A few weeks ago I came across a recipe for a whole chicken cooked in the crock pot. I thought it was crazy but then decided to try it. It's AMAZING!!!
4-5 pound whole chicken
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 stick butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
season the chicken inside and out with salt, pepper, paprika and garlic
place in crock pot; add the chicken broth and place pads of butter all over chicken.
cook on high for 1 hour, then reduce heat to low and cook for 7 hours. The chicken will literally fall apart.
