Easy is no joke with this chicken! Season, set, and let cook for fall-apart delicious chicken.



Remove giblets and pat chicken dry with paper towel. Rub chicken thoroughly with seasoning of choice, sprinkling some inside the cavity as well. Set chicken in a slow cooker and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 to 170 degrees. Carefully remove the chicken to a platter (it will be so tender that it should be falling apart off the bone), cover with foil and allow it to rest 5 to 10 min. before carving and serving. While chicken is resting, pour the juices from the slow cooker into a small saucepan and simmer for 5 to 10 min. to reduce and serve on the side as a sauce.

Serving Suggestions

This was designed as a salt-free recipe, but salt can be rubbed on the chicken with the seasoning and/or added to the finishing sauce. You could also brine the whole chicken, if desired, using Savory's Brining Mix. Find Brining Mix Instructions here.

Serve over rice or noodles or use in enchiladas, soup, or on salads. Add your favorite root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, or onions to the crockpot with the chicken at the beginning to add flavor and a built-in side dish!

This chicken was AMAZING. I used the Bohemian Forest European Style Seasoning. This will definitely be a "go-to" crock pot recipe. I made it because my father has heart failure and has to watch his salt intake. No one believed that there wasn't any salt in the food. I added a few red onion pieces into the bird's cavity for a little more flavor. It was really good and super easy!!!
