Hi Hi Guys!!!
I have a super great,
whole crockpot chicken recipe
to share with you!
I am soooo glad I found this recipe!
The Best Whole Chicken In A Crock Pot.
I'm always dubious when someone titles their recipe "the best" or "best ever" or "absolutely incredible."
But this whole chicken in a crockpot really is THE BEST whole chicken in a crockpot!
And look at that awesome broth in the bottom that can be refrigerated or froze
for upcoming soups and dishes!
I used this crockpot chicken for an apple, black bean and rice recipe one night that called for rotisserie or cooked chicken. We made panini sandwiches out of the leftovers the next day and day after.
So this recipe is from www.100daysofrealfood.com
100 Days is one of my favorite websites, ever!
This chick, Lisa Leake, is completely
down-to-earth and she shares all real or whole foods recipes.
Her story of how and why she started a website is just so normal....she just wanted her family to start eating better by cutting out
That could be any of us, right?
We all want to eat better.
Mix 'er all up!
Cut up an onion...
I used what I had in the fridge,
1/2 red and 1/2 yellow...
Throw the onions in the bottom of the crockpot first....
Then rub the spice mixture all over the chicken, including under the skin of the breasts and inside the cavity...and set the chicken on top of the onions in the crockpot.
Cook on high for 4 hours.
And here's what four hours looks like!
I have to say,
this was the first time I made this chicken,
and it had a nice scowl on it.
this is a picture from just TODAY
(YES, I made it again today!)
and the scowl isn't there this time,
but the flavor is still the same!
Now skim that bad old fat from the top and throw
the fat away!
The broth on the left there will be frozen for future use
in a soup.
The chicken, pulled out of the refrigerated broth, will be used for sandwiches or soup yet this week.
So out of this one chicken comes a bunch of pulled white and dark meat chicken and about a cup or cup and a half of yummy chicken broth.
will use that in soups and other recipes here in the next few weeks.
