How To Make whole chicken in the crock pot

  • 1
    Remove any giblets from chicken and clean chicken.
  • 2
    In a small bowl, combine all the spices (don't add the chichken broth)
  • 3
    Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
  • 4
    Place the chicken and spices in a large plastic bag, seal and refrigerate overnight. (I only refrigerated it for an hour and it was still flavorful)
  • 5
    Remove chicken from the bag and place in the crockpot
  • 6
    Add chicken broth to the crockpot.
  • 7
    Cook on low 4 hours turn to high for the last 2 hours. Every crock pot is different, if you are planning to put in the crock early before work to be done when you get home I would say 8 hours on low depending on the size of the chicken
  • 8
    Remove from the crockpot and allow to rest, slice and serve pouring some of the gravy over it to keep it moist!!
  • 9
    Afterwards, I placed the carcuss and all the remaining juices from the crockpot in a large pot boiled it to make a broth, although it is not your typical chicken broth it was very tasty the next day with some egg noodles, chicken and carrots
