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?

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.
Pour the olive oil on bottom of crock pot. Place in chicken breasts, salt and pepper each breast. Put sliced onion under and on top of chicken then put in all the dried herbs and garlic cloves. Pour in vinegar and top with tomatoes
Cook on high 4 hours, serve with pasta.

I'm a bachelor and this is a quick way to have three or more meals fast. What you need depends on what you want to make.
Take boneless chicken breasts and cook in the crock pot with about 2 cups of water on high. Cooking time is a couple hours. Make sure the chicken falls apart with a fork.
Split the chicken into portions to feed the appropriate number.
Freeze in zip lock bags or air tight containers. If some of the chicken is for fajitas, cover with fajita seasoning before freezing. Each recipe requires the chicken to be sliced or chopped up. You can save time and freeze it appropriately.
Put the wraps on a microwave safe plate and cover with a paper towel. Dampen the paper towel first, just wet your hand and flick water onto the towel. Don't put the paper towel in the water; too wet. Microwave for a minute to make hot. You may need to heat them more. Do in thirty second intervals. If you make them too hot you have to wait for them to cool and they harden and get brittle.
Spread mayonnaise or sour creme through the center of the wrap. Add the chicken and veggies. Fold the bottom of the wrap up about an inch to an inch and a half over the chicken. Fold each side over the chicken. Enjoy

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.
Place chicken seasoned with salt, pepper and coriander or cumin in a crock pot set on low. Top with 1/2 jar salsa. Add corn. About 1 hour prior to serving add the remaining salsa and one can drained black beans, stir and allow to heat.
