Garlic Herb Crock Pot Chicken

 An easy to make garlic herb marinated whole chicken in a crock pot, using only 3 ingredients!

So I’m not a big crock pot person. And I really don’t make a whole chicken very often. But for whatever reason, I had my heart set on making a whole chicken in the crock pot. Which is quite funny, because I have actually never made a chicken in the crock pot before.

Do you ever get those urges?  Yeah, I get them all the time. Some are flops, which you probably won’t see on here, and other are all stars. Like my Mustard Balsamic Baked Chicken with Roasted Vegetables!

Well, like I said earlier, I have never made chicken in a crock pot before. And to be honest, this was only the second time I have made a whole chicken. Apparently I was in too much of a rush to notice that when I had put the chicken in the crock pot, I had put it in and cooked it for 6 hours UPSIDE DOWN!

As I was taking pictures for the post, I kept thinking. Something doesn’t look right. I feel like it should look like a turkey. Pretty, perfectly browned, able to see the legs, and more rounded on top. But, I just kept taking pictures. Moving around the table with different angels trying to figure out why the chicken didn’t look right.

Then I moved it to my cutting board and started to take it apart. And that is when I realized. OH MY GOSH! The breasts are on the bottom… that is why it looked so strange! Bahaha!! Major blonde moment and quite embarrassing!

So I thought I would keep the pictures I had and see if you can notice, but also let you know that everyone makes mistakes. Just brush it off and laugh at yourself! :) So without further adieu, Garlic Herb Crock Pot Chicken. Just make sure you put it in the crock, breast-side up! :)

To get started, clean and pat dry one 5-6 lb. whole chicken. {remove the neck and innards from inside the chicken}

Right side up or upside down this chicken looks delish! You’re funny! I would have done the same thing and I’m a brunette!

I’m so glad that other people make silly mistakes taking pictures too. I made a dragon puppet a couple of weeks ago and didn’t realize until I’d taken all of my pictures that I’d reversed the black and white in the eyes, oops! It definitely made my pictures look a little odd.

Oh girl! YES!!! :) The dragon puppet mistake is too funny, gotta love how we don’t catch it till all the pictures are done. :) Figures!
