Slow Cooker Roasted Chicken
Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken - This chicken is super moist, tender and full of amazing flavor! 5 minute prep time, set and let cook!
- 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.
