I have seen Rotisserie chicken done in the slow cooker. I've also seen potatoes baked in one. Here's a recipe where you cook the whole meal together, carrots too.
Wrap small to medium sized potatoes individually in foil, and carrots, sprinkled with a bit of salt and pepper, wrapped together in a packet. Place them in the bottom of your slow cooker.
Now mix together:
1-2 tbsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp celery seed
Add juice of 1 lemon (3 tbsps) to make a paste.
Put the lemon in the cavity of the chicken and smear the whole chicken with the paste. Messy but worth it. Lay the chicken on top of the potatoes and carrot packet.
I used a 3 1/2 lb chicken.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours. This was it after 7 1/2 hours.
Gotta go have supper now!
Everyone really liked it. I think I would try just 7 hours next time. The chicken comes right off the bone.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
