Busy day chicken

    9 hours 5 min

    Easiest recipe I've ever made! I received it when my eldest son was a baby -- today he is 17 and it is still a hit! Just a few minutes of preparation, and all day cooking. Dinner will be hot and ready whenever you have a chance to eat. Meat falls from the bone, and sauce can be used as a gravy for rice or chips. Enjoy!

    1. Put whole chicken, legs up, into slow cooker. Pour sauce over and inside the chicken. Cover.
    2. Cook for 8 to 10 hours on low setting. It is not a good idea to check it, as steam escapes and it takes quite awhile to reheat.

    I'm confused. Where is the recipe for the bbq sauce? I can't find it on this page, or linked. I hardly think "chuck a chicken in the slow cooker, pour some sauce of your choice over it, and cook for 9 hours" qualifies as a recipe ... ???  -  16 Nov 2009


    should'nt whole chicken be cooked on high as recommended?  -  16 Aug 2011


    made this for my kids last night but used drumsticks,1 sliced red onion,1/2 red and green pepper,1/2 jar of bbq sauce and 4tbs water,cooked on high for 4 hrs and the meat just fell of the bone,by adding the water it stops the sauce being to sharp for the kids ,well worth making.  -  18 Aug 2011
