Half A Chicken Crock Pot

Some times it’s so ****** hot you don’t even want to think of adding any more heat to the kitchen but still want something more than a cold meal. If you have a electrical outlet on your deck, patio or anywhere outside your house, then cook a meal outside!!
Utilising a crockpot a set and forget meal is easily prepared.
Here’s one.

Recipe ingredients:
1/2 chicken with gizzards if possible
Italian sausage
Green onions
White onion
Sliced mushrooms
Bay leaf
Pepper blend
Hot pepper flakes
Cumin seed
Dill seed and weed
Broth or stock
Oil,olive oil,butter
Turnip, sliced thin
Hot sauce

Plug in crockpot and preheat on high

Dice ingredients, less tomato, mushrooms,garlic and
Sauté (optional)with the sausages , just a bit for flavour meld.
Season and adjust.


Broil or grille,(optional)1/2 of a chicken, coat with olive oil, just to brown,close to broiler heat. Both sides.


Have another cup of coffee! (3rd)

My favourite part, layering the crockpot.

Gizzards, provides flavour.
The half chicken
Any juice from the broiler pan
Smashed garlic
The sausage/vegetable mixture



Sliced tomato
Sliced Mushrooms
A shake or two of hot sauce
Broth, not too much just to coat the bottom, I don’t want chicken soup.
Bay leaves


Done ,start timer from 10:oo am
To really avoid heat build up, place the crockpot outside if you have an exterior outlet. Since we have a slight chance of rain I put up and umbrella.


Figure about 2 hours on high and a couple of hours on low.
Since my old crockpot doesn’t have blue tooth or wifi, I’ll have to manually downshift it at about noon or so.
Haven’t decided if the rice will be added later or cooked separate


It came out slightly more watery than expected, but I made a gravy out the juices.
