garlic cloves, minced
celery stalks, diced
whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces
cup chopped fresh dill
teaspoon fine sea salt, more for salting the chicken and more to taste
teaspoon black pepper, more to taste
Place garlic, carrots, onion, and celery into the insert of your slow cooker.
Pat chicken dry and season generously with sea salt, then add the chicken into the slow cooker.
Add in the water, dill, salt, pepper, and bay leaf.
Set on low for 8 hours.
Once done, discard the bay leaf and remove the chicken to shred. Discard the skin and bones.
Place chicken back into the slow cooker. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
I buy pasture-raised chickens whenever possible.
