The secret to a moist and flavorful roast chicken? Cook it in the slow cooker! Line slow cooker with potatoes, carrots and onions, add a chicken, and cook. A classic meal with minimal effort and clean up.

Ingredients

1
whole roasting chicken (3 1/2 - 4 1/2 pounds)
1
large onion, chopped
1
pound baby Yukon Gold potatoes
4
whole peeled carrots, chopped
1
whole lemon (reserve zest)
4
tablespoons room temperature butter
2
cloves minced garlic
2
teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
2
teaspoons fresh thyme
2
teaspoons salt
1
teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

  • 1 Place onions, potatoes and carrots in the bottom of the slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 2 Clean and dry chicken. Zest lemon and reserve. Quarter lemon, and place in the cavity. Place chicken on top of vegetables.
  • 3 In a small bowl, combine butter, garlic, rosemary, thyme and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper.
  • 4 Use hands to coat the chicken in the butter mixture. Season with additional salt and pepper.
  • 5 Cook chicken on LOW for 4-8 hours. The cooking time depends on how large your chicken is. Cook until an internal temperature reaches 160°F in the leg and the juices run clear.
  • 6 Take the chicken out of the slow cooker and place in an oven-proof 9x13-inch pan. Brown the chicken under the broiler for 4-5 minutes or until the skin is brown and crispy.
