Seems everyone is short on time these days. The crockpot is an ironic appliance in that it saves a person time but is the slowest form of cooking. Nonetheless, the resulting meals are flavoursome and hearty. Many working wives and moms swear by it's convenience.
I really find that buying a whole chicken is really great value for money. Stores often have them on sale and I keep a back-up of them in the freezer (be sure to keep track of sell-by dates).
This is also a great method of cooking a whole chicken if you need to take the cooked meat off the bone for some another chicken dish. Keep the liquid/gravy that is formed and put the bones of the chicken back in the pot of liquid. Add about another 4 cups of water and a whole onion (peeled) and a whole carrot. Leave on low heat over night and you will have a lovely chicken broth or stock in the morning. Just strain the bones, onion and carrot out.
This easy Crock Pot Roast Recipe for chicken is simple and quick to prepare. It doesn't have the crispy skin of an oven roasted chicken but then you can always remove the chicken from the crockpot when it's cooked and put it under the oven grill for 15 minutes or until the skin is crispy. Just be careful not to dry the chicken meat out.
