There are very few things in this world that I find more homey or comforting than a roast chicken. I love they way my house smells when I make one, and I feel so motherly when I present a whole chicken with brown and crispy skin to my family for dinner. Making a roast chicken is incredibly simple, but I have found an ever simpler way to make one. My new method is roasting a whole chicken in the slow cooker. You simply add some vegetables to the bottom of the insert, add a chicken, season, and cook. Take the chicken out and place under the broiler for a few minutes to brown and crisp the skin. When cooked in the slow cooker, the chicken is so moist and flavorful. No dry chicken here. Game changer.
Come over to tablespoon.com to see my Slow Cooker Faves Collection, and see what else I made in the slow cooker. You might be surprised.
I start by adding onions, carrots, and potatoes to the bottom of the insert.
Wash and dry the chicken and coat with butter that has herbs and seasoning in it.
Place the cooked chicken under the broiler for about 5 minutes to brown and crisp the skin. I promise that this will be a new family favorite.
