Put a whole chicken (this can be frozen, but reduce the water to 2 cups and it takes about 10 - 12 hours), 4 cups water, 2 cups uncooked rice, 2 16 oz cans of diced tomatoes, 2oz cooked bacon, 1 small diced onion (grated also works or just 2 tblsp onion powder), 6oz sliced mushrooms, 1 16oz can creamed corn, and seasonings (we use 1 tblsp each basil, pepper, paprika, and parsley) in the crock pot and cook it (our crock pot has only two settings, low & high, we use high) for at least 6 hours, longer = more flavor! :) If you want to use chicken peices, use 4 to 6 lbs chicken peices. You don't have to change the cooking time, but it will be ready to eat sooner if you wish. It is a rather mild dish as one of my girls was a picky eater then!

I used to put everything in the crock pot and start it before I left for work and when I got home 10 hours later, it would be ready (sometimes, my husband would decide to have it for lunch instead, though - which meant it cooked about 7 hours instead of 10).

The whole chicken is a great idea. Another easy one is again skinless pieces with 1 can pineapple pieces and 1-2 cups mesquite bbq sauce.

if you are looking for easy dump about 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crock pot with a jar of salsa (we use the mild version). Let it cook all day on simmer. When you get home shred it with a fork, heat up some beans and rice and do homemade taco night. Easy.....

Tips for Chicken in the Crockpot

* White meat is going to cook much more quickly than dark. So when a recipe calls for chicken breasts, the total cooking time shouldn't be more than six to seven hours.
* Chicken drumsticks and thighs can cook for up to ten hours without losing juiciness or flavor.
* The internal temperature of the chicken pieces much reach 170 degrees F. An instant read thermometer will help you make sure that the chicken is thoroughly cooked.
* Read through crockpot information and tips. Take a few minutes to ensure you remember all the ins and outs of slow cookers.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken


* 1 (2 to 3 pound) whole chicken
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 teaspoon paprika


1. Wad three pieces of aluminum foil into 3 to 4 inch balls, and place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. Rinse the chicken, inside and out, under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and paprika, and place in the slow cooker on top of the crumbled aluminum foil.
3. Set the slow cooker to High for 1 hour, then turn down to Low for about 8 to 10 hours, or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear.

Bon Apetit!
