Choose recipes that call for less tender cuts of meat, such as beef chuck, brisket, pork shoulder or stew meat. The cooker must be at least 1/2 full and no more that 2/3 full, so adjust ingredient amounts accordingly. Cut potatoes, carrots, parsnips, and other dense vegetables into bite-size pieces. The vegetables go in the bottom of the cooker. (Add tender vegetables, such as broccoli and green beans, the last 30 minutes of cooking.) Place the meat on top of the vegetables. Reduce the total amount of luqiid in your recipe by about half.

Yes you can successfully cook a whole chicken in a slow cooker. Spray the cooker with non-stick spray and layer some sliced onion and chopped celery to the bottom. Butter the bird and season it to taste. Slow cook on low for 6 hours. The onions and celery add some flavor and prevent the chicken from sticking to the bottom, but will dry up, so do not serve them.
