One of our members I think, suggested a crockpot cookbook. I think that's a great idea! Since you do not have a wife and children, you'll wish to look for a cookbook for one or two people. You'll be able to freeze leftovers for later meals, which does save very much time! /QUOTE]

Here is a web site I use a lot. Crock-Pot Ladies - Easy Crock-Pot Recipes –

Make sure you get thighs! White meat chicken will overcook and dry out in a slow cooker.

No, no, it's a typographical error. It's supposed to say "Laddies."

White meat does dry out. Thighs are perfect!

Well, I'm kinda stuck with boneless chicken breasts this time. They've been in my freezer for a couple months and the frost has reached arctic tundra status. Since I have to defrost, the chicken must be crocked. Any suggestions on keeping it moist? What if I throw a couple cans of chicken noodle soup in with it? Or clam chowder? My options are limited.

Is the slow cooker the only cooking method you have available to you?

Cooking with liquid does not prevent meats from drying out; overcooking causes meats to dry out. Adding liquid, like a soup, stew or sauce, will help with the flavor, but when meat dries out, that means the moisture within the meat is gone and there is no way to put it back. So just be careful not to overcook it.

I have a stove and a microwave, too. I gave away my toaster oven. I'm kind of enjoying just experimenting with the crock pot, though. I'll pretty much eat anything anyways.
