Dawnwch that is a good tip about browning the chicken, but olive oil isn't a low fat alternative, all fats have the same amount of calories.

Can this be done in a slow cooker?

How long should you cook chicken in slow cooker?

Yes, this can be done in a slow cooker. It should take about 7 to 8 hours on low heat.

Is the chicken going in raw? Will it cook in 2 hours? I'm kind of new at cooking but chicken scares me anyway with salmonela and stuff. Thank you.

Buy yourself a good meat thermometer. Then you won't have to rely on people you don't know to give you advice they may be uncertain about themselves. But yest the chicken goes in raw and should cook easily in 2 hours under the correct circumstances.

Many people like to pre-brown the chicken to give it a better color in dishes like this. Just brown the chicken pieces in a couple tablespoons of butter (or olive oil for a low-fat alternative). Brown 4-5 mins per side at medium heat. This gives a slight boost to the overall cooking time also.
