Recipe Notes

While most slow cooker recipes can be cooked on either LOW or HIGH heat with an adjustment of cooking time. That is not recommended for this recipe. Longer cooking times with chicken often dry out the meat. A shorter cooking time at a higher heat with a recipe that has some sauce is it is a reliable way to prepare chicken in the slowcooker.
