The marinade contains lime juice, which tenderizes the chicken. after more than a few hours though, the meat fibres canbecome so soft that the chicken literally falls apart, which means that this dish is not suitable for overnight marinating.
This is a quick and easy chicken receipe that can go as a main course with just about anything. I made a roux in a saucepan with butter and flour and garlic and added the pan drippings to it with the wine instead of leaving it in the oven it would take longer to thicken if let in oven.
If you love good, old-fashioned, down home chicken and dumplings, this is the real thing! Note that this dumpling recipe makes "a bunch of dumplin's" because around here, most folks want more dumplin's than chicken. (prep time includes cooling time for cooked chicken.)
Tender, fall-off-the-bone chicken! Skip the overnight refrigeration if you are in a hurry. For variety, eliminate the onion and substitute a quartered lemon or two, stuffed into the chicken cavity. Chef Shapeweaver had a good suggestion: Use Fajita Seasoning Mix #28011 as another variation. Thanks! The standard size slow cookers are a bit too small and a whole chicken won't fit. You'll need a 6-quart slow cooker for this recipe.
