If you live in any cold place you know the GREAT perks of a slow cooker. You throw the food in and can leave it for hours without touching it! I love love love my slow cooker.
Baby chickens! I love a good slow cooker chicken, they are usually moist and so simple. This recipe is so simple and quick, also has all the seasonings that are fairly common to a household.
Number 1: Putting onions under the chicken, I’ve seen this in many recipes but never understood why. Well when you don’t add water to your chicken (I think it comes out more moist when you DONT add water) the onions help with moisture. It doesn’t add any taste and honestly is a pain in the butt to clean when done. So its a preference step.
The rule of “When it smells good its done” greatly applies to this. Or “wiggling a leg loose”!
I cook on high 4-5 hours for a 4lb chicken. 5-6 for 5-6 pounds or low for 8ish hours. When it comes to crock pot timing, you just have to do trial and error as every pot holds the heat differently.
