“I'm going to be using this a *lot this fall and winter. Two and a half hours in the old crock pot followed by a 10-minute broil gives me perfectly roast chicken every time”
1 chicken

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crumple three pieces of aluminum foil and place in the middle of your slow cooker.
  2. Add wine, garlic, onion, celery and carrot.
  3. Place chicken on top of aluminum foil. (You may have to push the chicken down a bit so it'll all fit in there!).
  4. Sprinkle chicken with herbs, salt and pepper.
  5. Set slow cooker to high and cook for 1/2 hour per pound.
  6. When ready, stick a meat thermometer into leg to ensure it is done. Transfer chicken to a roasting pan and set oven to 500º Fahrenheit.
  7. Roast for 8-10 minutes, or until skin is golden brown.
  8. Serve with roast root vegetables, mashed potatoes, or anything else you'd like!
  9. The best part of this recipe? After your done cooking everything, you'll have a considerable amount of jus left over from the chicken. Whisk it with some cornstarch for a truly delicious gravy, or save it in your fridge or freezer for at-the-ready soup stock when you need it in a pinch. (It's so much better than bouillon.).
