    This recipe is awful. I even took into account what other folks said & made it 12 oz can of OJ w/ 24 oz of water to keep it from burning & drying out. It dried out anyway. It was terrible. The flavor was bitter and nasty. I know this recipe is in the "Fix IT and Forget It Cookbook". Yuk. - 1/11/13

    If your food drys out in your slow cooker you may need a new one. Typically they are air tight and so the steam and liquid will condense on the lid and baste the food while it cooks. Ive never had dry chicken and I do mine in the crock pot weekly with NO added liquids at all! - 9/22/09

    sounds like it needs more liquid before cooking in slow cooker so it won't dry out. - 11/5/08

    Isnt the cooking time for this receipe too long?
    that will make it dried out, overcooked and burned.
