This one time, my Mom's friend gave her a slow-cooker recipe that involved only a chicken, a packet of Lipton soup mix, and a can of cranberry sauce. It sounded pretty alarming, but her friend, a totally trusted food source, swore it was great so she gave it a go. And it was effing marvelous. So with that in mind, here are nine recipes that use the whole dang bird because slow cookers are amazing, you guys.
Remove the skin and use balls of tin foil in the bottom of the pot to prevent the chicken from boiling in its own fat. Though, if we're being honest, that doesn't really seem like something you want to avoid. Get the recipe.
