I was thinking about putting it in the crockpot, but I wasn't sure what I should do with it from there - I would love to know how you cook up the whole chicken in the crockpot, and then what you do with all of the meat aftewards.
I feel like I sound like I don't cook, but the reality is I cook a lot...I just don't typically cook whole chickens - lol
okay i'm all about simple tasty cooking. i take garlic cloves & stick a bunch under the skin & into the cavity. the garlic is really yummy once it's cooked
i then put it on low for about 5 - 6 hours i think. take note the skin will not get crispy but we don't eat the skin anyways. that night we of course eat the chicken. then with the leftovers you can make chicken soup put all the bones into a pot add enough water to cover & simmer away, you can then add veggies you want. make sure to take out the bones & voila you have chicken soup.
