Those of us who use precooked chicken and pick it up at the store will find this very useful. We have so many recipes that call for precooked chicken that I needed to find a way to save money buying it from the store, so I figured out how to do it in the Crock Pot. Love that this saves tons of money and that the chicken is so tender it falls right off the bone.
