Slow cooker roast chicken (recipe)

Sept. 22, 2016

Slow cooker roast chicken

Making a whole roast chicken in the slow cooker is surprisingly easy. Brush the chicken with spices, plunk the bird in the pot, set the timer and walk away. Hardly rocket science, right? With this recipe from Sharp Best Health, you can enjoy delicious, low-fat chicken for several meals’ worth of dishes — including soups or salads — or you can enjoy it all on its own.

Slow Cooker Roast Chicken
Set it and forget it. Serve with your favorite roasted vegetables or a green salad.
Yields approximately 4 servings (depending on size of chicken)

2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (red) pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 onion
1 large whole body fryer chicken

Combine dried spices in a small bowl. Loosely chop the onion and place it in the bottom of your slow cooker. Remove any giblets and then rub the spice mixture all over the chicken. You can place some of the spices inside the cavity and under the skin covering the breasts, if desired. You can also remove the skin to lower the fat content, but the chicken may be just slightly less juicy.

Place chicken on top of the onions in the slow cooker, cover and turn it on to low. There is no need to add any liquid. Cook for 6 to 8 hours on low, or until meat falls off the bone.
