Cider-Roasted Chicken

"I'VE never shared this recipe before, even with members of my own family. I use it only for special occasions such as Christmas. I found the recipe in the first real good cookbook I owned, and my six children love it. I've also been inspired to enter cooking contests and have won several times. -Mary Dunphy, Stephenville, Newfoundland"

Made in crockpot, Chick was done in 4 hours(4 lbs) Crumbled cooked bacon on top. Very good! Apple cider makes it sooo good.

It was a little bland for my preference... yet my boyfriend & family absolutely loved it! Might try adding herbs & spices next time.

This is a good recipe. Make sure you put a lid on the chicken when you cook it for the two hours and also after you add the veggies. The bacon adds a nice twist to a great meal.

I ended up having to cook this like 7 hours I think because I put it on a higher rack instead of the bottom one. After I put it on the bottom it finished up rather quickly. It was very moist a...
