Raw chicken, no water

Do I need to cook the chicken prior to putting it into the slow cooker and do I need to put a small amount of water into the slow cooker also?

This recipe is great! Even though it’s the “lazy” way it’s so much nicer than if I had cooked it in the frying pan. The chicken was nice and tender and the broccoli was perfect! It has fussy teenage boy approval. It’s a definite keeper.

I would do πŸ™‚

Gave this recipe a try and it is a MUST.. Absolutely divine, I left my partner in charge of cooking the rice to go with it as I was at work and he undercooked the rice (it was still rock hard) but despite our rice issue this recipe was AMAZING!! Thankyou poster 😍
