Mississippi Roast took the Internet by storm last winter. The recipe is easy and made with ingredients you likely already have on hand. Our Mississippi Roast recipe is so popular with our audience we decided to develop a recipe for Mississippi Chicken.

Slow Cooker Chicken Piccata

We make our version of this classic dish in the slow cooker, which leaves you with juicy chicken and easy cleanup.

Slow Cooker Rotisserie-Style Beer Can Chicken

Slow Cooker Loaded Ham and Potato Soup

Slow Cooker Chunky Loaded Potato Soup | @hamiltonbeach

This loaded potato soup is a crowd pleaser. With the combination of potatoes and sweet potatoes, ham, and cheddar cheese, there’s no wonder this is one of our most popular slow cooker recipes. Plan to use up holiday leftovers and make this flavorful soup.

Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala

While you’re probably used to cooking chicken marsala on the stovetop, our audience seems to enjoy making this classic Italian-American dish in the slow cooker. The slow cooker helps seal in the juices while the chicken cooks, leaving you with moist, flavorful meat AND easy clean up.

    My favorite would be one that my son makes in his slow cooker and it is called Cholent. Among other things is contains, barley, beans, some sweet potato, pieces of beef, a diverse variety of herbs and seasonings, broth, and it cooks very low overnight. My description does not do it justice. I would love to be able to make it in my own home. Thank you for this opportunity.

    My wife and I have made some out-of-this-world delicious meals with our Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker. Our meat and potato favorites such as beef stew, pork and sauerkraut, Ukrainian sweet and sour cabbage [kapusta], chili con carne, spaghetti meat sauce, wimpies [sloppy joes], etc. have been very popular among our family and friends. One of the best things we ever did was purchase our Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker after two other non Hamilton Beach cookers failed us.
    Long live Hamilton Beach!
