You are correct. It also calls for 3 pounds of brisket, which is a lot. Guess it was correct after all..

Yeah...
we only make 14 servings when we go upstate to see the kids & grandrats... or they all come down here to see us!
For Deb & I, I'd just cut the recipe in 1/3'rds... and have leftovers...
we'd get two or three nights out of that...

Yes, that is odd, why they would have it as 14 servings, other than I guess it's the recipe for a whole brisket..

Sticky Chicken...... [Re: caribbeanscout]
      #1105491 - 01/27/10 08:20 AM (68.163.130.29)

This looks great! It's from www.about.com which has many great recipes. I've never cooked a whole chicken in the crockpot so am interested in how they come out. This tempted my palate .
I think this sounds like a good recipe for a crockpot liner.....

Crockpot Sticky Chicken

This chicken turns a beautiful gorgeous brown color and is so moist and delicious.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours

Ingredients:

* 4 garlic cloves, minced
* 1 whole orange, sliced
* 3 Tbsp. honey
* 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
* 1 Tbsp. finely minced ginger root
* 4 lb. whole roasting chicken
* 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
* 1 cup chicken stock
* salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Rinse chicken thoroughly and drain well. Pat the chicken with paper towels to dry well. Stuff garlic and orange slices inside chicken.

Spray a 4-6 quart crockpot with nonstick cooking spray and place chicken inside. Combine honey, soy sauce and ginger root in small bowl and pour over chicken. Cover crockpot. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. The chicken should be fork tender and thoroughly cooked; 170 degrees into the leg or thigh on an instant read thermometer.

Remove chicken from crockpot and cover with foil to keep warm. Mix cornstarch and chicken stock in small saucepan and add the juices left in the crockpot. Mix well, transfer to a saucepan, and cook over medium high heat until the sauce boils and thickens, stirring frequently. Add salt and pepper to gravy to taste and serve with chicken.
6 servings

contessa, that sounds great! i've made whole chicken in the slow cooker and it never turns out nicely browned, rather falling off the bone good. i still plan on making the lentil soup, but this chicken one seems mighty fine too. thanks for sharing another recipe.

Made this chicken on Sat night. Fire going, crockpot going, wine, what a great cold evening. We loved the chicken. Thank you Contessa! We did not make the extra sauce, because the chicken was so moist. Will definitely make it again. Very easy!

I made this yesterday and it was delicious. The meat fell off the bone and was extremely moist. There were parts that browned, however, most of it did not. Not sure if I did something wrong, but it was fine by me. I did make the gravy, however, I think I would half it in the future as it made way too much for the chicken. I'll definitely make it again and serve it for company.
