Slow Cooker Chicken Recipe - Calls for 6 Hours, I'm Gone for 8?

Hello,

I work an 8 hour day but am trying to put a new meal on the table more frequently, so I'm using my Crock Pot slow cooker. This morning I decided to make this Cilantro Lime Chicken recipe for a slow cooker - source: http://community.qvc.com/forums/Recip...

It says to cook it for 6 hours on low. My Crock Pot will automatically go to a "Warm" setting once the 6 hours are up and stay like that for about 2 hours I think. I'll be gone for probably 8 or 9 hours. Is this going to be a very dried out, overdone chicken meal? Should I try and rush home directly after 6 hours and ... put it in a dish to get cold and then reheat? Should I just try and pick 8 or 9 hour slow cooker recipes from now on? :-)

I guess from a fire safety standpoint I'm ok - I'm mostly worried about whether this is still going to be edible (or, even good!

)

Thanks from a slow-cooker novice!
