I just discovered this incredibly easy way to prepare a whole chicken! Seriously, no prep AT ALL! Love it. The chicken is tender and great for shredding into tacos, soups, salads, etc.
4 lb Whole Chicken
Place in crockpot, add in lemons and garlic if you have it – if not, no problem!
Cook on High for 3 hours. If 5 lb bird, cook 3.5 hrs.
Allow chicken to rest 10 minutes before cutting into it. The skin will not be crisp like a roasted chicken, but the meat will be moist and tender!
Don’t forget to use that chicken later for homemade chicken broth!!
