Want to slow-cook some chicken for dinner this week? (Maybe this chicken, fennel, and white bean soup? Yum!) Then keep in mind: You should buy chicken thighs, not breasts. That’s because dark meat has more fat than white meat, and as a result, it doesn’t dry out as quickly. Thighs should be slow-cooked for about six hours. (If you prefer white meat, leave them in the slow-cooker—on low—for no longer than five hours.)
