GB! I'm sorry I didn't see this post till now! (really, I wasn't ignoring you)

The chicken scampi is a very forgiving recipe! You can cut it down in size and all things will still come out perfectly. For four people, I'd say you'd want maybe 3 chicken breasts? (These are the typical half breasts, like the kind you can buy frozen in a big bag at Costco)

I've never had chicken dry out in a crockpot - quite the opposite! As long as you have liquid in there, and don't keep checking up on it, you're fine! I do prefer to go bone-in, as the meat is so much cheaper (unless you'll be doing a chopping of the meat, such as the scampi).
The turkey I made on Sunday (the other recipe I posted here) was so moist! And, since it had cooked so long, I literally pulled the clean bones out in about a minute.

Good luck!

You are so welcome!

(PS --it's a really great dish for potlucks! Even though I prefer it over pasta, it's also good over rice)

We like to put a whole chicken in the CP, top it with butter pats and crush dry Basil over the top. When the chicken is done, remove the broth and if needed add more water and cook rice in the broth (in another pot)

Need "hot & spicy" slow cooker recipes

Hi,

My mother-in-law gifted me a slow cooker (Rival brand) and I used it only once when she was here. I am from India and love hot spicy food and what she prepared was a little bland for me. I am a vegetarian but my husband isn't. Does anybody have hot spicy recipes for slow cooker ?

There are a couple of members here who are Indian and Pakistani ethnic origins.... although I don't know whether they use a slow cooker or not.
