Crockpot Roasted Chicken

Adapted from several crockpot-a-whole-chicken-dry recipes, especially The Little Kitchen’s. Like the others it was for a much bigger chicken than the one in my freezer, so I cut it down.




  1. Combine rub ingredients and rub chicken.
  2. Optionally stuff chicken with lemon and some garlic cloves.
  3. Place any onion, celery, carrots, and remaining cloves in the bottom of the crockpot.
  4. Place chicken on top of onion layer.
  5. Optionally fill edges with potato.
  6. Cook on low 4–6 hours, depending on crockpot.



The potatoes are my own addition.

Optionally, you can broil chicken to crisp it up after cooking.
