    Help cooking a chicken!!!!

    Ok, so yes, I have cooked chickens numerous times - but never in a slow cooker! Iv been googling on what to do and I'm finding all different information! So can someone help please!

    I have a whole chicken, do I add water or not, how long do I put it on for (my slow cooker has low/med/high settings) is it ok to put in before I go bed and leave it overnight? The thought of the chicken 'falling off the bone' sounds a bit icky, is this what happens? Is there any way of getting it out whole? Is there a lot of fat juice?

    I do use my slow cooker all the time, but never for a whole chicken, I just fancied a change from cooking in the oven! Thanks

    Thankyou, i was worried incase leaving the slow cooker on dry as such with not putting fluids in would break it or something. I will give it a go, and make balls of foil so the fat runs off. Another question - I'm sounding so dumb aren't i - which side do I cook it? Google says breast side down... Is that upside down from how they are in the packaging? Or doesn't it really matter?

    Well I did it, I cooked my chicken!!! It looks bloody lovely too! Turned the cooker off around 9am. The skin is nice and brown, and I carefully lifted it out with two frying spatula thingies! It didn't fall apart, but I'm yet to cut into it! I did like you said and rolled up a few balls of foil, and all the fat juice was in the bottom and nothing on the chicken! Looking forward to eating it later, will update with what I think! Thanks for all your help, I'm now a master chicken cookerer!!

    Thanks for that posting.. I never knew that a slow cooker could be used without any liquid being added.. Great info!
