Description

This is a great way to make a whole chicken. Rotisserie makes such a juicy chicken – and it’s great with sides like potatoes and gravy, or shredded for enchiladas, or in a chicken salad, pulled meat sandwiches, chicken soup, pot pie or a Midwest Haute Dish!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Chicken, Small Enough To Fit Into Your Slow Cooker
  • 2 Tablespoons Homemade Seasoned Salt, See My TastyKitchen Recipe Box For Recipe
  • 3 pieces Aluminum Foil

Preparation

1. Prepare your slow cooker by taking 3 pieces of aluminum foil, crumple them into 3 balls. Toss into the bottom of your slow cooker. The foil balls will hold your chicken up out of the juices that drip. Remember to save the juices afterwards!
2. Now prepare your chicken. “Rinse it, pat it, and mark it with a C…” Rinse out the whole chicken, remove any bags or necks, etc from inside, rinse the insides and drain out. Pat chicken with paper towels to dry.
3. Place the chicken on top of the aluminum foil balls and into your slow cooker breast side up. Very carefully pull the skin up all around the chicken. It took me years to be able to do this as I still hate touching raw meat and thinking about meat in general. Squeamishly rub about 1/2 Tablespoon of seasoned salt underneath skin. Pour 1/2 Tablespoon seasoned salt into cavity. Rub 1/2- 1 Tablespoons seasoned salt on outside of the bird all over, underneath, sides, wings, and top.
4. Cover and set your slow cooker to low. Leave it alone for 7-8 hours.
5. Be careful when you take it out, this tender chicken will literally fall off the bone when you take it out. Transfer to a plate and serve.

Foil in the crockpot…what a great concept! Going to try this with some chicken pieces…

I make chicken like this ALL the time! I usually stuff a cut onion and some garlic cloves in the cavity as well..don’t think it makes a world of difference, but I like doing it anyway. And you are right- it literally falls apart when it’s done. I have never been able to transfer it whole out of the crock. It may not look pretty, but it sure tastes amazing!

Thanks mandre for the wonderful reveiw. I am so glad it turned out for you. Slow cookers are tricky only when you leave it too long, I always used to do that and wonder why it dried out. I though because it was steamy in there it would never dry out but it does. Try a little less time next time and it should be good :)

This really is fabulous! I didn’t think putting the spices under the skin would really matter, but it made a huge difference. I’ve done chicken with the same slow cooker method before, but with the seasoning on just the outside– this way is way, way better! I prepped the chicken the night before, then placed it on the foil balls in the slow cooker in the morning before work. Fabulous dinner; simply fabulous!

This was fantastic. I tried it one day and the next weekend at my mom’s we used it again. It is so much cheaper than the ones from grocery store which I buy mostly because they are already cooked and it will save me time. Now I put a chicken in the crockpot in the morning before leaving for work and it is done when I get home and can eat as is or make so many other recipes.
I have changed the seasonings to reflect what I have on hand or am planning on using the cooked chicken for.

OMG…so good. SO GOOD. And yes, be careful lifting out of the pot because it DOES fall off the bone! The breasts were a tiny bit dry, but I am certain that was something done wrong on my end. DELISH – with great leftovers. Easy peasy. Made it with Ree’s Potatoes Au Gratin and we were in heaven. THANKS!
