Slow Cooker Chicken (Whole)

  • Cooking Time:

    8–10 hours
  • Servings:



Whole Chick­en
salt to taste
pep­per to taste
gar­lic pow­der to taste
onion pow­der to taste
papri­ka to taste
1 — 2 T. Water
Bar­beque Sauce (add accord­ing to your lik­ing)

Don­na Z. J. likes to throw a whole chick­en in her slow cook­er! I see so many things to do with this recipe Don­na, thank you so much for shar­ing!

  1. Don­na sea­sons her whole chick­en on all sides with salt, pep­per, gar­lic pow­der, onion pow­der, and papri­ka (papri­ka is key–gives it a great taste!).
  2. She doesn’t add more than a table­spoon or two of water to keep it from stick­ing to the bot­tom.
  3. Cov­er. Cook on Low all day, and the meat will fall off the bones and be deli­cious.

Don­na says they like to shred it and add bar­be­cue sauce. Serve on hot dog or ham­burg­er buns. I think this would also be good with­out the bar­beque sause, and just shred­ded to put on sal­ads!

Hap­py Crock­ing!

I always make a whole chick­en in my crock­pot with lots of sea­son­ings, only I put the chick­en on a steel rack, add a cup of water to the bot­tom (so the drip­pings don’t burn), then I save and freeze all the drip­pings for lat­er use. When I want to make a home­made gravy or sauce requir­ing chick­en broth, this is SO much bet­ter than open­ing a can. It is full of fla­vor like you would not believe. And it’s great to add to stir fryes. Also, if you’re going to be gone all day and don’t want it to… Read more »


Can you spec­i­fy a bet­ter time frame? “All day” is a lit­tle vague for me.… 🙂

Do you have to thaw the whole chick­en first ?
