We have a couple of frozen chickens in our freezer, and I’ve been wanting to roast them but haven’t wanted to spend all day near the kitchen. I then wondered whether it was possible to roast a chicken in the crockpot?

A quick consulation with google informed me that yes, it was possible, so I decided to give it a whirl. If you’d like a delicious, fall-off-the-bone-tender, succulent chicken dinner with minimal work, this is a great technique! Try it and a perfect chicken will be waiting for you when you get home from work–and your house will smell delicious, too!

Get a delicious, home-cooked chicken without the work! It's the perfect meal to come home to on a chilly day!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 tsp salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 2 Tbsp Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 garlic clove

Instructions

  • Place four wadded-up balls of aluminum foil in the bottom of your crockpot.
  • Remove the neck and giblets from your chicken, rinse it, and pat dry.
  • Mix all the spices together and apply the dry rub all over the bird's surface, including inside the cavity. Place the garlic clove inside the body cavity. (A pre-mixed dry rub, or different formulation works fine, adjust to your taste.)
  • Place the chicken on top of the foil balls.
  • Cover and cook on low all day. If you're a little shorter on time, cook for 2 hours on high and then reduce heat to low for remaining cook time.
  • A half hour before serving, siphon out the juice with a turkey baster and keep cooking. You could even leave the lid off for this last half-hour. Save your juice for a soup base, it's delicious!

The foil balls don’t need to be big, you just want to elevate the chicken a little, so the bottom doesn’t get too soggy. You could use large chunks of potato or another thick vegetable as well.
