When cooking meat or soups it is best to do low and slow in the slow cooker. It helps enhance the flavor of the dish while keeping the meat tender. High heat can make meat tough and chewy.
If your chicken is dry after being cooked in your slow cooker, that means you allowed it to cook too long. Depending on thickness of chicken the cook time will vary. Use a meat thermometer to check internal temperature of chicken to know when it is done.
All slow cookers vary a bit but the average temperature of a slow cooker on low is 190 degrees F.
