Publix introduces slow cooker meals


Florida-based Publix wants to make cooking easier. It has introduced three new slow-cooker meal kits throughout its stores.

You just have to go to the meat section of the store to find them.

The kits contain a bag filled with all the ingredients, except the meat. You'll have to go to the butcher, who will add that.

Each bag contains four servings.

There are three different flavors: chicken and dumplings, chuck roast and pork carnitas.

Publix says all the ingredients are fresh and ready to go. The chicken kits sell for $14.99 and the pot roast is $19.99, including the meat.

Publix has 775 stores in Florida. There are also stores in Alabama, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
