I have made this twice, the first time it had a bit to much liquid in it, but I didn't give up! made them again, this time browning them for longer so they became crispy, also i left the lid off for the last 30mins to help dry out the chicken, this time it was delicious! added to my recipe book!

I made the chicken today and left the lid off for about 45 minutes after it was cooked. The chicken did not come out crisp but it was a little drier than usual, which was a good thing. I do take the skin off the chicken before cooking though. Just FYI.

I have made this several times and it is delicious. It doesn't get really crispy, but yummy and tender. I have it in the crockpot right this minute and this time I took the lid off for a while after it was cooked to see if it crisps up any.

I have a question. If I can "fry" chicken,in the slow cooker this way,can I also "fry" pork chops like this also? I have never tried it,but it seems as though it can be done. Thanks in advance. Weezy

I have fixed chicken this way for several years. except I either put the chicken on crumbled foil,or I have a little rack(that fits my slow cooker),so they don't sit in the grease. I don't mind washing a fry pan,cause I know the chicken will be done,and it won't get burned.It comes out so yummy! Weezy

I agree with you, ginakissee. I often wonder how necessary it truly is. So many of the slow cooker recipes here seem to call for pre-browning of meat. It sort of seems like it defeats one of the advantages of cooking with one.

If you have to "heat up butter or oil in a skillet (which means, you have to dirty up a pan), you might as well just cook it in the skillet!

@recipemike1: The cooking time for this recipe will vary depending on the type of slow cooker used, the amount of chicken used and the size of the chicken pieces used. These variables will very much determine how much time is needed to complete this recipe. Hope this helps! - RecipeLion Editors
