How to make it

  • Place trivet or steamer basket in 4-5 quart crockpot.
  • Rinse chicken and drain well, then pat dry with paper towels.
  • Place celery, gingeroot, and green onions inside chicken.
  • In small bowl, combine soy sauce and five spice powder to make a paste. Rub this mixture over the chicken. Place chicken on trivet inside crockpot.
  • Cover crockpot and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours, until chicken is tender and juices run clear when pricked with fork and internal temperature of the white meat registers 180 degrees F.
  • Discard vegetables inside chicken; carve to serve.

    Nothing to blow my skirt up over my calves. Taste is good. Tastes like chicken. :-)
    Used a bowl strainer. Liked the way it kept the bird out of the renderings.

    Made some pics for you.

    Probably either of your suggestions would work I imagine. Yes it keeps the meat out of the fat and juices. --Sorry it took me so long to respond. We moved recently are are adjusting to "dial-up" after being accustomed to high-speed internet. :-(

    I don't have a trivet or steamer basket. Would it be okay to use a bowl strainer or several tinfoil balls in the bottom of the crock pot to keep the bird in the air. I'm assuming that the idea is to elevate the bird so the fat will run off.

    This will be great for Crock Pot season! I learned about the Chinese five spice powder from another GR recipe. I have a bottle of it now, but it's posted in the recipe version, too.
