Very tasty and easy! Because of the foil balls, the fat drains off the chicken as it cooks.


  1. Make 4 or 5 loose balls of aluminum foil and place in bottom of crock pot.
  2. Clean chicken inside and out. Spray with olive oil spray.
  3. Sprinkle generously inside and out with seasoned salt.
  4. Put chicken back-side down in crock pot (on top of foil balls).
  5. Cook on high 4-6 hours.

This is our new go-to roasted chicken recipe! I also wrap potatoes in foil and put in the bottom of the slow cooker (no sense wasting good cooking space!).

This is a wonderfully simple recipe to obtain a delicious and extremely tender chicken. I made as directed. However not having any olive oil cooking spray, I simply poured about 2-3 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil over my very large chicken and also sprinkled with the salt and pepper and also used a "Rustic Tuscan Seasoning" from Costco. I don't recall how many pounds this chicken was, but it filled the top to the brim of my Kitchenaid Crockpot. I allowed it to cook on high for the full 6 hours, then I lowered the temp to low and cooked an additional 2 hours. While the chicken was cooking, I simmered the giblets in water with onion, carrots and celery. When the chicken was done, I removed the chicken from the crockpot. Then in a separate container added 1/2 cup of flour to enough water to make a stir-able consistency. I then stirred this mixture into the crockpot, adding enough of my chicken broth from the giblets to make gravy. Then turned the crockpot up to high until thickened. This chicken is so tender, delicious and very flavorful! I served with mashed potatoes, corn and the best gravy anyone could ask for! Best of all, there are enough leftovers for a second meal : ) Thank you, CookinMamaof3!

I used lemon pepper seasoning on my chicken. It came out delicious.
