Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • You do not want to put frozen chicken into your crockpot to cook this dish. Be sure it is thawed first. 
  • You can use any part of the chicken for this dish. I recommend that you always choose a boneless type of chicken. Boneless skinless chicken thighs are so good because they offer a lot of flavor to this dish. 
  • Cooking your dish on low allows your chicken to be more tender and juicer than if you cooked it on high. If you do cook your Tuscan chicken on high you will cut the cooking time in half give or take. 
  • You can double the recipe if your crockpot is large enough.
