Roasted Chicken in the Slow Cooker!!!
I finally found an easy way to make a whole roasted chicken that I don’t have to worry about over cooking, under cooking or it drying out. SLOW COOK IT! Ahhhh. The love I have for my slow cooker is a bit unnatural to some. It lives on my kitchen counter because I use it so much. I laugh when people say they are not willing to drag out their slow cooker for a recipe, yet they are fine with making a huge mess in the kitchen having to use then wash multiple pots/pans to make dinner. Dragging that slow cooker out is worse? Anything that keeps me from doing more dishes or having to slave over the stove gets my vote. One pot to wash! Just one!
I put this bird on a bed of tiny new potatoes to keep it up out of the liquid so it didn’t boil. I wanted it roasted.
Trying to get her on a plate to look pretty for you guys was a challenge. The meat is fall off the bone tender. She may not look the most lady like but I got ‘er on there.
I even make these overnight so I can just shred the meat and freezer for the recipes. I like to use organic chicken and the whole ones are much cheaper and seem to go on sale more.
Simple roasted chicken for dinner. Even your picky eaters will love this. Oh and you can even mash those potatoes. Just add a touch of milk, salt & pepper and they will mash right in the slow cooker because they will be so tender from cooking all day.
