    Question *If I put my chicken in the crockpot from 9 to 5 am on low, is that too long?*

    Can someone please just tell me if I put a chicken and onions in the crockpot now...what temp. do I put--low, med. or high? I want to leave it the whole night until early tomorrow morning.

    I have never done anything and I don't have time to make a fancy recipe. I just want to cook my chicken or else I will have to freeze tonight...

    you don't need much water because water will come out of the chicken and the onions. I'd add one cup and maybe 1/2 cup more. You want the bottom of the crockpot to be covered with fluid and for it to come over the bottom of the chicken a little bit. Do you have some stock power to add to the water? And I'd add some salt and pepper too.

    Ok, I just put 2 small chicken in my crockpot. They fit in tight...I wonder if that's ok...?

    I put in some chicken stock but I put in more than 2 cups...I didn't measure. It may be at least 3 cups. I added mixed herbs and seasalt....

    What do you think, Rhonda? Is that ok, or I should remove some liquid?

    Thanks so much for helping out here!.

    lucie, it sounds fine to me. You don't want it to dry out but if you have too much liquid you can just pour it off in the morning. It won't be too much liquid to cook in but it might be too much for your sauce. It's ok if the chickens are a tight fit - they won't be lonely.

    Good luck, honey bun!

    You're making me laugh, Rhonda! I wouldn't want my chicken to feel lonely...

    Again, thank-you very much for helping me out, Rhonda. I've been looking at my new crockpot for at least 2 or 3 months now....afraid of trying something...and now, here I was a the last minute trying to see how I could do it....

    I'll let you know how my chickens are tomorrow morning....

    i'm pleased I could help from so far away. It makes me feel all gooey inside. Slow cooking makes delicious food. I bet you love the chicken tomorrow. There are quite a few good recipes in the threads here: https://www.frugalvillage.com/forums/...forumid=165&s=

    I'm about to go out to the front verandah to do my needle work now. Do you have any more questions before I go?

    Yes, it did, Pat! There was alot of liquid, but it it turned out very good! I just fixed all in bags. It was for the boys' school lunches.

    Now I am ready to try a tasty and new recipe! I just need to find one. I'll be checking out the crockpot thread here in the forums.

    Thank-you Pat. If it weren't for you, I'd still wouldn't have a crockpot....
