Slow Cooking Thursday for June 7


1 roasting chicken or 2 smaller chickens (I have also done this with bone-in chicken breasts)
Seasoning of your choice

Remove the bag full of “innards” from the chicken and discard it. Rinse the chicken with cold water. Place the chicken in the crock pot. Sprinkle liberally with the seasoning of your choice. I prefer the Montreal Chicken ™ seasoning blend, but Greek seasoning or lemon pepper are two other tasty possibilities. That’s it -- you don’t need to add anything else.

Cover the crock pot and cook for 8 to 10 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high. You will have falling-off-the bone, beautifully seasoned chicken and a lot of good broth. You can freeze the broth to use later for another purpose, or use it as a start on a soup with leftover chicken later in the week.

    wow, this looks like a simple yet VERY GOOD recipe! I'd love to try this one. Have a great week.

  2. well, if that isn't simple, I don't know what is! Thanks for sharing!

  3. This one's great! Thanks!

  4. This is so simple! Definitely going to have to try this one. Thanks for sharing.

    Have a good rest of the week!

  5. Oh nothing like crockpot chicken, it's so moist and tender, love it :)

    Can't wait to try this one :)

    BTW, I did post the recipe for the Smokehouse Burgers on my post, it's also on my food blog if you're interested :)

  6. I've made chicken similar to this before, and it. is. delicious. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I love rotisserie chicken. I'll have to try this.

  8. Hello, everyone!

    It is so nice to see so many friends gathered around my kitchen table!

    Glad you all want to try this recipe. It is so easy and so good -- I sometimes just serve it with instant mashed potatoes and a veggie when we want a quick meal right after church.

    But I also use this recipe when I just want cooked chicken for another purpose, like a chicken salad or chicken pot pie. It's such an easy way to cook a chicken, and since the meat falls off the bones, that part of the job is easy too.

    Sandra, I'll go back and check out the Smokehouse Burger recipe. Thanks! (I'm planning to make your Baked Ham & Cheddar Sandwiches this week. They sound yummy, too.)

    Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
