Crock-Pot A Whole Chicken

This is my trusty crock-pot. I love this crock-pot and it loves me. I give it food and it cooks it for me when I'm too busy. Like this morning, I threw a chicken and some aluminum foil in it... and bam I came home from substitute teaching and I had a whole cooked chicken.

What you need:
  • aluminum foil
  • whole chicken, giblets removed (giblets scare me)
  • salt & pepper
  • paprika or any other spices you like
What you do:
Make three aluminum foil balls (3 to 4 inch), and place them in the bottom of the crock-pot.

Rinse the chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Place the chicken in the crock-pot on the aluminum foil balls.

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic power and whatever else suites your fancy.

Set the slow cooker to high for 30 minutes, then turn down to low for about 6 hours, or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear.

This couldn't be easier!

  1. Looks amazing and easy! God bless our crock pots. What would we do without them?

  2. I'm trying this this weekend. I didn't put any water in it... is that right?

  3. Yep no water needed just aluminum foil balls on the bottom.

    1. The foil balls keep the chicken off the bottom of the pot and out of the liquid that will collect. The chicken ends up being more baked/roasted than cooked in liquid.
