Trying something new

At Kathryn's house the other day she had cooked a whole chicken in her slow cooker ... and it was so tender and Delicious ... I vowed to cook one the same way.
Low and behold  the supermarket had a special on Country style chickens today, this one was extra special as it was yesterdays and they had reduced it another 25% ...always an eye for a bargain me ... snapped it up and here it is in the slow cooker with in the hour of purchase.  A chicken this large will most likely see me through the weekend and some.

It came in a "cook in bag"   now I was not sure you could use this in a slow cooker so "Googled it " some said  Yes, some said NO,  the bag manufacturers said  NO only use a slow cooker liner... I didn't know there was such a thing just goes to show you learn something new every day.

I've never tried chicken in a crock pot. Thanks for a great idea! Especially this time of year when I don't want the oven on.

remember the chicken must not have stuffing, otherwise the middle may not heat properly. Cook on low for 6-8 hours if fresh and cook on high for 6-8 hours if frozen
