    In the video there was a sauce poured over the sliced chicken. What was in that? Or was it the juices left in crockpot?

      It’s the sauce from the crockpot!

    Can you put potatoes in bottom of crock pot to cook with this?

    If one doesn’t have a slow cooker, is it possible to bake it in the oven at a very low temperature?

    • Gale Compton  June 15, 2020

      Nikki, Sure can! Just check the chicken for doneness and you’re good to go. 🙂
