Last week, I posted a pic on Instagram of a slow cooker (need a new slow cooker?) whole chicken that I made and THE INTERWEBS WENT WILD. Though I did include the recipe on Instagram, I figured that it deserved a post all on its own. Are you following me on Instagram?

I actually tried this recipe for the first time this past Thanksgiving with a turkey breast, which I also (of course) posted on Instagram.
This also received raving feedback. I just knew that I had to try it again, but this time on a whole chicken. I assumed that it would perform the same as the turkey, but I wasn’t 100% sure. Would it create it’s own juice as before? Would it be just as flavorful and tender?
The answer was yes.
This chicken (and turkey) is the easiest and most delicious one that I have ever made. I seriously could not get over how yummy it was and the amount of juice that was created without any added. Another bonus was that it created a ton of leftovers for chicken salad, shredded chicken tacos and the most savory juice for gravy!
Okay, let’s just get on the recipe, shall we? 🙂
Yield: 1 whole chicken
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
Cook Time: 6-8 hours on low
Friends, make this chicken or turkey soon. You will be so impressed and never use the baking method again, I promise! Need a new slow cooker? CLICK HERE!
