Slow Cooker Whole Chicken

Lisa Swarm


Those of us that use precooked chicken and pick it up at the store will find this very useful. We have so many recipes that call for precooked chicken that I needed to find a way to save money buying it from the store so I figured out how to do it in the crock pot. Love this saves tons of money and that chicken is so tender it falls right off the bone.
