    I have a heavy breed rooster that I'd like to try in the crock pot. What's your favorite recipe?

    I like to put the whole chicken in the crock pot, then pour a bottle of Italian dressing over the top. Add no other liquid. Let cook until tender.
    My family loves this with mashed potatoes.[​IMG]

    2 TBSP lemon juice
    1/2 tsp onion powder
    1/2 clove garlic

    Add whatever veggies you want to go with it. I use celery and carrots.

    These all sound very good. I may have to try several of them. Thanks for the ideas.

    I don't see why not. I like to marinate chicken pieces in Italian dressing, then kabob them with onions and peppers on the grill. It's really good.
