Slow Cooker Best Chicken
Delicious---with modifications! Only smeared about 2 tablespoons of butter mixed with garlic over the top skin of roaster....and sprinkled a packet of dry Lipton Onion soup mix over all before closing the lid! My family loved it! Easy prep, just put the small red potatoes whole in bottom of crock pot! Added small baby carrots instead of corn...
- 6-8 lb roaster
- 8 red potatoes
- 4 celery sticks
- 1 Vidalia Onion
- 2 heads garlic(yes heads)
- 1 stick softened butter
- 4-8 pcs. frozen corn
Cut potatoes and onion into medium chunks.
Cut celery in 1/4's
Place all in bottom of crockpot.
Peel 1 head of garlic. Put 3 or 4 cloves to the side.
Break the rest and put in the bottom of the crockpot.
Press saved cloves into the butter and mix together.
Put butter mixture under skin and on top of legs and wings.
Take the other head and put in cavity.
Put chicken on top of vegetables.
Turn crockpot on high and cook for about 5 hrs.
Very carefully take chicken out, it is falling apart, bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 15-20 min to brown the skin.
At the same time you take the chicken out put the defrosted corn in with the vegetables.
Make gravy out of the drippings, It is wonderful.
Don't forget about the head of garlic in the cavity.
Mix them with a little softened butter for garlic bread. If you don't like garlic you can cut the qty down.
