Also, I have never had good luck with chicken in the crockpot. I find it dries out. I have been told that if I used chicken with the bone in then it should not dry out. Do you find that the chicken dries out in this dish or does it stay juicy?
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.
