I just got a crock pot....but I've never used one before! I purchased a small one. It's just 3 quarts. My first dish that I'm tackling is a chicken dish. It calls to chop up the chicken to bite size pieces and then submerge it in liquid. Since the crock pot is small, does it matter that all of the chicken will not touch the bottom surface? I mean, it will cook evenly, since it'll be on low for so long, right? I know this may seem silly, but I'm having a guest over that evening and don't want to look like the only person in the world that can't use one of these things.
