IF USING CHICKEN: I love to cook a whole chicken in a slow cooker (I pull most of the skin off before cooking & reserve broth for later use *freezes well*) on high for 4.5 - 5 hrs. Sprinkling bird with salt, pepper and sage and adding 1/2 - 3/4 C water (depending size of slow cooker). Allow to cool, bone and cube or shred, depending on recipe.
**I use this for MANY dishes: Chicken n Dumplings, Enchiladas, Chicken Salad, Chicken Casseroles... Uses are endless!! Be sure to reserve broth, much better than can or box!!
