I made this for the first time today, it was AWSOME! I did make some changes, I used a whole chicken and stuffed the cavity with one onion cut up in quarters and 3 cloves of crushed garlic. I also used poultry seasoning, garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, and paprika to season the chicken with. I used the foil balls, but put 2 cups of chicken broth on the bottom, and put the slow cooker on high for two hours and then turned it on low for 5 hours and it came out Great! It didn't fall off the bone because I didn't want to over cook it, but it was SO tender, I didn't even need a knife to cut it! My kids ate it all, I was hoping for leftovers for chicken salad, but there was none!


This recipe was simple and it made "fall off the bone" chicken. I used 5 chicken legs (skin removed) and cooked it on low for 9 hours. Instead of using the alluminum foil, I used potatoes (peeled and quartered) and carrots and onions under the chicken in the crock-pot. I added 1/2 c. chicken broth and lots of seasoned salt and pepper, too. The veggies were nice and soft and the flavor of this slow cooking was wonderful and EASY !!! Thanks 'Cotton' !!!


I used a 4.5 chicken. I rubbed butter all over and then sprinkled it generously with salt, pepper, garlic salt, seasoning salt, paprika and poultry seasoning. I put it on low and cooked it for about 11 hrs while I was at work. When we got home, it smelled wonderful! I used some of the juice from the bottom to drizzle over the chicken. It had a light golden color and looked very good. There was no point trying to pick it up because it fell apart soon as I tried. The meat was very tender and juicy. Only thing I would change is to remove all the skin from the chicken next time before seasoning. The skin slid right off when it fell apart and so, naturally, a lot of the flavoring was gone. The only other thing I may try to different if I leave the skin on is to try and buy those flavor injectors, to get some more of the flavoring down into the meat. Otherwise, outstanding!
