How do you cook the chicken beforehand? Bake, boil, etc.?

I generally cook my chicken in the crockpot -- I do a bunch at a time and freeze in casserole-size portions, enough for several casseroles. Then I freeze it in freezer bags til I need it. I just throw it in the crockpot with enough water to cover it and let it cook all day on low. It makes it very tender and juicy. But you could cook it any way you like. My sis-in-law always bakes her chicken for casseroles and she really likes it that way.

Thanks! I'd never thought to cook chicken in the crockpot by itself but it's great! And so was the casserole :)
