40 Gluten-Free, Slow Cooker, Chicken Recipes

Comfort food cooking all day on low heat is a great way to make easy, gluten-free meals for your family. A slow cooker meal is a perfect solution to the dinner crunch time on busy weeknights. Chicken, in particular, is at its best in the crock pot, tender and flavorful.

So I have rounded up some of the best gluten-free, slow-cooker chicken recipes from my food blogger friends on social media!

If you are new to the gluten-free diet and feeling overwhelmed by the steep learning curve, you will find easy and delicious dinner recipes to help you start your journey. And if you are a veteran at gluten-free, you will be inspired by new hearty and healthy slow cooker recipes to add to your collection.

Whether a gluten-free novice or a veteran, you will love the variety of (always) delicious and (mostly) healthy dishes.

Simple, Real Ingredients

These recipes start with simple ingredients like boneless skinless chicken breasts, chicken thighs, or drumsticks. All of these can be purchased in value packs at the grocery store to save money and feed a crowd. Or you can freeze half of your dinner (prepped/uncooked or leftovers out of the crockpot) for another day.

They are easily paired with filling dinner sides and bases, including white rice, brown rice, cauliflower rice, a variety of fresh or canned vegetables, quinoa, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and tortilla chips.

Most of these recipes include basic pantry staples, but a few will surprise you with ethnic ingredients that will expand your pool of wonderful, gluten-free ingredients.

I hope these slow cooker recipes inspire you to see all you CAN eat on a gluten-free diet!

Gluten-Free Ingredients

Some of these recipes are from amazing gluten-free bloggers. If you try and love a recipe from a gluten-free blogger, I encourage you to follow them for more of the same wonderful gluten-free inspiration.

Gluten-free bloggers tend to recommend specific brands for their recipe ingredients if there is a risk of buying a product that may contain gluten. They do this in the “chatty” section before the recipe.

Side note, if you want to skip that chatty part and get straight to the recipe, nearly all food bloggers have a “jump to recipe” button at the top of each post. Click that button and you are taken straight to the recipe.

Other recipes in this Roundup of Gluten-Free, Slow Cooker, Chicken Recipes are from wonderful food bloggers who are not dedicated gluten-free. Their delicious recipes below are all completely gluten-free, but make sure you select brands that are gluten-free for your ingredients.

Specifically, look for a gluten-free label on chicken broth, bouillon, seasoning blends, and all sauces, including gluten-free tamari instead of traditional soy sauce (which contains wheat).
