Thanks, Kareena!

I got a crock pot for my birthday last year and I'm still learning how to use it. I will definitely try this one on Maxi as it has all his favorite ingredients.

Do you serve it with rice?

If you like the kind of whole chicken that you can get at gorcery store delis, you might like this crock pot recipe.

Spray inside of crockpot with non-stick spray. Make (4) 2 inch balls of aluminum foil and lay in the bottom of crockpot.

Put seasoning (Iuse a barbeque rub) on whole chicken and lay breast side down on top of foil.
Don't add any water or liquid.

Let cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. You can tell when it is done. The meat kinda falls from the bone.

I cook it like this a lot because the crockpot is a lot easier to clean than that rotissore thing.

Hi Charoopy ~

The aluminum foil doesn't damage the crockpot? You do this all the time? It sounds like something we would love around here and you are right, those rotisseries make SUCH a mess!

I cook this chicken about once a week. It doesn't seem to hurt my crock pot. You can also wrap potatoes in foil and bake them in your crock pot. They don't taste exactly like oven baked but they are better than nuked ones.

charoopy...
I made the chicken and aluminum foil balls for supper tonight. [shocked]
Quite tasty! [grin]
My chicken was a little big...and I have one of those round crock pots...so I had to man-handle that sucker to stuff it into the cooker. I think I broke it's back. [Roll Eyes]

dash nutmeg
dash salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons melted butter

Lightly butter the slow cooker then add bread cubes. In a small bowl, whisk together the scalded milk, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour milk mixture over the bread cubes then add raisins, if desired. Gently, using a large spoon or spatula, press bread cubes down into mixture so all bread pieces will soak up milk mixture.

Christina's Mock Barbeque Ribs: (Bare with me...I'll do my best to remember, I never follow recipes)...but I assure you....the meat will fall off the bones!!!

2 Racks of Baby Back Ribs
Dry Rub of your choice (I usually make my own...but cajun works well)
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tbsp worcestershire
1 tsp prepared mustard
a good dallop of maple syrup
1 tsp liguid smoke (essential!!..yummy!)
2 tsp soy sauce
2 cloves of garlic (grated or pressed)
fresh ground pepper
chili flakes (if desired...I add quite a bit)

Remove thin membrane off back of ribs...real easy! Simply use a knife to start it and using a paper towel, grab a hold of it and it tears right off. This assures tender ribs.
Rub down ribs (top and bottom) with your choice of barbeque seasoning.
Broil in oven for a about 3 minutes each side.
Layer in Crockpot putting a dallop of sauce between layers (not too much...u don't want them too liquidy) No need to add water...plenty of juices come out of the ribs.
Cook on low for 8 hrs. I alternate the ribs half way through and rub a little more sauce on.
Remove from crockpot, cover with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes. (This locks all the juices inside). In the summer I put them on the grill for a couple minutes each side just to char them up a bit but this step isn't needed. Believe me.......these ribs are the BEST!!!
