Since my Daughter is getting over being sick and my sister is in the hospital recovering from back surgery we decided to make something different for thanksgiving this year. Last week we had found a couple of pounds of chanterelle while hiking through the wet forests. Combining this with two of my favorite foods to make a tasty treat for three.
- Whole chicken
- 1 lb of chanterelle
- 6 cloves of garlic
- salt and pepper
After cleaning fir needles off of the mushrooms we chopped them up into pieces and added the chopped cloves of garlic to the mix. Then you take your mix and stuff it into the cavity of the chicken. Salt and pepper to taste (I tend to put a lot of black pepper on my foods). Place into a crock pot and cook on high for five hours. Remove from the crock pot and serve. This is a great easy dish to make and it has great flavor.

I love cooking a whole chicken in the slow cooker, it’s so easy and it never dries out. I bet it tasted great with all those mushrooms for flavour.
It tastes wonderful. The garlic blends well with the mushrooms for flavor
I like the chanterelle stuffing idea!
I’ve never picked chanterelles……a bit scary if you don’t know what you’re doing. And yes, crock pot chicken is so moist!
A lot of the supermarkets on Oregon sell chanterelles in the fall during mushroom season. I have used dried porcini mushrooms for this and had great results.
