Great Crockpot Recipes-Chicken In A Pot

Updated on April 11, 2016
5 stars from 1 rating of Chicken in a Pot

This is another easy crockpot recipe. Basically with a whole chicken and a few ingredients, you will have a wonderful meal that will taste like you worked on it for hours. There are options to cook it on high for a shorter cook time, but remember to add a cup of water for the moisture that will boil off.
