Crockpot Chicken in a Bag, Moist, Fall Apart Tender, BEST CHICKEN, EVER!!!!

in , , , by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, June 29, 2013



This is so tender it falls off the bone.  I've been making this recipe for years, and all of a sudden it's popping up everywhere online.  It's so simple, and you can season it the way you want to make it your own recipe.  Back in the day we used to call it "sticky chicken" because its so tender.

You just take a whole chicken, season it, put it in a Reynolds Cooking Bag, (the kind you put a turkey in at thanksgiving, but a smaller size for a chicken, or just use the big turkey bag if you can't find a small one) twist it shut with a twisty and put it in the crockpot, no liquid, nothing, don't worry it won't burn.  Cook it on low for 8-10  hours, or high 6 hours and the chicken literally falls off the bone.

I lift the bag out of the crock, snip the end and drain the chicken stock to use later.

This is a win-win recipe, you will love it!  Pinky swear you will.


Season it with fresh herbs, stuff it with lemons, apple, oranges, any kind of fruit you want.  Sprinkle ranch dressing on it, or taco seasoning, the possibilities are endless.  I like it with just salt and pepper myself.

You will never make more tender chicken than this.

Enjoy!!! ~ Jan
