Can I cook a whole chicken in the crockpot???

I thawed a chicken for dinner, went to the grocery store and spent too long there with coupons, no time to cook the chicken for dinner so we improvised for dinner. So you say put the chicken in the fridge till tomorrow then cook? Great idea except there isn't room for a grape in the fridge much less a whole chicken......I want to toss it in the crock pot if possible. ANyone ever done it?

throw it in with chopped onion and garlic, loosely stuff some in the cavity and season like normal. You can prop the chicken up on some potatoes or foil balls if you want a more roasted type chicken, but i usually dump a beer in for a nice flavor no props. The chicken literally just falls apart

I remove the skin before throwing it in the crock pot. It works really well.

I do it all of the time. My favorite recipe is lemon and herb chicken in the crockpot. So good!

I do it all the time too but I don't even bother with the thawing. I like to throw in some onion, garlic and seasoning salt. If you want gravy then you can also add a cup of water and put the chicken on top of tin foil balls to keep it up out of the grease.

I did it the other night! I just rubbed it down with Italian dressing and put it in. It fell apart it was so tender and juicy. Yumm.

Just throw a jar of spaghetti sauce on top and let it bake. Make pasta or rice for the sauce to go on...yum!
