Expert Tips

When making chicken in a slow-cooker, remove poultry skin and excess fat before cooking to reduce fat in the finished dish.

Brown poultry in a skillet before slow-cooking to add both color and flavor.

Want to take your slow-cooker meal to an outing? Simply wrap the slow-cooker in a towel or newspaper to keep it warm. Attach rubber bands around the handles to secure it for travel.

Using a slow-cooker at high altitude can be tricky. At high altitudes, longer cooking times are necessary for most foods, especially meats. To shorten meat cooking time, try the High setting instead of the Low setting.

Marsala wine is from the Marsala region near Sicily in Italy, commonly used in cooking. It comes in both sweet and dry variations but we recommend using the sweet version of Marsala as the dry makes this dish too acidic.

Serve chicken Marsala on a bed of rice, or over hot cooked pasta.
