  1. In a snaplock bag, add all ingredients and freeze.
  2. Remove from the freezer the night before so it defrosts overnight.
  3. Place ingredients in a slow cooker and cook for 5-6 hours on low; until the chicken is falling off the drumsticks.
  4. If there is quite a bit of liquid, thicken with 2 Tbsp flour mixed with a small amount of water and stir through, cook on high for 10-15 mins to thicken up. Add more flour/water mix if needed.
  5. Season your chicken casserole and serve with mashed potatoes

Tips

FAQs

  • Can you overcook chicken in a slow cooker?
    Yes, it is possible! If the meat is cooked too long it could end up dry and not juicy and tender. Be sure to check on your chicken during cooking to make sure it isn’t drying out.
  • It’s my first time using a slow cooker, what mistakes should I avoid?
    The most common mistakes with using a slow cooker are cooking meat at too high of a temperature, adding too much liquid, not defrosting materials before adding to the slow cooker, and overfilling the slow cooker. But don’t worry, if you follow this recipe you shouldn’t run into any of these common mistakes!
