  1. Recipe Instructions * make sure it will fit in your crock pot. ** with a few leaves. In a slow cooker, put in half of the chicken broth. Place half of the carrots, celery and onions in the bottom. Place the chicken (back side down) in the slow cooker. Add remaining broth, vegetables, salt and pepper, basil and Italian seasonings (if used). Place lid on cooker and cook on LOW heat for 7-10 hours or HIGH heat for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours. Serves four. (Taken from Extension Homemakers of Sedgwick County, Lula Kirk) NOTES: This is an excellent recipe for people on the go! Just start it in the morning and by 5 or 6 pm you have dinner! You can even get a package of mixed frozen vegetables if you don't have time to chop fresh ones. We've found that buying a whole chicken is cheaper than to buy one pre-cut. The chicken almost falls off the bones it is so tender and it makes taking out the bones easy! We serve it in bowls over rice; like chicken soup. It makes a large amount and lasts at least 2-3 meals for us. I hope you enjoy.
