If like chicken and you've never cooked a whole chicken in a crock pot, DO IT, do it soon.
Remove the giblets, wash the chicken and season as desired. (I used Johnny’s Seasoning Salt) Place in the pot breast up with no liquid. Cook on low for 6 hours. It even browns. (Poultry is done at 165 degrees) It will be plenty done.Remove the meat and bones
Degrease the broth (I use a tray of ice cubes, the grease solidifies against the cubes which can be lifted out)This time I left all the chicken broth in the pot and made a delicious soup with the help of ideas from my husband.
Crock pot Ham and Chicken Soup
Add to the chicken broth
1 14.5 oz. can of beef broth
1 14.5 oz. can of Great Northern Beans with liquid1 meaty ham hock
Turn Crock pot on high and let this simmer until the ham hock starts to break down.Add some chicken meat (I added a large handful.)
Add a second can of Great Northern beans, drained.Add salt and pepper as desired (I added none)
Let it simmer a bit and enjoy
