    Slow Cooker Chicken - put a whole chicken in the crock pot on high for 4 to 4&1/2 hrs - put foil balls on the bottom of the crock pot and it keeps the meat from falling apart from soaking in its own juices all day. The foil balls make it like a rotisserie chicken that you can carve.

    Slow Cooker Chicken... Start by placing foil balls in the bottom of the slow cooker. This step is not absolutely neccassary. I have thrown the chicken in many times without. The benefit is that it is easier to remove from the slow cooker in one piece if the bottom of the chicken hasn’t been simmering away in the juices all day. It’s really delicious either way, but creating a foil ball rack in the slow cooker makes it more like a traditional roasted chicken you can carve... Remove any insides and rinse chicken well. Pat dry with paper towels. Season the entire chicken, inside and out. I use salt, pepper, paprika and all-purpose steak seasoning... Cook chicken on high for 4 to 4 1/2 hours depending on size of chicken and strength of your slow cooker. Times will vary, so use a food thermometer to ensure the chicken has reached 165 degrees. Let your chicken rest on a cutting board for about 20 minutes before carving... 1 whole chicken around 5 pounds, insides removed and washed and patted dry 1 tablespoon of paprika – more or less to taste 3 Tablespoons of steak seasoning – more or less to taste Salt and Pepper... Season chicken, inside and out. Cook in slow cooker lined with foil balls on high for 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees... Recipe notes: I like to use the juices at the bottom of the slow cooker to baste the chicken while it is resting, just to add even more flavor. Though the skin is flavorful, it doesn’t really get super crispy with this cooking method. I use a 5 quart slow cooker, and my chicken fits perfectly. Resist opening the lid to check progress, slow cookers take a long time to come back up to temperature and cooking time will need to be extended.
