After all, there is absolutely nothing better than arriving home to the mouthwatering scent of a simmering slow-cooked meal without having to lift a finger. With only a little chopping to do in the morning before turning the crockpot on, you simply cannot beat the minimal prep time. (Which is what we need at this time of year.)

In an effort to bring the most popular slow cooker recipes to your home, we scoured Pinterest for the most pinned crockpot meals of the season. What's more is that each of them have over 100,000 repins and only take five to 15 minutes to prepare. From delicious recipes from The Recipe Critic to Life in the Lofthouse, here are three of the best slow-cooker recipes to try this fall for a warm and hearty meal. Get ready for some seriously easy and delicious weekday meals with these three easy recipes.


     4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed

     8 oz. sliced mushrooms

     18 oz. cream cheese, softened

     1 can of cream of chicken soup

     1 envelope dry onion soup mix

     Salt and pepper to taste

     Fresh parsley for garnish

     1 lb. egg noodles 


Place the chicken in the bottom of a lightly greased slow cooker, then add the mushrooms. In a medium bowl, add cream cheese, cream of chicken soup, and dry onion soup mix. Mix until incorporated, then spread on top of chicken and mushrooms.

Cook on low for four to six hours, or on high for three to four hours. Serve over noodles and top with fresh parsley and salt and pepper.

     2 (1 oz.) packages of dry onion soup mix

     1/2 tsp. paprika

     2 lb. lean beef stew meat

     5 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

     2 to 3 cups of baby carrots

     1 small onion, chopped

     2 (10 oz.) cans of cream of celery soup

     1 cup ketchup


In a large plastic bag, combine the dry onion soup mix and paprika. Add in meat and shake the bag to coat meat with the seasonings. (You'll likely need to do that step in two batches, depending on how much meat can fit in the bag).

Once the meat is coated, spread it out evenly onto a greased seven-quart crockpot. Top meat evenly with diced potatoes, carrots, and onion.
