Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Sizes

The size of your crockpot can affect the outcome of your meal. If your crockpot is smaller than what we recommend, you may need to cook your meal a little longer. If it’s larger than what we recommend you may need to shorten the cooking time. You will need to keep a close eye on the chicken as it cooks. Here are the crockpot sizes we recommend for each meal size to help cook your meals just right:

Smaller Portion (SP) - 3-Quart Crockpot
Regular Portion (RP) - 4-Quart Crockpot
Bigger Portion (BP) - 6-Quart Crockpot

Pressure Cooker (InstantPot) Cooking Instructions

Though Beehive Meals are primarily designed to be cooked within a slow cooker (Crockpot), many of our meals can be cooked in a Pressure Cooker (InstantPot). Please reference our Pressure Cooker Instructions in the helpful links below.

Serving Suggestions

Zesty Italian Chicken pairs exceptionally well with any grain; rice (white or brown), cauliflower rice, couscous or quinoa. Then go green! Add a fresh green salad, broccoli, asparagus, or green beans. Or you could try cauliflower or carrots.

Branch out and use it to make a delicious Italian Pinwheel, perfect for lunches, snacks, appetizers, or even a cute charcuterie board! Take it a step further and create a homemade Chicken Cordon Bleu pizza. SO simple, SO delicious, yet SO easy! Or if you are a pasta lover like all of us here at Beehive, try it as a spicy italian chicken pasta (don't worry, the spicy part is optional). Easy and delicious meals made so simple, with most of the prep already taken out of the equation for you since all you have to do is toss the main part of the meal in the crockpot!
