Growing up, my mother always made roasted chicken for special occasions, and the aroma of it baking in the oven still brings back fond memories. However, now that I live on my own, I don’t have the luxury of a big oven, nor do I have the time to monitor it for hours. This is where the Slow Cooker Whole Chicken recipe comes in handy! It’s a fantastic alternative to roasted chicken, and it’s so easy to make.

Let’s start with the ingredients. You will need a 5 lb. small whole chicken, butter, lemon (optional), carrots, red onion, dried thyme (rosemary or oregano can be substituted), salt, paprika, garlic powder, and pepper. You can also add any other vegetables you like, such as potatoes or celery, to the bottom of the slow cooker for extra flavor and nutrition.

To begin, wash and pat dry the chicken. Remove any extra parts or packaging from the inside of the chicken and drain off any liquid. Next, add the carrots and onion to the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables. Pour the melted butter over the chicken and squeeze lemon halves over it.
