Question whole chicken in crock pot

I am trying to cook a whole chicken in the crock pot. I have had it on low since about 4:30 PM and now it's 10:00PM. It's still not done! Is it ok to cook on low overnight and take it out around 6am?

Help!

Mary

I'm sure it will be fine - it will just be falling off the bone, which doesn't hurt anything. A crockpot is a "slow" way to cook. The chicken should have been put on this morning. It probably takes about 6 - 8 hours, depending on size, to cook a whole turkey. At 4:30 you put it in too late to eat for dinner.

are you sure it won't dry out too much? I put about 3 cups of water in with it when I started to cook it.

A crockpot will produce more liquid. Isn't there enough liquid in there now? The chicken produces liquid too. I'm sure it will be fine.

No problem. Next time put it in in the morning on low. Even if it was on high it still would have taken about 5 hours.
