[slowcooker] Re: Whole Chicken
- I also have good luck cooking my chicken in the crock pot. It turns out
better for me in the CP than cooking it in the oven. The chicken is soo
moist and tender and I love it when it falls off the bone. I like to cook
alot of chickens this way especially when I need leftovers. I use my
leftover chicken for other various quick prepare recipes.
I am one of those people who loves their crockpot! Full time working mothers
have a great appreciation for the crockpot and what it does to help our
families get dinner on the table fast! Thank you for all the posts and
recipes. Iam really enjoying reading all of them.

Re: Whole Chicken
I have a 7 qt oval Hamilton Beach cooker and found that a good, reusable
'rack' made from a foil muffin pan works very well for whole chickens or
anything else you may want to keep up out of the juices. I cut off two
muffin cups from one end of the pan and use the 4-cup piece upside down
in the cooker. Best part is it's washable and so lots cheaper than using
foil balls. I store the rack in the cooker when it's not in use.
