I made this for the first time yesterday. Was nervous about cooking a whole chicken, but it was soooo easy and tasted amazing. Served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Had plenty left over for sandwiches the next day too. Winner winner chicken dinner

Ermagawd this is so tasty!! And easy as well! I added a good spoon of ginger. Probably would have added chilli as well but for whiners! Also cooked some spuds in the sauce and it was the bomb!

We tried this recipe as our second ever slow cooker meal and were very happy with how the chicken turned out … Great flavor .. We usually cook on our Webber Q bbq but this is an excellent other method to enjoy a chicken … will be doing this again ..

This is amazing ! The fam-bam loves it to . After the chicken is cooked I shred /pull it and put it back in the slow cook juices until I have served up all veggies , it just thickens up the sauce a bit more and gives chicken a lot more flavor . I serve in a bed of mash with side of veggies .

Definitely meant for the whole chicken ideally 🙂

It was good, something the kids liked but I used chicken breasts which I won’t be using next time and cooked it for to long so chicken was dry. Next time I will use a whole chicken

Super easy to make and super tasty. I have been known to eat the sauce with a spoon 🙂

This recipe will work well for pulled chicken as well. Cook as per recipe instructions and then debone and shread meat at the end of the cooking time.
