How long do I need to cook it if I double the recipe?
My sauce didn’t caramelize. It was watery, what happened?☹️
I’m sorry to hear that your sauce didn’t caramelize as expected! There could be a few reasons for the sauce not thickening properly:
Too much liquid: If there was too much liquid in the crockpot (either from the ingredients or the chicken itself), it could have diluted the sauce, preventing it from caramelizing and thickening.
Insufficient cooking time: Caramelization and thickening of the sauce often occur in the final stages of cooking. If the cooking time was too short or the temperature was too low, the sauce might not have had the chance to reduce and thicken.
Lack of sugar: Caramelization relies on the presence of sugar in the sauce. If there wasn’t enough sugar in the recipe, or if a sugar substitute was used that doesn’t caramelize well, it could have affected the sauce’s consistency.
Crockpot temperature setting: Using a “low” setting on the crockpot might not generate enough heat to caramelize the sauce properly. If the recipe calls for a “high” setting, ensure you’re using the correct temperature.
Hi, sounds good. Can I use a crockpot liner so cleaning it would be easier? Thanks
