Crockpot Whole Chicken Recipe

This Friday food blog is a recipe from a dear friend of mine. She is the mom/stepmom of seven… She’s a work from home mom and a mompeneur.  Brandy and her husband Mike,  just wrote a healthy living cookbook. So I reached out to her to be a guest blogger for our Friday’s food blog!

I’m always interested in sharing recipes that are healthy and easy. Being a mom of four… one being a special needs child… I didn’t have a lot of time to cook, but I wanted them to eat healthy. I think this recipe definitely fits that description.

Hope you enjoy! As always thanks for reading our blog, and we look forward to your comments. Be sure to keep checking back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for new blogs! Every Friday is our Friday food blog,with awesome recipes! As always, make sure you check for all food allergies, as well as make sure you fully cook!

About Brandy:

Being a mother is my greatest accomplishment! When I met Mike I had 2 kids and he had 4. We just had our first together and now have a blended family of 7 kids!! I love that I get to work from home with her and the other kids and never miss a moment! I am passionate about a natural, holistic lifestyle and clean eating. I love helping others on their journey to a natural, healthy lifestyle and helping other mamas learn how to work from home like I do!  Follow my food journey: http://www.mbpowercouple.com/healthy-hustlers/

Crockpot Whole Chicken “Our 5 year old loves it so much he made his Mom make it at her house!”

I love making a whole chicken in my crockpot! Not only does it make an easy dinner but I save the homemade chicken stock for future recipes and I make bone broth out of the carcass (see bone broth recipe)

 

1 Whole Chicken (we like to buy ours from a local farm but if that’s not an option make sure you get one that is grass-fed, hormone and antibiotic free at the very least, see shopping list)

2-6 Cloves Garlic

Handful Fresh Rosemary

Handful Fresh Sage

Handful Fresh Thyme

Sea Salt, Black Pepper and Turmeric to taste

 

  1. Stuff chicken with garlic, rosemary, sage and thyme
  2. Put in crockpot on low for 6-8 hours
  3. Season top of chicken with turmeric, sea salt and black pepper
  4. Chicken will create its own natural broth so no need to add water
  5. Baste with broth while it cooks
  6. Before serving remove broth and put in mason jar for later use (I let cool on the counter before freezing it.
