I have just bought my first crockpot and have read the basic instructions that came with the product. The impression I'm getting is that you always need to cook with a fair amount of liquid. Is this the case?

I've also been looking at the internet about cooking chicken in a crockpot and it's really scaring me with the food poisoning comments. Do you always have to sear the outside before you cook the chicken?

Thanks.

The website lah34a referred you to is the best, it has some great crockpot recipes!

My easiest crockpot recipe is to throw a bag of frozen chicken breasts (skinless,boneless) in the crockpot, empty 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup on top of the chicken & cook on high approximately 4 hours, then serve over rice or noodles. Sometimes I add a bit of garlic or chopped onion, but it doesn't nee anything. My family loves it! You wouldn't believe how delicious those 2 single ingredients come out!

The bag of chicken breasts I get at Walmart, I believe they are about 3lb. For the cooking time, my new crockpot finishes it in 3-4 hours, while my old crockpot takes 5-6 hours.

I don't normally like cream of mushroom soup, but I love this. I tried cream of chicken soup & it didn't taste as good.

An all in one dish. Use enough salsa to cover bottom of crockpot. Next add tomatoes (used my own home made). Sprinkle in the herbs, lime juice and hot sauce. Add the chicken last.

I'm nuts about Orange Chicken but it's usually soooo high in calories. Making it yourself, you can control the calorie count. See the notes at the end for how to cut down on the sugar and an optional cooking method.
