So with my son’s Crohn’s Diagnosis almost a month ago I’ve had to change a little bit of things around the house. He’s discovered he loves roasted chicken and turkey but getting out at the end of the day to buy one to be warm for dinner is just about impossible during the week. I’d seen several recipes online that were close to what I wanted but not exactly.
I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did!! My son said this is the best chicken ever….it’s my new favorite!! He usually eats all meat with bbq sauce but he said this chicken didn’t need it at all! That’s gotta count for something right?!
- whole chicken, frozen or thawed (I used frozen, minus the bag of giblets in the chicken-I tossed them)
- seasoning salt
- chopped onion
- 1 can chicken broth (I used a bullion cube with 1 cup of hot water)
Sprinkle a little of the onion and seasoning salt on the bottom of the crockpot. Place chicken in the crockpot. Cover the chicken with seasoning salt and onion. Add chicken broth around the chicken (don’t pour on the chicken or you’ll lose your seasoning–if you do just re-season). If your using a frozen chicken cook on high for 8-10 hours. If thawed I’d cook on low for at least 6 hours. About half way through the cook time I took some of the broth in the bottom of the crockpot and spooned some over the chicken. The meat will literally fall off the bone! I had to use tongs to dig it out of the crockpot.
We served with buttered noodles, carrots, and a slice of bread.
I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!
