    Never cooked with a crockpot before, so I’m curious…I just put the chicken in the crockpot with nothing else, as the recipe states, for 3 hours? It won’t burn or stick to the pot??

    • Heidi says

      Hi Cindy ~ yes… that’s correct. The juices from the chicken will quickly drain and the chicken will cook in that. After 3 hours I drain the juices and add in the sauce to the crockpot for another 30 minutes. That will allow for a thicker and tastier sauce. Hope that helps!! Have fun cooking with your crockpot! ;)

    I prepared this recipe at the fire station tonight only I substituted 4 fresh cloves of minced garlic for the garlic salt and used approx. 1 tsp of seasoned salt.
    Served it on fresh flour tortillas,chopped baby spinach,three blend mexican cheese and black beans.
    Thank you so much for the new recipe, the men really liked it!

    So do you mix the chilies and garlic salt with the drained juices? Is that what makes the sauce?! Or is the sauce just the chilies and the garlic salt?

    • Heidi says

      Hi Martha ~ you’ll remove the drained juices, toss, and then add the chiles and garlic salt. Hope that helps!

    I have a small crockpot as I’m only cooking for myself, and am having problems finding recipes for one or two people. I’ve tried cutting down the ingredients, but somehow the meals don’t come out as I expect them to. Are there cookbooks for small portion-size crockpots?
