Last week I looked at the Crockpot Garlic Chicken recipe, and I never made it because I thought it looked a little "funny". I finally figured it out - there's no liquid in the recipe.

Today I decided to try the recipe but with some broth and wine. I'll let you know how it turns out later.

Elaine -- I thought that was strange also, but I have never used my new-to-me (from my mil) Crock Pot and thought that was normal for Crock Pots. Don't you think the chicken would produce enough juice on it's own?

Wow, the chicken turned out wonderfully. I didn't follow the recipe exactly as I didn't have all the ingredients, but it sure tastes really good! Moist, tender and very flavorful. The sauce is to die for (as I added chicken broth and white wine as well)!!

scmom, I don't know if the chicken can produce enough juice on it's own. I've never made anything in the crockpot without adding some liquid, even just a little.

I'll be eagerly waiting for Barbara's result with the chicken...
