Once you’ve brought all your boxes into your new home, the last thing you want to do is make a fancy dinner. Our Murfreesboro residential movers recommend these 4-ingredient Crock-Pot recipes to try after moving. Let dinner to take care of itself while you unpack!

Simple Four-Ingredient Crock-Pot Recipes

When you’re in the middle of a move, you usually don’t have a fully stocked fridge or the energy to go to the grocery store. Theses Crock-Pot recipes require only a few ingredients and they’re easy to make so you can focus on settling down in your new house. All you’ll need are some quick ingredients and a Crock-Pot!

Beef & Vegetable Pot Roast
When you’re planning to go to the grocery store after your move, be sure to pick up these ingredients for a roast and onion soup. You’ll need a few packets of onion soup mix, vegetables, potatoes, and a lean beef chuck roast. Chop up the veggies and the potatoes then throw it all in the Crock-Pot for 8 – 10 hours and you’ll be all set to for dinner later on!

Chicken Enchilada
If you’d like to keep dinner light and fun, try this enchilada dip! All you will need are two 8oz packages of cream cheese, a can of enchilada sauce, and two pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts. Add some jalapenos to give this dish a little kick. Set your Crock-Pot to 165 degrees and let the chicken sit in the enchilada mix and cream cheese for 8 – 10 hours. Serve with tortillas.

Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches
Our Murfreesboro local movers say that you can never go wrong with BBQ for dinner! Grab the salt, pepper, a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray’s and some pork roast. Nothing says Tennessee like a BBQ sandwich in your new home. You can leave the roast cooking for the majority of the day (9 – 12 hours) or speed the process up by setting your Crock-Pot on high for 4 – 6 hours.

Apple Sauce Kielbasa
One of the heartiest and most versatile of the 4-ingredient Crock-Pot recipes is an apple sauce kielbasa, which can be eaten alone or paired with pasta or rice. The only ingredients you need are a fully cooked kielbasa sausage (or any sausage that you like), brown sugar, chunky applesauce, and Dijon mustard. Mix the ingredients together in the Crock-Pot, add the sausage, then set it to cook for 7 hours. Whip up a quick pot of pasta or some rice when the kielbasa is almost done. Voila! Dinner is served.

Italian-Style Chicken and Potatoes
For a hearty and healthy meal that requires minimal effort, an Italian style chicken and potato dinner is the way to go. For this dish, you will need chicken breasts, potatoes, vegetables, and some spices.  Though you can bake it in the oven in no time, prepare this meal earlier in the day so it has the whole day to cook slowly in order to soak up all the flavors of the spices and vegetables, leaving the chicken tender and flavorful. Set your Crock-Pot for 7 – 9 hours and pair this meal with a nice salad, fresh mushrooms, or avocado slices.

Spaghetti and Meatballs
You can never go wrong with this classic Murfreesboro movers favorite 4-ingredient Crock-Pot recipe. Grab some spaghetti noodles, a jar of your preferred pasta sauce, and the meatballs! You can either prepare the meatballs by hand before you move or you can purchase frozen ones at the store while picking up the rest of the ingredients. Break the spaghetti down into pieces and empty the entire contents of the pasta sauce into the Crock-Pot with some water and the meatballs. Cook on low for 5 -7 hours. Don’t forget to sprinkle some parmesan before serving!
