How to Cook Whole Chicken in a Crock-Pot
How to cook a whole chicken in an instant pot? This is actually one of the best ways to cook a whole chicken. Just toss it into the crockpot and off you go. That’s not necessarily saying that this is the fastest way, though. It may be a little faster than going to a restaurant for a whole chicken, but you don’t have to spend all day standing in line.
There are so many wonderful ways to cook a whole chicken that I’m sure you can find your favorite method. In fact, there are so many different whole chicken recipes out there that you may have trouble deciding on which one to try first. I do recommend trying several different ones. I’ve found that you should keep an eye on the health of your chicken while cooking it. Some recipes call for partially cooking the chicken in a hot oil bath, which can cause your chicken to become undercooked. I prefer to cook the chicken in a pan with only enough liquid to cover it until it’s the proper internal temperature.
To make crockpot recipes for whole chicken recipes you will need a pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
And then a cup of water along with two cups of dry sherry or white wine. Also a medium-sized pot (or large pan) and a bouillon cube, a wire rack and a roasting pan or a baking sheet. You can use any kind of pan as long as it’s wide enough. It needs to be deep enough to let the chicken get cooked in but not deep enough to let the vegetables get cooked in as well. If you want you can also use a deep pot or even a cast-iron crockpot.
Now that we have all of our tools ready, we can start on how to cook a whole chicken recipe. Start by putting the chicken in the crockpot with the liquid on top. Cover the lid of the crockpot tightly after this. Turn the crockpot on to low. Let the chicken cook in the crockpot on low for about eight to ten hours depending on the size of the chicken.
Now while your slow cooker chicken recipe is cooking, you will want to remove the skin on the breast meat. Most people will just throw the skin away. However, if you want to make the meat healthier, you will want to remove the skin. Using a slotted spoon, pull the skin out of the meat as best you can.
Another method of cooking a whole chicken is to use a pressure cooker. In this method, all you have to do is add the chicken in the pot with the liquid to the pressure cooker.
Cover the lid and set the Instant Pot crockpot for an hour or so. Then, turn on the valve to high and let the chicken cook in the cooker for about ten minutes. This is a faster method than the crockpot method, but not by much.
How to cook a whole chicken in a crockpot can be done in several different ways. You can use a traditional set of instructions like the ones found in slow cooker cookbooks. These instructions state that you should start cooking about two hours before you are ready to serve it. This gives the chicken enough time to come to room temperature. If you want it to be faster, you can brown the meat and finish cooking it in the crockpot. Just continue to cook it on high for about ten minutes and then turn it off.
