I recalled last week one of my lost slow cooker recipes from years ago. When I found it I felt as though I had uncovered a lost treasure, since this recipe so easy, you can hardly call it cooking.
It requires almost no effort, is foolproof and the results are tasty and healthy. Excited?
Here's a picture first:
It is Slow Cooker "Roast" Chicken, and the recipe couldn't be easier.
Slow Cooker "Roast" Chicken
1 whole roasting chicken, between about 4-6 pounds
2 teaspoons of jerk seasoning, cajun seasoning or any old seasoning mix you like
Remove any innards from the chicken (usually the organs (yuck!) are inside the cavity of the whole chicken). Place in the slow cooker. Rub the chicken all over with the seasoning mix.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
As the chicken cooks, the fat melts and bastes the chicken. See all the liquid in the bottom of the slow cooker? That is just from the juices percolating inside the chicken. I didn't add a drop of liquid to the pan. The chicken is so moist, you won't believe it.
We had enough leftover chicken after we ate it for dinner, we made chicken enchiladas the next night. Two meals out of one inexpensive chicken. Love it!
