I have read conflicting reviews about cooking boneless skinless chicken breast in a slow cooker. I will be making apricot chicken in the crock pot tomorrow. The recipe calls for a chicken cut into serving size pieces. I am using boneless skinless chicken breast instead. How long do you usually cook it on low? The recipe says 3-8 hours. Pretty wide berth there. Any tips?

Should we feed the neighbor's chicken? The neighbor (who I'm not crazy about) has a lot of chickens. One young rooster is being chased out of the flock by an older, more mature rooster. He's really cute. We are calling him 'Alfred'. [more inside]

What's the story with brown chicken livers? There always seem to be some in the carton, mixed in with red ones. They seem spongier. Are they lower in quality? Should I toss them?

What good recipes do you have for a whole chicken? We're in a chicken co-op and get an organic bird every month, and I'm after interesting ways to cook them. Roast chicken is lovely, but I'm after a bit more variety.

OK, so I've been eating a lot of fried chicken parts (maybe that's a question for another time). Yesterday it was buffalo wings. Today, regular ol' fried chicken. Today I was eating the drumstick and I started to wonder why it was so much bigger than the drumsticks from the wings I had yesterday. I thought maybe the chickens are bigger? Or maybe they're a different kind of chicken? Or maybe it's something else? I obviously tried googling, but I couldn't come up with a good string of keywords. Is this really obvious and I'm missing it? Help please!

Eggs. I love eggs. Every time I use eggs I wonder about food safety but not obcessively so... I think and then I do anyway. There are two things I always do with eggs and I am wondering if they are "magical thinking" routines. [more inside]

I bought a Value Pack of chicken thighs at Safeway, like the frugal shopper I am... and then promptly left them on the kitchen counter for 3 hours, like the absent-minded bumbler I am.
Scenario: cold chicken, fairly cold kitchen (maybe 65, as the heat hadn't been on all day), sealed package, November 2nd expiration date.
I am assuming I just screwed up and wasted $9 worth of chickeny goodness. Am I right?
