What changes do I need to make for a 5qt.Crock Pot?
Becky your slow cooker needs to be 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly, and if you are converting a 6 quart recipe to a 5 quart slow cooker. You may not need to change the ingredients. I would measure things out before adding to the slow cooker, and if you feel it will still work in a 5 quart, you should proceed forward. Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
Can we cook this recipe in high? If so how many hours.
As a rule of thumb you can usually cut a recipe crocking time in half if you decide to crock on high, rather than on Low. So I would check it after 2 1/2 – 3 hours! Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking!
How should I adjust cooking time if using boneless, skinless breasts instead. I dont want them to dry out, which always seems to happen when I make them in the crockpot. Thanks 🙂
Patricia the crocking time should stay the same, the key is to make sure your slow cooker is 1/2 – 2/3 full to crock properly, and also to know your slow cooker. If it crocks too hot you will want to invest in a meat thermometer to check your chicken. You can purchase one for about $5. Hope this helps and Happy Crocking!
I have a ‘Set and Forget’ slow cooker. If I make this while I’m at work, it will cook on low for 6 hours and then the setting will change to warm. If I’m not home for 8-9 hours, do you think the veggies will get too mushy or the chicken dried out?
Jen in your case you may want to set your slow cooker to only crock for 5 hours on Low, so you don’t over cook your meal. Hope this works for you. 🙂
making it today cant wait
I am allergic to Onions severely and I would love to try this recipe as well as a few others that call for raw onions, how will that affect the taste/ will it affect the recipe at all?
Lauren, Onions do add flavor, but I am sure the recipe will still be delicious without the onion. You have to do what you need to do, due to your allergy. 🙂
