1. I always cook mine in the slow cooker and have for years now – even at Christmas – it makes Christmas dinner incredibly unstressful!

    However, I tend to just rinse the chicken under the tap and chuck it in on low for 8 hours. Your onion, rosemary etc. has inspired me to try a bit harder! Thank you!

  2. Dawn has some fantastic slow cooker recipes, doesn’t she? I use mine a couple of times a week,but rarely to do a whole chicken in it. This sounds fantastic. I think i’d carefully transfer it to a roasting tray and blast it in a pre-heated oven for 15 mins to crisp the skin up. Thanks for sharing, Jenny.

    Oh wow Jenny, now I am REALLY sold on the idea of a slow cooker. Just truly delicious by the sounds of it, what a wonderful idea and great to be able to just leave it alone to do its own thing. Thanks for linking up x

    Just looking for a slow cooker recipe and yours was second on google! Yay. Thanks.

  5. I just googled slow cooker roast chicken & found you at no.2 as well ! I’ve bought a couple this week so I’m going to give one a go tomorrow.

    I love cooking a whole chicken in the slow cooker. I put balls of tin foil in the bottom so they don’t stick. x

    thankyou for the tip re chicken just fantastic…that was my very first try with the slow cooker would love to hear what else you have done xx

  9. I tried this and it worked very well. The only thing was that it looked a bit anemic as it didn’t go brown, but it was very tender and almost fell apart.

    Thank you so much for linking up to Domestic Disgrace! Is it possible to do this in the oven as I don’t have a slow cooker?!

  11. I am so going to be trying this! Daughter always complains that the chicken is chewy. Am doing a review for a slow cooker so will quote your blog post (and The Modierer’s!) 🙂

    Just put the chook on now….looking fwd to din dins. Mine already had pork and onion stuffing up his bum so have put lemons on side 🙂

  13. So far, every one of your recipes that I have perused has been immediately bookmarked for future use – sooner, rather than later. You are a cook after my own heart; thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
