Slow Cooker Whole Chicken

When you make chicken stock from this, what are the nutrients in that stock? Dietitian comment: On average, 1 cup homemade chicken stock contains 6 g protein, 2 g fat, 5 g carbohydrate, 200 mg potassium, 65 mg phosphorus and 70 mg sodium. The amounts can vary depending on the amount and types of vegetables added to the stock.

Do you not cover the chicken with water when you put it in slow cooker? Dietitian comment: No water needed. The moisture from the chicken will create a pool of juices.

Using a slow cooker is the best way to cook chicken. This is an excellent article. I cook my chicken and freeze it in portions. It makes for an easy quick dinner, or lunch. I enjoyed the recipes and information. Just love this site!
