     Crockpot whole chicken

Category   Entrees - Maindishes
Sub Category   None

1 whole chicken
1/2 cup salad dressing of your choosing
can of condensed cream soup (celery, mushroom, chicken, onion, etc...)
Mrs. Dash - any variety
McCormick Peppercorn Medley Grinder
Poultry seasoning
Fresh herbs of your choosing - optional
Low sodium broth - chicken or veg

Choose a salad dressing and soup with flavors that go well together. Wash the chicken thoroughly, make sure there are no giblets stuck in the cavity. Set aside any giblets for another recipe. Make sure there are no feathers. Use a pair of shears to cut off any globs of fat. Never use scissors that are going to be used for anything other than cooking.
As you are cleaning out the chicken use your finger to separate the skin from the meat and let the water flow into the space to open it up. Drain all of the water. This might mean using your hands to press the water back out.
Using a spoon, evenly scoop the dressing between the skin and the meat. Massage the skin to make sure the dressing gets all over. (optional)- Stuff fresh herbs inside the skin. Pour half of the stock into the crockpot and place chicken in, neck side down. Put the condensed soup directly into the cavity of the chicken and lay over, breast side down. Pour rest of stock over top of chicken. Sprinkle with Mrs. Dash, fresh ground black pepper, and just a slight dash of poultry seasoning. Cook on high 5 hours or until meat begins falling off bone. Remove from crockpot. Remove skin from chicken and discard (do not eat). The meat will be too tender to slice so just pull it off the bone onto a serving plate. Discard any soup still inside the cavity. Strain chicken stock from bottom of crock pot and save for another dish.
It is important that you do not eat the skin or the remainder of soup still inside the cavity. The fat content of the skin causes problems with your heart, gall bladder, pancreas, and more. Never eat anything that has been cooked inside the cavity of any poultry. The risk of Salmonella is greatly increased. Using heart healthy and low sodium dressings and soups combined with the Mrs. Dash and low sodium stock makes this recipe an excellent way for those suffering heart conditions to eat seasoned food. Keep in mind that those with heart problems and diabetes should limit their consumption of meats prepared on the bone or with skin still on. While this meal is healthier than most it is still on the edge of what is healthy for someone with heart of diabetic issues.
Serving Suggestions
Serve with a leafy green salad and a hot veg side.
