SLOW COOKER WHOLE CHICKEN WITH STUFFING
See how I cook a whole chicken, veggies AND stuffing in one pot!
2 carrots, diced
1 small yellow onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
5 lb. whole chicken
1/2 cup salted butter, melted
1 tsp. dried sage
1 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. paprika
6 oz. box stove top stuffing (I use savory herbs style)
SLOW COOKER SIZE:
6-quart or larger
Clean out the inside of the chicken by removing any extra parts or packaging and discard.
Add the carrots, onion and celery to the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the chicken.
Pour over the melted butter and sprinkle over the thyme, sage, paprika, salt and pepper.
Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
Remove chicken to a platter and cover with foil. Remove (but save!) the chicken drippings from the slow cooker, leaving the veggies. Add the stuffing mix to the veggies in the slow cooker. Measure out 1 1/2 cups of the liquid that you removed and add to the stuffing and veggies. Stir and add back the lid. I turn the slow cooker to high and let the stuffing absorb the liquid for about 10 minutes.
I added the chicken back to the slow cooker with the stuffing for a pretty presentation. If I was just serving this to my family, I would slice and serve the chicken on the platter and serve the stuffing from the slow cooker.
