      1. Is it possible to put in raw chicken and just cook longer in slow cooker? Isn’t that part of the point of having a slow cooker recipe?

        1. Great question! Yes you can use raw chicken instead of cooked chicken and cook it longer. You may want to still dice up the raw chicken to speed up the cook time. Hope this helps!
