Does summer call for grilled barbeques, refreshing cocktails and light salads? Sure, but seriously, who has the time to marinate, chop and blend for hours? Not us and we're pretty sure not you either.

Such lavish dinners call for special reasons. Your busy weeknights call for meals that are all about dump, cook and eat. And what's better to do that than a good-ole crockpot? Check out these 10 dinner ideas that will give you all the inspiration you need to ditch the takeout meals and cook yourself a hearty dinner at home.

Run your errands, pick up your laundry or catch a nap, the dinner will be ready — just in time.

1. Slow Cooker Coconut Lime Chicken

How do you make summer scrumptious? We say, add chicken to your coconut and lime curry and you're golden.

The combo may sound weird at first, but imagine a chicken fillet marinated in coconut curry with the tanginess of lemon — interested, right?

2. Slow Cooker Spicy Chicken & Rice

Nothing is more comforting than coming home to a fragrant spicy rice dish with chicken and veggies.

Simple, easy and flavourful with just the right amount of heat, this dish is easily tossed together in the morning.

3. Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef

Flavorful beef simmered in a fragrant sauce with bright crisp broccoli over a bed of white rice. So much better than take-out!

4. Crock Pot Beef Stew

Easy, hearty and comforting. Toss everything into the crockpot at night then pop into the base and cook the next day.

5. Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers

This one is perfect for the nights you crave an Italian feast. Serve over pasta or with provolone and crusty rolls — your call.

6. Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Pasta

Pasta + chicken + parmesan — does it get any homier than that?

7. Slow-cooker Steak Fajitas

How about whipping up some delicious fajitas without firing up the grill or dealing with blazing hot pans? Sounds good to us.

8. Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

Loaded with enchilada sauce, black beans and corn, this dish beckons those with a penchant for heat.

9. Crock Pot Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Tacos

Put your kids in charge, even they can’t mess this up. The combination of salty, sweet and creamy coconut chicken will leave a taste of summer in your mouth.

10. Crockpot Creamy Cashew Chicken

Forget cashew chicken from a box, come home to a delicious meal that will fill you up with creamy goodness.
