Recipe: Easiest Ever Slow Cooker “Roast” Chicken
- 3 to 4 pound whole chicken
Choose one of the following salt-free seasonings:
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. Bohemian Forest European Style Seasoning
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. Cantanzaro Herbs
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. Summit County Seasoning
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. Mt. Evans Butchers Rub
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. California Citrus Rub
Remove giblets and pat chicken dry with paper towel. Rub chicken thoroughly with seasoning of choice, sprinkling some inside the cavity as well. Set chicken in a slow cooker and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours, or until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165 to 170 degrees. Carefully remove the chicken to a platter (it will be so tender that it should be falling apart off the bone), cover with foil and allow it to rest 5 to 10 min. before carving and serving. While chicken is resting, pour the juices from the slow cooker into a small saucepan and simmer for 5 to 10 min. to reduce and serve on the side as a sauce.
This was designed as a salt-free recipe, but salt can be rubbed on the chicken with the seasoning and/or added to the finishing sauce. You could also brine the whole chicken, if desired, using Savory's Brining Mix. Find Brining Mix Instructions here.
