What can cut time in the kitchen, make great use of budget-friendly ingredients, and reduce kitchen mess? One appliance: a slow cooker. We have slow cooker meals (aka crock pot recipes) for every meal. Start by choosing a slow cooker dinner. We collected our favorite slow cooker recipes to make weeknight cooking a breeze with ideas for sandwiches, wraps, and, of course, soups and stews. We also assembled more than a dozen slow cooker recipes for pot roast with flavors from all over the world.

2 - pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 - cup onion, chopped (1 medium)
3 - cloves garlic, minced

2 - teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 - teaspoon salt
1/4 - teaspoon ground black pepper and/or cayenne pepper
2 - 15 ounce can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), rinsed and drained
2 - 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
1- cup chicken broth
1 - bay leaf
2 - tablespoons lime juice

Add curry powder, ginger, salt, and pepper; toss to coat. Stir in beans, tomatoes, broth, and bay leaf. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
