Mouthwatering slow cooker roast chicken

Roast chicken. Those two words are enough to get mouths watering.

I made my first whole roast chicken. And I used my slow cooker to do it. It was extremely easy and the results were amazing.

I had originally planned on making 40 cloves of garlic roast chicken, but I kept running out of time each night to make it. So Saturday rolled around and we were off to a festival a drive’s way. This fresh whole chicken needed to be cooked. Using the slow cooker become a viable option. The slow cooker could prepared a tasty hot meal for us as we were away. What a nice thing to come home to after being out all day!

Our chicken was a fresh, natural chicken weighing in at almost three pounds. The preparation couldn’t have been easier.

Let’s make it.

Coarsely chop an onion and a few handfuls of carrots. Put them in the bottom of the slow cooker.



Use whatever spice mix you’d like.

I made mine with paprika, kosher salt, thyme leaves, garlic powder, red pepper, and black pepper.

Rub it on the chicken.

Place the chicken on the bed of onions and carrots.

Put the lid on. Then select low, high, or auto setting. I used the auto setting.

And let it cook for six to eight (or more) hours.


The result is moist, flavorful, fall off the bone roast chicken. Serve with the onions and carrots.

I think I’m hooked on making roast chicken.

Wonder if I can make the 40 cloves of garlic roast chicken in the slow cooker?
