The Best Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker Sep 15th 2014, 10:00, by Lori Lange
We are in the middle of crazy, family, busy-time with school and sports and EVERYTHING! So easy slow cooker dinners like this are perfect: The Best Whole Chicken in the Slow Cooker
Whole chickens are easy enough to roast and everything, but I don’t know why I’ve never thought to just put a whole chicken in the slow cooker. That’s even better! The chicken cooks completely in about 7 hours on low (which is how I prefer to make it), and the meat pulls off super tender and moist and perfect. The skin is even slightly crispy after all is said and done!
This recipe comes from the fabulous new cookbook by blogger Lisa Leake from 100 Days of Real Food. The book is aptly titled, 100 Days of Real Food: How We Did It, What We Learned and 100 Easy, Wholesome Recipes Your Family Will Love. I am loving this cookbook! Actually, I’m loving the whole concept of asking your family to join you on a venture of eating 100 days of real, clean food (no processed stuff). That might be a challenge in my house, but if my family was up to it, I’d be willing to go for it for sure! Author Leake shares her family’s story with you in her book. And the recipes shared are great, family-friendly ideas… things like Whole Wheat Banana Pancakes, Cinnamon- Raisin Quick Bread, Cinnamon- Apple Chips, Cheesy Broccoli- Rice Casserole, Homemade Chicken Nuggets and Carrot Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting. Is there anything super outrageous in the book? No. These are meant to be recipes that your family will enjoy. I think it’s a great experiment to try on your own family. Go for it!
This recipe absolutely could not be any easier. A whole chicken is placed in your slow cooker with some chopped onions, and a mixture of spices rubbed on your chicken and that’s it! Turn it on for 6 hours and dinner is ready later. So easy.
