    I love my slow cooker, but my past attempts at whole chickens have resulted in bland, slimy, boiled meat. I want to try this recipe, but am nervous.

    I cook everything in it, pasta sauces, stroganoff, sesame chicken, indian food, soups and stews… I can’t live without mine! pintrest and the packaged spice aisles are great for inspirations!

    I have the exact same slow cooker, but have only ever done stew-like stuff in it (cholent, chili, stew, etc.). Does the skin get weird and soggy if you have to leave it on for 9 hours while at work? The timer/sensor should just switch it over to warm, right? Would this work with a skinless chicken? I’m not a huge fan of chicken skin anyway and might try just adding more olive oil or Earth Balance (dairy free).

    Thanks for posting the video, it was super helpful!

      Hi! Please see my note just below the recipe title, “If you prefer crispy chicken skin, place the whole chicken in a baking dish and broil for 5 minutes, or until the skin is crisp.” I’m not sure what kind of slow cooker you have but mine can be programmed to switch over to warm after a certain amount of time or when the meat hits a certain temperature. If you know it’s going to be on “warm” for an extended period of time you may want to reduce the cooking time to avoid carry-over cooking. Yes this would work with skinless chicken, I would definitely add more fat to compensate if using skinless.
