Go beyond pot roast-although, we've got a great recipe for that, too!-with these slow cooker recipes that are so easy, it's almost like dinner cooks itself (almost).

1. Crack Chicken

Hit pause on the Sloppy Joes for a minute, and try this sandwich-filling alternative-it's great on tacos and as a dip, too. It only requires four ingredients (if your kids are hesitant, one of them is bacon!). (Via Cookies and Cups )

2. Chili Mac

Throw tried-and-true comfort food favorites, like ground beef, crushed tomatoes, and chili powder, into your slow cooker-and just under three hours later you'll have a dinner soaked with hearty flavor. (Via Countryside Cravings )

3. Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs

Stuff homemade meatballs with hunks of mozzarella and then forget about them for four hours while they cook to gooey perfection. (Via Creme De La Crumb )

4. French Dip Sandwiches

Trimming the roast beef of fat and letting the meat cook for six hours is the secret to these tender sandwiches. If your kids aren't convinced, remind them that one of the sauce's ingredients is soda! (Via Carlsbad Cravings )

5. Honey Garlic Chicken and Veggies

You toss the meat and veggies into your Crock Pot-and that's it. Translation: A full meal in one pot. (Via Damn Delicous )

This recipe calls for potatoes, carrots, and green beans, but swap in any of your favorite veggies for a soup that is sure to earn a spot in your slow cooker dinner rotation. (Via Jo Cooks )

9. Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Once you put in all the ingredients, you can almost forget about this soup-until it's almost done cooking and you need to add evaporated milk. (Via Well Plated by Erin )

10. Beef and Broccoli

Cook thin strips of meat in a beefy broth for three hours and you won't just have dinner-you'll have a new family favorite meal. (Via Your Cup of Cake )
