A super easy must share...

In crock pot put one whole frozen chicken seasoned with salt and pepper only. Pour over the top of it, a large jar of salsa, any brand you like. That's it, cover it and leave it on high setting for the total 8 hours. Now here's the kicker.
Just do it. Trust me on this one.
When chicken is done, take it out and remove the liquid that has accumulated. Chill for a short time to let the oil/grease come to the top and skim off. Pour 2 cups of it in a heavy saucepan and add to that, 1 cup white rice. Cook the standard 20 minutes, and you may have to add a bit of water to this near the end of cooking. Turn heat off 20 minutes after starting and leave lid on a few more minutes. This rice is stupid good. So flavorful, so tender, my dh enjoyed it and said so over and over again. Just had to share this experiment.

I love whole chickens. They make me happy to be alive.

oh you are all so cute.
I love a legit mistake and this could have gone in either direction. fortunate for me, it was stupid good, gad I love to cook!

I should change my name to StupidGoodCooker.
I've used that saying for so many years, got connected with it back in my hairdressing days with my clients as I cooked for our salon almost every day. Someone once said, "Susie, this 4 layer hot crock pot dip is Stupid Good." It stuck

Doesn't the skin turn out all wierd though? I know you wouldn't eat it anyway, but wouldn't it look like something died in there?

geez, squzie, i hope the chicken was dead before it went in...

lefse, this looks like a winner. since we don't eat the skin (until no one's watching ), and my family prefers extremely tender chicken, i think this one will be on the docket for next week.

and easily cooked intellectually challenged rice is right up my alley as well.

thanks!

No it really didn't. I think it's cause I never removed the lid so didn't let the steam pool up on the lid being able to drop back down on the top of the bird. the color of the red sauce darkened the skin so nicely and it didn't look ookie.
You're right though, we don't eat the skin, well, my dh did eat the drumsticks skin and all, they were so flavorful he said. today for lunch, he got the whole meal again, as per request.

did I ever mention how tender this meat was? my goodness

I'll eat skin but only roasted... if its all floppy and oookie (is that a word?) I'd rather fling it across the room and pretend it wasn't there.


LOL good thing you mention it being pre-dead, I almost went over and nabbed one of the neighbors' pets!!!!!

I don't do rice, but I make chicken like that all the time. I totally recommend the chicken portion of this dish!!
