Love this recipe for Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken (whole chicken) as I can make it either use for a recipe, or even freeze it along with the broth for another day.

  1. Combine the spices in a small bowl.
  2. Remove any giblets from chicken and rinse the chicken.
  3. Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
  4. Place in resealable plastic bag and refrigerate overnight. (I sometimes skip this step if I’m really in a hurry).
  5. When ready to cook, put chopped onion in bottom of slow cooker.
  6. Add chicken. No liquid is needed, the chicken will make it’s own juices.
  7. Cover. Cook on low for 4-8 hours, checking doneness after 4 hours.

Note: I recommend using a pop-up timer in the chicken to avoid overcooking.

Optional: Depending on how I’m serving this bird, I sometimes place under the broiler to brown it up!

Happy Crocking!
