Whole Chicken in a Crockpot … And It’s GOOD!
Let me apologize for being MIA for more than a week. Between work, Sophie and my new addiction to Homeland (why didn’t I discover this show earlier?!), life’s been crazy! But I’m back … and with a recipe. A delicious and super easy recipe, if you ask me!
I decided to try my hand at cooking a whole chicken. From what I understand, they are far less expensive than buying a single package of chicken breasts. And I’ve always been somewhat scared of cooking a whole chicken or turkey in the oven. But you know me and the crockpot (my BFF). So I used a Weelicious recipe as inspiration and gave it a try.
All I did was put 2 cups of chicken broth in the crockpot. Then I added the whole chicken and sprinkled Kosher salt on the top of the chicken. And that was it! I put the lid on top and cooked it on low for about eight hours. The house smelled like Thanksgiving! And speaking of, whenever I am charged with cooking the Thanksgiving bird, I’m cooking it in the crockpot.
The meat was so tender and juicy! It literally fell off the bone. You can serve it straight from the crockpot with its natural gravy (because there was a lot of it). Or save it for shredded chicken recipes. I was hoping to have leftover to do just that. But between me, Bryan and Sophie, no leftovers were had!
Seriously folks, try this recipe! It was SO good!
And on a somber note, my crockpot broke! I’ll be getting a new one tomorrow.
