This was my first time ever baking a whole chicken. I figured I'd give it a go and I may just start using whole chickens for my chicken recipes, like I did for Heidi's Smothered Chicken Burritos. It seems like a lot of them use shredded chicken and this is a lot cheaper and gets a lot more chicken.
What you need:
- 1 whole chicken
- Salt-based seasoning
- Remove giblets and rinse whole chicken. Pat try.
- Place 3 balls of aluminum foil in crockpot. (The big secret to it all!)
- Set chicken on top of it.
- Rub chicken with salt seasoning (Kate added garlic cloves under the skin and fresh herbs) and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
