Slow Cooker Chicken

Slow Cooker Chicken - easy and delicious!

Start by placing foil balls in the bottom of the slow cooker. This step is not absolutely necessary. The benefit is that it is easier to remove from the slow cooker in one piece if the bottom of the chicken hasn’t been simmering away in the juices all day. It’s really delicious either way, but creating a foil ball rack in the slow cooker makes it more like a traditional roasted chicken you can carve


1 whole chicken around 5 pounds, insides removed and washed and patted dry

1 tablespoon of paprika – more or less to taste

3 Tablespoons of steak seasoning – more or less to taste

Salt and Pepper


Remove any insides and rinse chicken well. Pat dry with paper towels. Season the entire chicken, inside and out. I use salt, pepper, paprika and all-purpose steak seasoning.

Cook chicken on high for 4 to 4 1/2 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..
