I used a whole roaster chicken and left it whole. The flavor of this chicken was wonderful, though the breast meat of the chicken was a little dry and chewy. I just cut it up and made chicken salad with it which was wonderful! The changes I made were, I rubbed the chicken with paprika, garlic powder and sprinkled a little black pepper on the top and bottom of the chicken. In the bottom of the crockpot I put half of an onion (cut in 2 pieces), some carrots, 2 celery stalks and some chicken broth. I just set the chicken directly on the vegetables, no foil. Cooked it on high for the first hour, breast side up, then turned the crockpot to low and flipped the chicken breast side down for a couple of hours to try and keep it a little more moist. Not sure if that added to the dryness of the breast or if it prevented it from being more dry, but I attempted it that way because I had read that suggestion in a couple of reviews. I would definitely make this again. The flavor of the chicken was great and the dark meat was very moist.
