Whole Chickens Are Great Value

Whole chickens are cheaper than purchasing a chicken already cut up.  I buy 4 to 6 whole chickens when they are on sale.   For my family, I often prepare two chickens to feed my family.  I know how to cut up a whole chicken, but I rather just cook it whole.  It is easier and delicious.   I use different seasonings blends to change the flavor of the chicken.  The Creole Butter Cajun Marinade Injector with Cajun seasoning is our favorite way to roast a chicken.  I just love this Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken; sometimes I even prepare it in   

Preparing The Chicken In Slow Cooker Instead Of The Oven

The benefit of the crock-pot is you do not have to watch the chicken when it cooks.  I also really like to roast this Cajun Whole Chicken in the oven when I have time.  The chicken will still be super moist, and the skin will be brown on the outside.  If using your slow cooker, you may want to place the chicken in the oven to brown the skin.  

Add Green Beans And Potatoes

Whether you prepare this Cajun Roasted Whole Chicken in the crockpot or the oven, you need to add some green beans and potatoes around the bottom of the baking dish.  The potatoes and green beans will soak up all the juices and flavors of the chicken.  They are terrific!  While the chicken is cooling and being cut into pieces, my kids will pop a green bean or potato in their mouths over and over.  I have to make my family stop eating their vegetables cooked with this Cajun Roasted Chicken until we put the food on the table.

First Step:

  • Wash and dry the chicken well.

Second Step:

  • Inject the chicken with the full amount of Cajun injector
  • Season the chicken well on the inside and outside with Cajun seasoning.

Third Step:

  • Place a meat thermometer in the chicken.   Most ovens these days has one built into the oven.  If not, check the check with a handheld meat thermometer.

Fourth Step:

  • Bake Chicken at 350 for 30 minutes.

Fifth Step:

  • To make a one pot meal, remove chicken from the oven and add the green beans and potatoes around the bottom of the chicken.
  • Add a cup of chicken broth.

Sixth Step: Bake until it reaches 170 degrees F

  • Continue baking until the chicken temperature reaches 170 degrees about 10 to 15 more minutes.  Most ovens these days has one built into the oven.  If not, check the check with a handheld meat thermometer.

Seventh Step: Brown the Skin

  • Turn the oven to broil, and cook until the chicken skin browns about 5 minutes.  The will depend on the rack you put it on.  Please do not leave the oven!  Watch it continuously while it is boiling.  It will brown quickly.

  1. Another way to roast a hen and keep it moist is in a crock pot. Just season that bird any way you like, a five pounder fits nicely in a 5-6 quart cooker, set it on high and 3-4 hours it should be around 180*. The only drawback is it doesn’t brown and crisp up the skin(bummer) so you could pop the bird in an oven at 400* and keep an eye on it. Now keep in mind I’m a dumb ole truck driver, next time I roast another bird in a slow cooker I’m going to take my heat gun and see if that will give that lil’ chick a quick tan. Watch my posts I come up with some crazy and unorthodox approaches in the galley. You see I like to knock back a few celebratory tipples so I get half crocked while I’m crockpottin’ (probably where I get these off the wall ideas, huh) L.D. …. jus’ dancin with the Devil in the kitchen. Bon Appetite! Adios n’ Hasta La Bye Bye!
