Note: This recipe is part of the Slow Cooker for Two series, which requires at least one 3 ½-quart slow cooker and two slow cooker plastic liners. Pair this recipe with those tagged SCfor2, noting any time difference.
  1. Insert the liner into the slow cooker, fully opening the bag and draping the excess over the sides.
    (Or, if this is the second recipe, insert the liner into the remaining space in the slow cooker, fully opening the bag, and draping the excess over the sides.) 
  2. Add the potato to the bottom of the liner, cover with the chicken, and season with salt and pepper. 
  3. In a small bowl, combine garlic, tomatoes, and 1 tablespoon of jerk seasoning (reserving the rest for another use); pour over the chicken. 
  4. Fold the top of the bag over to one side, and push the ingredients at the bottom of the liner to create room for the second bag. 
  5. (Or, if this is your second recipe, fold the top of the bag over to the opposite side of the first bag, and nestle the ingredients of both bags so that they are sharing the space evenly.) 
  6. Follow directions for your second recipe. 
Completing the recipes:
  1. Each closed bag should be draping away from the other, extending over the sides of the slow cooker. 
  2. Cover and cook on LOW:
    4 hours:
    -Chicken marsala with mushrooms & sage
    -Chicken with dried fruit & mustard sauce
    -Jerk chicken & sweet potato stew
    -Raspberry Dijon chicken
    7 hours:
    -Mushroom-stuffed skirt steak
    -Red wine skirt steak 
  3. Move two shallow serving dishes or bowls next to the slow cooker. 
  4. Remove the cover, and using pot holders or oven mitts, carefully open each liner, and remove the solids with a slotted spoon or tongs to its own bowl. 
  5. Still using the pot holders, gather the top of the first liner, carefully lift the bag from the slow cooker, and move it over its serving bowl. 
  6. Cut off a corner of the bag, large enough to allow the remaining contents of the bag to be released into the bowl; discard the liner. 
  7. Repeat with the second liner. 
  8. Allow the dish not being served to cool, and package in a resealable plastic freezer bag or freezer container. 
  9. Label, and freeze up to 3 months. Before serving, taste, and season again with salt and pepper. 
  10. Garnish with cilantro.
