Easy is no joke with this chicken! Season, set, and let cook for fall-apart delicious chicken.

Serving Suggestions

Strain drippings from slow cooker and use to make gravy or add to homemade stock/soup. Add the shredded/sliced chicken to pasta, rice, salads, soup, or any other use that calls for cooked chicken.

Recipe Notes

For a built-in side dish, add carrots, onions, mushrooms, potatoes, or other hearty vegetables to the slow cooker with the chicken.

This recipe uses salt-free seasonings, but you can use almost any savory blend that you like: barbecue, curry, herb, etc. The possibilities are endless!


Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe


Discard giblets and neck from chicken and pat it dry with a paper towel. Set into the dish of your slow cooker and season the chicken all over, including in the cavity and under the skin. If you're using a salt-free blend, season with a generous pinch of Mayan Sea Salt if desired. Cook on high for about 3 hours or low for about 7 hours (internal temperature in the chicken breast should reach at least 160 degrees). Carefully move the chicken to a platter (it may be so tender that it falls off the bone) and let it rest for 15 min. before carving or shredding.
