Is it even possible? If you how do you just bung it in raw and cook it on low , do you baste it? Totally clueless thanks.

I usually put some rolled up foil or potatoes in the bottom, put the chicken on top, lid on and that's it. I only have a high or low setting so its around 3-4 hours on high or 7-8 on low. A splash of stock or water in the bottom helps it to stay moist but only a little drop to basically cover the bottom. You don't need to put any liquid in tho.

Chuck it in, no water just few herbs on the top, veg booked with it is very oily there is a lot of fat comes out of a whole chicken. I always do veg separately. The slow cooker generates enough moisture. I don't eat meat but the rest of the family love it from the slow cooker, you really can't go wrong :-)
