5) Mix it all together.
6) Add the chicken and stir around as best you can to coat all in the liquid.

To serve I pour out some of the liquid into a saucepan, added about a tablespoon of corn starch (cornflour) that is dissolved in water and brought it to the boil for a thick, thyme gravy.
Serve with rice or mashed potato and vegetables.
If you wish to add vegetables in these recipe it should go into the bottom of the crockpot, with the meat on top. This arrangement will also help prevent the chicken from overcooking.
Add tender vegetables like tomatoes, mushrooms and zucchini during the last 45 minutes of cooking time so they don't overcook.
