Tell me the truth! Do you use your slow cooker more during the winter or are you the kind of person that uses it all throughout the year? I would have to say that I’m a mixture of both. There is just something so comforting in the winter about having a slow cooker going with soup or hot chocolate but I also love to use it in the summer for things like this Crock Pot Chicken!
I know that most people only use their slow cookers in the winter, but hello….summer is the perfect time to use them! I mean, really….how many of you want to heat your house up for roasted chicken in the middle of the summer? July Mid Summer Heat and a chicken roasting in the oven? Hum…. I don’t know many people that would get excited about that.
Roasted chicken in the slow cooker though? Um, yes please! That slow cooker isn’t going to heat your house up, y’all! Well, if it does then we need to talk to you about getting a different slow cooker haha.
A slow cooker, a whole chicken, some spices….. that’s really all you need to make this. Oh and you might want to make sure that you have some aluminum foil on hand.
You don’t have to use it but when I cook chicken in the slow cooker I like to have something under to keep it from just sitting in the juices as it cooks.
Sometimes I use little red potatoes and carrots, sometimes I use celery and sweet potatoes and then sometimes I just use a few sheets of aluminum foil rolled up into balls.
You just toss them in there and then place your seasoned chicken on top of them. 🙂
Here is a little side note, like some ovens, some crockpots and slower cookers might cook a tad bit different then others. I cook this chicken on high for 4 hours or until the chicken is done. Chicken is done when it reaches 165° F. Don’t overcook this or you’ll have dry chicken, so make sure to start checking it somewhere between 3:30 hours and 4 hours 🙂
Also, guess what!!!!! My Nashville trip is almost here! I can’t wait! This time next week I’ll be in Nashville, TN with my future sister in law and her BFF Brittany ….hopefully having a blast! haha
Anything fun that we should do while we’re there?
