Tips For Success
As easy as these slow cooker recipes are, we do have some helpful tips to ensure success! Just a few pointers for making sure that your chicken ends up juicy, tender and moist.
- Check the size of the chicken breasts: Depending on where you buy your chicken, chicken breasts can often be huge. If you have a very large chicken breast, slice it in half lengthwise before adding it to the slow cooker.
- Don’t overcook: People tend to think that because a recipe is made in a slow cooker, timing doesn’t matter. It does – some recipes can be more forgiving – some not. Make sure that you allow enough time for the chicken to become tender, but not too long that it ends up mushy.
- Follow the recipe instructions: If the recipe calls for browning the chicken, take the time to do that. Sometimes this extra step adds much needed flavor to the recipe.
