I posted in the crock pot group. Was told I could cook my roaster in the crock pot but the chicken pretty much fills the crock pot. Is that okay? Also do I cook it on high or low? I've never done chicken in a crock pot before. Oh, and does it need water/broth added to it? I have some butter, and seasonings on with it.

Sorry!  I was outside weeding strawberries!

It's okay that the chicken fills the crockpot.  We raise our own chickens to dress out about 6 to 7 lbs., and they barely fit in my large crock.  They cook just fine.  Cook it on low for 8 to 10 hours, or on high for 4 to 5 hours.  No need to add water or broth.  If you place it breast down, the natural juices will run down and keep the breast meat moist.

It's perfectly fine!  That's one of the reasons I created this group, to help others learn.
