    When I make this I use a 6 lb chicken. Instead of the balls of foil, I tried putting a layer of small yellow potatoes and carrots on the bottom and placed my chicken on top. Cook on low for 8 hours. It worked great. Main dish and side dish prepared together. I also get about 3 cups of chicken broth too. The first time I tried this, I put the carrots on top, but they were a bit crunchy. Putting them with the potatoes they come out perfect.

    I used split chicken breasts seasoned with Montreal Chicken seasoning and cooked them on low for 6 hrs. It was tasty!

    Ok…..I tried this on Tuesday and It looked beautiful, but was very dry. I followed the directions exactly (on low for 8hrs) and it was way to long….It was a 3-4lb fresh whole chicken and it was just in WAY to long… I should have shut it off at 5-6 hrs. I’ll change the time next time.

    Lina you can absolutely use a ceramic crockpot!

    I have a ceramic crock pot, will this recipe still work? I have to admit I am pretty skeptical about a whole roasted chicken in the crock pot. I am thinking I may give it a try, I do have a small fryer I try it out with. I’ll let you know the outcome

    To Joy – the reason for the foil is so the chicken is not sitting directly in the liquid (fat cooked from the chicken).

    Hi, I’m making this now and wondered what is the reason for the foil in the bottom of the Crock Pot? I’m interested in what the reason is. Can’t wait to try the chicken later today.

    This recipe was great! It made perfect amount of juice to make gravy. It was heavenly coming into my house after work. I actually stuffed the cavity with carrots and celery and we ate that those also. This will be one of my go-to recipe. Thanks!

    Ya know, I just KNEW ya’ll would have a recipe for roasted chicken!!! I was at the grocery store, picked up a roaster because it was $3 off, which put it around $5 and change. Thought to myself, I’ll bet the Crockin’ Girls will have a crock pot recipe for this, ‘cuz I surely do not want to roast it in the oven in this heat … You came through, of course!! I’m going to throw it in today. Thank you so much
