The nice thing about slow cookers is that you can toss everything in and turn them on and ignore them til dinner time.

Stack your foods into the cooker in any order you like or stir them all up.

Just make sure you have sufficient liquid in the cooker to prevent burning! They make nice liner things now to keep cleanup to a minimum!! Burnt on BBQ sauce is not nice to remove from your crock!

After your chicken is fully cooked.

Oh yeah, I usually wait until there is about 2 hours left for cooking on the meat, then throw a bunch of potatoes and carrots in. That way they all finish cooking together.

As far as the BBQ sauce, you can put that in as soon as you add the chicken.

put it all in at same time

Answer by Joe C
I would put the onions and potatoes in first, then the chicken right on top of them. You might need a little liquid to keep from burning, but the chicken will release some as it cooks. I think putting all in at the same time will be fine. I personally would add the bbq sauce later, but it is up to you. The bbq sauce really does not need to cook and you don’t want it burned.

I would do the onion, chicken and BBQ sauce by itself at first. The sauce shouldn’t burn, if it’s a slow cooker, but I would throw some chicken stock in it, to make sure it doesn’t dry out. maybe a 1/2 cup, to 1 cup, depending on how much you are making.

The potatoes depend on how big you’re going to leave them. If you make them bite size, then leaving them in a slow cooker for 4 hours is going to turn them to mush.

Best is to just roast your potatoes little red potatoes or yukon gold in the oven, around the last hour or so of cooking time on the chicken. Just make 1 inch thick bite size pieces and put them in a large ziplock bag, and add some olive oil, salt and pepper, and rosemary, minced garlic and balsamic vinegar (which is a great marinade, or balsamic vinaigrette dressing). Mix it all up, and put it on a baking sheet.

Now you have all this great chicken, and you can eat it with healthy, tasty potatoes one night, then tomorrow, if you have leftover chicken, you can put it in a sandwich role, and have an awesome BBQ chicken sandwich.

Yes. The best way to use the Crock-Pot (Slow Cooker) is by putting the chicken and vegetables in at the same time. BBQ sauce…you might want to add a wee bit of water to that (depending on quantity of food…as much water as sauce I guess) or else it will be the sauce that burns, not the meat and potatoes. Once you have figured out all your ingredients, give the whole thing a toss, and let it cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hrs. You may want to add garlic, mushrooms or carrots to add variety. Try not to lift the lid till the end of cooking time, this will cause the heat to leave and then it will take longer to cook.

Try this book (very good one) Canada’s Best Slow Cooker Recipes by Donna-Marie Pye (I have the French translation – Les Meilleures recettes à la mijoteuse). Enjoy!
