This is an amazing and simple set and forget recipe for the perfect whole chicken. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and you set your slow cooker to high. Come back around 4 hours later and you have a perfectly cooked whole chicken ready to be carved! Make sure you let the chicken cool before you start to carve into it, that way any of the juices that haven’t dripped to the bottom of the slow cooker will stay in the meat and not on your cutting board.
**Note I started doing this recipe so I could use the cooked chicken for anothing recipe, anyway that’s why I used foil as seen in the picture. You can easily replace that with potatoes, carrots or what ever side you would like to go along with the chicken. It doesn’t have to be foil to come out right.
If you decide to try this let me know how it goes! Happy cooking!
- 5 lbs Whole chicken
- 1 tbsp Paprika
- 3 tbsp Steak seasoning
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Cook chicken on high for 4 to 4½ hours depending on size of chicken and strength of your slow cooker. Times will vary, so use a food thermometer to ensure the chicken has reached 165 degrees. Let your chicken rest on a cutting board for about 20 minutes before carving.
