A Crock-Pot allows you to cook chicken at a slow pace over low heat, which produces tender and juicy meat, but may not have the flavor that grilled chicken offers. Slow-cooking the chicken first and then grilling it allows you the best of both worlds. Your Crock-Pot will cook the chicken through, and the grill will enhance the flavor and add some crunch. Served with grilled potatoes and assorted vegetables, the Crock-Pot and your outdoor grill help you prepare a tasty and healthy meal.
