Tonight I used a recipe that called for chicken breast and said to put in the crockpot with bb sauce on low for 8 - 9 hrs. I left and came home 3 hrs later and it smelled scorched. I was hesistant to lift the lid and when I finally did 6 hrs into cook time it was burned black. This has happened to me when making peanut clusters, also.
No it didn't mention to add water, just bb sauce. I laid 5 breasts across the bottom in a single layer. Boneless and skinless. It seems when I do recipes in my smaller crockpot they are always perfect but this ones always burns, wondering if it is malfunctioning.
