    Hiya
    I stand my chicken on rolled up balls of foil, no added liquid as whilst its cooking it will make more than enough liquid to cover the pot. I put mine on first thing in the morning and leave it cook until we are ready for lunch depending on what time lunch is I either cook on high or low! I stuff it with a lemon cut in half and sprinkle with black pepper . . yummy!! Ive not put mine on any veggies so dont know how that would affect syns ~ I guess it would be up there with using meat juices as gravy and such :confused:

    Yup, just chicken on it's own (upside down so the juices run into the breast ;) ) That's all folks! You can add garlic & other herbs if you want.

    ooh never thought of doing that with the foil
    i cooked a chiciken in mine - I put in 2 carrots , leek,pepper and water and some sage. We took off all the skin of the breast and removed the wings- they are for flapping ,not eating LOL . then cooked it on high for about 3 hours , I must say that although it had been in water for all that time it was a bit dry , but all the same the flavour of the sage had gone right through it and it was nice ..mmm

    I cant get enough of my slow cooker! Twice ive done a whole chicken with carrots, onion, diced potatoes with the skin on & add 450ml of Knorr chicken stock. Its gorge!! This sunday just gone I done a whole chicken in chicken oxo with sage herbs on top of the chicken, the whole house smelt delish!! The chicken had a lovely taste too!

    I havent actually turned a chicken upside down yet though lol
