  • 5 lb whole chicken (insides removed)
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons steak seasoning
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • aluminum foil, or thickly-sliced onions or vegetables


  • Pat chicken dry with paper towels.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, steak seasoning, salt, pepper until combined. Rub the seasoning mix all over the outside and inside of the chicken.
  • Roll up a few small balls of aluminum foil place them on the bottom of your slow cooker bowl to serve as a "rack" for the chicken, so that it doesn't cook in the juices that will accumulate in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Place the chicken on top of the aluminum foil (or veggies). Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
  • Carefully remove the chicken from the slow cooker, it could be so tender it will fall apart.


I have been known to put 2 whole chickens in at the same time. I have a large oval slow cooker, they fit snug but it works.
We make this chicken regularly and in our slow cooker, it only takes 6 hours on low.
