Whole Chicken Crock Pot Recipes

Whole Chicken Crock Pot recipes are very popular and that’s why I thought to feature another article about the magic crock pot.

Cooking with a crock pot saves not only time but makes the best and juiciest chicken you can find. Most families love chicken, so choosing whole chicken crock pot recipes is a no-brainer, and they’re easy to find online too.

Many times, baking a whole chicken runs the risk of over cooking and dry meat. No one likes that, so why risk it? Slow cook your meals year round and don’t sacrifice taste or convenience.

Finding slow cooker recipes is great, but did you know that you can cook a whole chicken without a recipe? Sure can. All you do is put the bird in your slow cooker with about a cup or so of water, your favorite seasonings and veggies and let it cook for eight hours. If you need to cook it for ten hours, that’s ok too. Your poultry will be perfect as is, or for shredding and using in casseroles, chicken chili or BBQ sandwiches.

Here are a couple of delicious whole chicken crock pot recipes to try as well:

4 cloves of garlic, minced

Place chicken, breast side up, over onion. Separate garlic into cloves, but don’t peel cloves. Arrange garlic cloves around chicken. Cover slow cooker and cook on low 8 to 10 hours.
