Secrets of Success

Slow Cooker Roast Chicken




Roast a whole chicken in your slow cooker (on Low for 10 hours). Easy, cheap, falling-apart tender, and lots of leftover meat for quick and healthy chicken dishes throughout the week! (Remove the skin after roasting.)

More Information:

Make your own low-fat, no-salt-added chicken broth with the bones. Slow cook bones in water with onion, carrot, celery, bay leaf, other herbs overnight. Refrigerate; skim off solidified fat. Portion and freeze. Cheaper and better than canned!

  • This is a great tip! I got a new slow cooker 3 weeks ago and this is the second thing I cooked in it. It works very well. I didn't add water. The juices from the chicken kept it moist. - by KARENO5
  • I liked this idea but that's my question too - what do you put in with it? - by SPLASHDOG1
  • Love my crock pot never thought of putting an entire chicken in.

    Thank you for idea.
