Recipe for Roast Chicken Dinner in the Slow Cooker

One of the most popular meals to make in a slow cooker is roast chicken, since it’s not only easy, but the chicken comes out incredibly moist and delicious. There’s enough broth left in the bottom of the slow cooker to strain and make into gravy to go over the potatoes that cook with the chicken. Slow Cooker Roast Chicken Dinner can be assembled in about 15 minutes, so it’s easy on the cook, and it cooks unattended while more important tasks are being accomplished.
If time is short, browning isn’t absolutely necessary, however, it makes the finished dish look much prettier. If you’re lucky enough to own a 3-in-1 cooker (steams, pressure cooks, slow cooks), the chicken can be browned right in the pot before setting the slow cook time; that eliminates the need to wash a dish and keeps the browned bits in the slow cooker adding to the flavor of the juices.

There are as many variations to this chicken dish as there are cooks, so using favorite spices, rubs, or herbs on the chicken is absolutely recommended. Purists can always stick with salt and pepper, and the dinner will still be delicious.

8 Servings

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 to 5 pounds whole chickens, washed and patted dry
salt and freshly ground pepper

1 pound small red potatoes, halved
1 pound carrots, pared and cut into chunks
1 large onion, quartered and sliced

1/2 cup cold water
2 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet or the 3-in-1; place the chicken in the oil, breast side down, and brown thoroughly.

  2. Transfer the browned chicken to the slow cooker (or turn it breast side up in the 3-in-1).

  3. Sprinkle salt and pepper generously over the chicken.

  4. Arrange the potatoes, carrots, and onions around the chicken; sprinkle a little salt and pepper over them.

  5. Cover and cook on low 3-5 hours or until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through.

  6. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter; surround it with the vegetables.

  7. Sprinkle the parsley over all.

  8. Cover with foil and keep warm.

  9. Pour the juices in the slow cooker through a fine sieve into a saucepan.

  10. Heat over medium heat to boiling.

  11. Mix the water and flour until smooth; whisk into the juices.

  12. Season with salt and pepper and serve over the potatoes and chicken.
