(If you don’t say this, you need to hop on the bandwagon!)  I recently realized that not only do I have an obvious list of reasons why I love my crock-pot, but I can break it down into subcategories of seasonal reasons for why I love my crockpot.

But I digress.

Shred or chop the chicken for your favorite casserole recipe. Use the drippings to make gravy.  Serve your roast chicken sliced with cheddar mashed potatoes (our favorite). Save the leftover bones and make a batch of broth. The options here are basically endless. This crockpot roasted chicken recipe is one you’ll come back to time after time.

Here are a few tips for the best crockpot roasted chicken:

  • Tie the legs with kitchen twine. Chicken roasted in the crockpot will be so incredibly tender when it is done. Sometimes the wings and legs will just fall off as you take it out of the crockpot. I’ve found that tying the legs together with kitchen twine will help hold your chicken together better.
  • Make aluminum foil balls to hold your chicken above the juices that will collect in the bottom of the crock pot. I’ve found that about 5-6, 1.5 inch foil balls is a good amount for my 7 quart crockpot. For a smaller crockpot you can probably get away with less. 
  • If you like a crispy skin on your chicken, after roasting in the crockpot place your chicken on an oven proof tray and place under the broiler for a few minutes to crispen the skin up.

Please leave a review or a photo! I'd love to hear your feedback!

Now on a completely unrelated note. When I was shopping for this post, I bought 3 chickens and every single one was missing half the wing on one side! Weird little pirate looking chickens! I wonder what happened…sticking with the pirate theory. 

 

Creamy and fluffy mashed potatoes are taken to the next level of delicious with the addition of sharp cheddar cheese for a side dish everyone will love. Recipe on www.accidentalhappybaker.com @AHBamy

Instead of putting the foil in the bottom of the pot, could you put carrots, onions and celery?

I don't have a crockpot, so I'm not in that category of crockpot lovers, but I would love to purchase one. It's so versatile. This is an amazing recipe. I love the idea of dinner cooking in the kitchen, and me, relaxing. :) I have to buy one asap :)

Silvia, as a foodie you really should! They aren't even very expensive. I have an enormous crockpot (because I have a pretty big family) it's no frills but it was less than $30. IMO, that just can't be beat.
