Slow Cooker Chicken In a Bag, the most tender chicken you will ever make

by 👩‍🍳 Cooking With a Southern Vibe in Music City USA 👩‍🍳, November 18, 2021

So easy, so good and it literally falls off the bone, it's that tender.   And it's so simple.  All you need is a slow cooker, a Reynolds Chicken Size Cooking Bag and a chicken.  I posted this recipe years ago but it's definitely worth repeating.

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) squeeze out the air, twist it shut with a twisty, and put it in the slow cooker, no liquid, nothing, don't worry it won't burn.  Cook it on low for 8-10  hours, that's the key, low and slow but if you're in a pinch you can cook it on high 6 hours and the chicken literally falls off the bone.

Lift the bag out of the slow cooker with an oven mitt, snip the end and drain the chicken stock in a large bowl to use later.

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

Note:  I don't pierce the bag before I cook it because I want the chicken to steam.  When the chicken is ready to take out of the slow cooker the bag will be puffy with air, so I pierce the bag close to the twistie, let the steam escape, then take it out with my mitts and snip a corner of the bottom of the bag over a bowl to drain the liquid.


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.
