Dry chicken in the slow cooker?

I've been trying to use my slow cooker more, with some good result, EXCEPT: with chicken. For some reason, it comes out dry and stringy!

My most recent attempt was a chicken malaga, where I browned a whole chicken (cut up) in a skillet with some onion, garlic, etc, then threw it in the crock pot with white wine, mushrooms, olives, and herbs. There was plenty of liquid left at the end to make sauce, but the chicken meat was noticeably dry. Any recommendations on what I can do?
