Hubby and I have been cooking whole chicken in the crock pot for a long time. We used to spice it all up, adding lots of liquid and vegetables to get a soup as well as the chicken. I love carrots. Then I started to get coughs, colds, flus, allergies, stuff that never ends, and I couldn't eat anything with any flavoring at all for awhile. So he started making this even simpler: just chicken and water. Nothing else. Cook about 6 hours and chicken is done with lots of soothing chicken soup. The chicken is very tender, but of course, my favorite part is the chicken soup to make me feel better. Hubby now makes this with frozen chicken, from freezer (just make sure there's no gizzard bag), add water, turn on, leave for next 6+ hours. If I'm feeling good, I'll add lots of sprigs of fresh rosemary or maybe some ginger and the whole house smells great and no need to think about dinner for the next few days. In other words, you can't go wrong with a whole chicken in the crock pot.
