Baked chicken in a slow cooker for busy people! Put the chicken on in the morning, and have golden brown baked chicken for dinner.

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!

An easy slow cooker chicken recipe that cooks on its own and tastes great - the meat just falls off the bone!

This whole chicken is cooked in a slow cooker in the morning to enable the juices to stay in the meat, rather than escape in a conventional oven. I used a 1.5kg chicken to feed 2 adults and 4 children, but you can change the sizes appropriately. The slow cooking process enables the chicken meat to practically fall off the bone when ready and smells delicious. You can also use the juices to make your own gravy!

This incredibly moist chicken requires very little prep time. A whole chicken is stuffed with onion and garlic, sprinkled with paprika and slow cooked. The leftovers are fantastic in sandwiches.

I couldn't find a slow cooker recipe for chicken that was quite right, so I made one up and it has been a hit in this house! Browning the chicken first avoids the unappealing pale chicken that's common when you cook it in a slow cooker.

We are living in a dreadful recession! I've come up with three meals using a 2kg chicken and my trusty slow cooker, which uses less electricity than my oven! See what you think.
