What to Serve with this Recipe

Can you put raw chicken in a slow cooker?

Yes. You can cook raw chicken in a slow cooker provided you cook it with the lid on and long enough for the chicken to cook through. The steam and heat from the slow cooker should easily cook your chicken from raw to fully cooked. Always check to make sure juices run clear and the meat is white

Can I overcook chicken in the slow cooker?

Yes, you can. If chicken cooks too long, it will turn tough and rubbery. To avoid tough chicken cook it low and slow and make sure that there is enough sauce and juice covering it while it cooks

Storing and Reheating

Store your slow cooker sour cream chicken in a closed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days

Reheating: Microwave or warm up in a saucepan over the stove
