Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken thawed
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • garlic powder to taste
  • garlic salt to taste
  • parsley sprinkling

Instructions

Dutch Oven

  • Begin by drizzling olive oil in the bottom of your pan. Remove your chicken from it's wrapping, take the bag of guts out of the inside, rinse the chicken off under cold water. Inspect it to make sure all of the feathers have been removed.
  • Place in the dutch oven and bake at 375F for about two hours. After two hours, check the internal temperature to see how much longer it may need. You may need to add an additional hour to the baking time. The internal temperature of your chicken needs to reach 160F before eating.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest before eating. Serve and enjoy!

Crockpot

  • Begin by drizzling olive oil in the bottom of your crockpot. Remove your chicken from it's wrapping, take the bag of guts out of the inside, rinse the chicken off under cold water. Inspect it to make sure all of the feathers have been removed.
  • Place in your crockpot, make sure your temperature is on high. Cook for three hours and then check on it.
  • Because crockpots take longer to cook, it may need to cook more like four to five hours on high in your crockpot. If you are going to leave it cooking all day, while you are at work, it is a good idea to place one cup of water in the crockpot with it as well.
  • Be sure that your internal temperature has reached 160F before eating.

Cooking Bag

  • Begin by drizzling olive oil in the bottom of your crockpot. Remove your chicken from it's wrapping, take the bag of guts out of the inside, rinse the chicken off under cold water. Inspect it to make sure all of the feathers have been removed.
  • Sprinkle flour on the inside of your bag. Open the bag wide and place your chicken inside. Twist and seal it shut. Place the bag on a baking pan and place in your oven at 375 for two to three hours. Be sure that your internal temperature has reached 160F before eating. Remove from the oven and let rest before eating. Serve and enjoy!
