Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe - Calls for 6 Hours, I'm Gone for 8?

NEVER thought about the timer idea! And I have/use one of those! Brilliant!

And yes, I'm with ya on the live and learn. That's how I've learned a lot of what little I know in the kitchen. :-)

Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe - Calls for 6 Hours, I'm Gone for 8?

I used large boneless skinless chicken breasts, and the recipe uses quite a bit of salsa so there's liquid. (And seriously, these chicken breasts are huge and always require a little longer anyhow so that' giving me hope). I've since read that boneless skinless chicken doesn't do great in a slow cooker so we'll see.

As crazy as it sounds, I can't recall what type of slow cooker/ crock pot I have. I just know it's medium size, digital programming, and you can take and carry. I told ya, I'm a noob! :-)

Thank you for the replies so far!

Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe - Calls for 6 Hours, I'm Gone for 8?

Hello,

I work an 8 hour day but am trying to put a new meal on the table more frequently, so I'm using my Crock Pot slow cooker. This morning I decided to make this Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe for a slow cooker - source: http://community.qvc.com/forums/Recip...

It says to cook it for 6 hours on low. My Crock Pot will automatically go to a "Warm" setting once the 6 hours are up and stay like that for about 2 hours I think. I'll be gone for probably 8 or 9 hours. Is this going to be a very dried out, overdone chicken meal? Should I try and rush home directly after 6 hours and ... put it in a dish to get cold and then reheat? Should I just try and pick 8 or 9 hour slow cooker recipes from now on? :-)

I guess from a fire safety standpoint I'm ok - I'm mostly worried about whether this is still going to be edible (or, even good!

)

Thanks from a slow-cooker novice!
