3.5 hours til dinner... Whole chicken (thawed) crock pot? Oven?

To late to cook it in a slow cooker? Never done that before. I was about to put it in the oven when it occurred to me that would be HOT and I was pretty sure you can roast it in the crock pot... If I do have time... How do you do it in a crock pot?

  • Minimum of 4 hours in the crock is needed for safety. I would personally go with the oven.

  • You can do it, if you split the chicken down the back bone, and then put it in the crock pot,, but hurry! I would make noodles and or rice along with it, the chicken will be tender, but it isn't going to have that golden brown effect!

  • Does dinner HAVE to be in 3.5 hours? I usually cook mine in the crockpot in 4-4.5 hours. Crumple up some foil balls for the chicken to sit on, season it as you like (I normally use Lawry's Seasoning salt), put the chicken on top of the foil, cover, and cook on high. Comes out super tender in the crockpot.

  • If you use the crock just keep an eye on the chicken's temp.
