather use than my suggestions. Most important part to take into account is how much liquid is necessary for each one. If not enough is included the pot will stop working and you’ll be frustrated.
That comes into play more than ever with grains like our pressure cooker lentils and rice to get it tender.
