The 200 recipes in this family-friendly collection deliver a revolution in slow cooking like only America's Test Kitchen can!
Who doesn't like the idea of throwing ingredients into a slow cooker and coming back hours later to a finished meal?

And do you know the secret to a moist slow-cooker chicken? Start the bird upside down to protect the delicate white meat from drying out.
