Cooking Tricks and Tips

Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Cooking Instructions

1. Add water to meal in crockpot. 

Small Portion (SP) - Add 1/2 cup of water
Regular Portion (RP) - Add 3/4 cup of water

2. Cook on low for 1-2 hours (thawed) or 2-3 hours (frozen).

3. If desired, remove meatballs from sauce and blend sauce in a blender for a smooth consistency. Return meatballs back to crockpot.

Slow Cooker (Crockpot) Sizes

The size of your crockpot can affect the outcome of your meal. If your crockpot is smaller than what we recommend, you may need to cook your meal a little longer. If it’s larger than what we recommend you may need to shorten the cooking time. You will need to keep a close eye on the chicken as it cooks. Here are the crockpot sizes we recommend for each meal size to help cook your meals just right:

Smaller Portion (SP) - 3-Quart
Regular Portion (RP) - 4-Quart
Bigger Portion (BP) - 6-Quart
