The Best Whole Chicken in a Crockpot is an absolute staple 100 Days of Real Food recipe! One of the very first to appear on the blog, it also is featured (at least as a sidebar) in all of my cookbooks because I use it every single time I need cooked chicken for a recipe. I sometimes make this chicken and we just eat it plain (so good by itself!), but 9 times out of 10 it’s because I need it for another recipe, many of which I’m sharing below!
If you’ve never made a whole chicken before, NOW IS THE TIME. Not only does this slow cooker recipe make it super duper easy (you don’t even have to touch the raw whole chicken if you don’t want to!), but it’s an incredibly good value to purchase the whole bird, and also way more flavorful than a lean piece of meat all by itself. Just try it at least once…I promise you won’t regret it!
