Can You Cook a Whole Chicken in a Slow Cooker?

There’s nothing like cooking a whole chicken in a crock pot.

It’s the easiest way to do it as there’s no tying of kitchen twine, no roasting pan, no watching the oven and the internal temperature.

You just set it and forget it.

It typically takes 3-4 hours to cook a chicken on high heat in the slow cooker, and 8 hours to cook on low heat.

 

 

Somehow I always end up with a little dish of leftover beans, maybe a little chicken, and always a little avocado. I have no clue how this happens. I always over-make, especially on #taco tuesday. I think it’s just because I love seeing all of those ingredients piled up but by the end of taco numero dos I can’t stuff anymore in my face.

 

Are Enchiladas Made with Corn Tortillas?

Corn tortillas are traditional for enchiladas, but flour tortillas also work.

I also hate to waste food so I’m always trying to use up leftovers, but because we don’t love to have the exact same thing two nights in a row I try to change it up. Our honey lime chicken enchiladas were served with Fiesta Rice  and avocado so suddenly I was stuck with randomness. Until Cade mentioned we had sampled (because who doesn’t love Costco samples?!) a Blendtec tortilla soup long ago and I knew our leftovers had been saved.

 

Can Left Overs be Used in Soup?

Don’t let your leftovers go to waste when they could be transformed into a tasty meal in minutes.

Most leftover meat and vegetables can be boiled down to make a delicious and nutritious stock, while long-forgotten tins and cans can form the base of a belly-filling broth.

It couldn’t be easier to turn the remains of last night’s roast chicken into something beautiful.

A miscellaneous array of random vegetables is all you need to produce a really quick and healthy soup.

 

 

Does Hot Soup Help Fight Cold and Flu?

In fact, chicken soup is good for soothing both cold and flu symptoms.

The hot soup helps break up the congestion associated with both colds and the flu.

The salt in the soup and its warmth can soothe a sore throat.

A scientific study found that chicken soup has anti-inflammatory properties.

This isn’t their exact recipe but we do things similar and I think you’ll love it. Best of all, make it your own! You can leave out the beans, change the type of beans, add jalapenos, whatever you like!

  1. i was wondering if you cut up the veggies before throwing them into the oven to roast?? Cant wait to try!!

  2. Have you tried this in the crock pot? It looks delicious but with my crazt schedule the crock pot is so much more convenient. Thanks in advance!

  3. I have been married/cooking for 39 years, and appreciate the efforts the bloggers put into all they do before a recipe is posted. New ideas and meals are always welcome as I am sick to death after these 39 years of the meal planning, shopping and the clean up part of cooking. So trying new recipes is the only “new” thing I get to do and not be sick of the whole process. The soup is a welcome change as our weather is also changing!

    • Thanks so much Shelley. You sound exactly like my mom. After raising and cooking for 5 kids and endless meals she’s so tired of thinking up something to make. I am sure we will be the same way. Thanks for commenting!

  4. I was horrified to come across this demeaning post by Bethel. She should realize that by posting such a degrading post she humiliated herself in the process. Not every blog is suitable for everyone. If she feels she has “outgrown” Oh, Sweet Basil, there are thousands of others out there for the viewing. Don’t undermine the energy it takes to research, test, and post interesting recipes. Bethel, what are your recent accomplishments? The mirror could be your best friend OR your worst enemy! Your comment in response to Bethel’s verbal lashing was above reproach. Keep up the good work Cade and Carrian.

  5. Holy cow. This looks AH mazing. So cheesy and hearty and full of flavor. I mean, I’m drooling just looking at the photos! Need this in my life ASAP!

  6. Bethany, I think this recipe looks just delicious and I’m looking forward to making it! I follow your blog and always enjoy when you have new content. I am sorry that Bethel left such an unkind comment. You handled it with class, as we all knew you would and I hope that you don’t let someone else’s rudeness effect you. God bless you and your new cookbook that I know LOTS of people will read. Keep up the good work. 🙂

  7. I don’t even know why you still blog. You have blogged for so long and your blog is dead and doesn’t even get page views. Then it’s just creepy to bring your little balding husband into it. Then you spend all of your money into making a cookbook that nobody is going to buy and has crappy photography. SMH

    • Hi, only blogs self publishing pay for a cookbook, that is not the case with us. 😉 We have a great publisher, Deseret Book and Shadow Mountain. Have you heard of them?
      We certainly agree that our photography is a work in progress. Is that your job? We are always open to tips.
      Cade is a devoted, kind, loving, and hard working man whom we all love and adore.
      May you choose to be a little more kind. Bullying is not welcome here, so while we will let this sit in hopes you see our reply please know that any future bullying will be removed and I hope that this is not something that you have experienced in your life and are choosing to hurt because you were hurt. It wasn’t right if it happened to you, and it’s never right to do to someone else.
      Hope your day goes better.

  8. Just for clarification, what is Cento Tomatoes?

    • Hi Bethany, Cento is a brand and I like the flavor of their tomatoes. They don’t taste “canned” like other tomatoes. You can use anything though. I used store brand last week and it was great.
