This recipe starts by marinating the chicken overnight to infuse it with awesome taste in every bite. Cooking it in a Crock-Pot results in chicken that literally falls off the bone. You’re going to love it!

Prepare the Softest Chicken Ever

  1. Whisk marinade ingredients together. Trim excess fat from the chicken.

  2. Smear marinade all over chicken, inside and outside. Place skin side down in a pan, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

  3. Drizzle olive oil on the bottom of a six to eight-quart Crock-Pot. Slice onion thickly into half-circles and place in pot. Carefully place chicken, skin side down, on onions.

  4. Scrub sweet potatoes and cut in half lengthwise. Place on and around the chicken.

  5. Pour marinade over all. Turn on high and cook for five hours, or until ready.

    This recipe looks wonderful. In Step 2, if the marinade is smeared all over the chicken to refrigerate overnight, what marinade do you pour over the chicken and veggies in the crockpot in Step 5? When you talk about setting the chicken “skin side down,” while it’s marinating in the fridge, and then cooking in the Crockpot, since it is a whole chicken and there is skin all over and both sides, what do you mean by skin side down? Do you mean breast side down instead? Thank you.

    I’m assuming that in step 2 you just smear a bit of the marinade over the chicken; then in step 5 you pour the rest of it over the chicken, potatoes, etc. Usually skin side down regarding chicken means upside down (the side where the bulk of the skin is).

    Hi! Yes, you would put it breast side dow. You would marinade the chicken and then use the leftover, used marinade over the chicken and cook it all together.

    Excellent recipe. Very flavorful and indeed very soft. I baked it covered at 400 F for 50 minutes instead of using the crockpot. Next time I’ll add carrots and maybe one other vegetable.

    What would this be without a crockpot?

    I would either cook in a big pot on the stove on medium-high for a few hours and then bring down to low or in the oven at 350 for a few hours. You just want to keep an eye on it and make sure it doesn't burn and that the chicken is fully cooked.

    You don't give a Temperature in your method? You say turn on high and cook for 5 hours or until desired preferences! Kindly give exact temp gauge? Sounds similar to my Recipe except addition of Paprika! Regards Felicity Isserow

    Hi, this is a crockpot chicken, so you would put it on the 'high' crockpot setting and let it cook like that.
