Frequently Asked Questions:
Are slow cookers a healthy way to cook?
Of course! As long as you use it correctly and make sure that meats are still cooked long enough, you can make balanced, safe, healthy meals in a slow cooker.
Can I put frozen chicken in the crockpot?
Yes you can! Because of the slow and long process of cooking, the chicken will thaw and cook with the rest of the ingredients.
Can you cook in a slow cooker without liquid?
Sure, if the recipe you are following doesn’t require it. But most recipes will call for some sort of liquid, even if it’s a sauce or cream.
