I have a very simple recipe for you on this Food Friday! This is THE EASIEST whole chicken recipe I’ve ever made (and would make great Superbowl fare!). This past summer, we teamed up with a couple of families and raised meat chickens. Our family ended up with twenty-five delicious whole chickens in our freezer. Up to that point, I usually bought the boneless skinless chicken breast from the grocery store, and had rarely cooked whole chicken. So I needed some yummy and easy ways to cook these birds! This is by far the easiest, and most moist, way we’ve cooked our whole chickens.
Easy “Roast” Chicken
1 whole chicken (be sure to get one that will fit in your crock pot!)
Salt and pepper
Other seasonings or BBQ sauce, as desired
Rinse chicken under cold water and pat dry with paper towel. Place in crockpot. Season with salt and pepper. Then sprinkle with other seasonings as desired, or just dump your favorite BBQ sauce over it! Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or high for 4-5 (low is preferred).
That’s it! At the end of the day, you’ll have the most juicy, delicious chicken. It takes about 5 minutes to put together, and it’ll taste like you spent hours on it!
