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.

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.

I absolutely love a whole chicken cooked in my crockpot, tastes great and falls off the bone! I never put more than a 1/2 cup of water in mine and lightly salt it. I leave the skin on, because it, not being in the water, will crust somewhat like oven baked, plus it does not add that much fat. I don't sear any meat I put in it.

If you have a Facebook account, put in your search Crockpot girls, they have a great page and website (crockpotgirls.com) for using your crockpot, I've gotten so many recipes from them.
