This Crock Pot Mississippi Whole Chicken is a variation of a tried and true recipe Cris has been cooking up for a long time! I couldn’t let her have all the fun!
Aunt Lou here.
Cris has made up Crock Pot Mississippi Pork Roast, Crock Pot Mississippi Beef Roast and Crock Pot Mississippi Chicken Thighs…so when I was trying to think of recipes that were easy to make and could fit in my July $50 Challenge, I knew I wanted to make a whole chicken. Cris generously offered to let me try her “Mississippi” recipe on a whole chicken and boy was it good!
