The crockpot is not only conveniently hands-off, but it yields the most moist roast beef (not just chicken). It works every time. Crockpot-roasting is especially good for grass-fed beef and yields very tender, moist meat.
So simple and handy, it requires almost no effort to cook whole chickens in the Crock Pot, but yields tender, juicy chicken for sandwiches, soups, casseroles, and skillet dishes. It results in a good amount of chicken (because I cook 2 at a time) to put away for future meals. [by Wardee Harmon]
