Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken (whole chicken)

  • Cooking Time:

    4–8 hours
  • Servings:



2 tsp. sea­son­ing
2 tsp. smoked papri­ka
1 tsp. onion pow­der
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. black pep­per
1/2 tsp. gar­lic pow­der
1 tsp. white pep­per
1 large roast­ing chick­en
1 c. chopped onions
5 small red pota­toes
olive oil
addi­tion­al salt & pep­per

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 dis­card or freeze for lat­er use.
  3. Rub spice mix­ture onto the chick­en.
  4. Wash and pat dry pota­toes.
  5. Rub pota­toes with olive oil and sprin­kle with salt & pep­per.
  6. Wrap pota­toes in foil and place in the bot­tom of a 6-Quart or larg­er slow cook­er.
  7. Next, add onion to the slow cook­er.  Sea­son onion with sat & pep­per.
  8. Add chick­en.
  9. Cov­er. Cook on low for 4 hours, check­ing done­ness after 4 hours and cook longer if need­ed.

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!

I have found that cook­ing poul­try with the breast down keeps the meat more moist..Turkey or chick­en, this allows the juices and the sea­son­ings from herbs & the bones to get into the dri­er white meat.


I made this instead of using spices I used bbq sauce it was yum­my


This makes a great broth for soup, and the chick­en is won­der­ful. Try­ing this with a turkey breast today!


2 tsp of sea­son­ing? What kind?
