Place the chicken in the bottom of a 6 quart slow cooker.

Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or on high for 2-4 hours.
Remove the chicken to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Transfer the liquid from the slow cooker to a pot and place over medium-high heat.
In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water. Stir into the liquid in the pot. Cook until the liquid slightly thickens.
Place the chicken and the sauce back into the slow cooker and stir to coat the chicken. Serve immediately, or leave the slow cooker on warm or low to keep warm.
