Slow Cooker Whole Chicken


Start by placing foil balls in the bottom of the slow cooker. This step is not absolutely neccassary. I have thrown the chicken in many times without. 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
