The ultimate slow cooker whole roast chicken

Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s recipe. This slow cooker whole roast chicken recipe was one of those recipes that I just didn’t believe was possible. So needless to say I had to try it.

I’m having an absolute love affair with my slow cooker at the moment. I just love the idea of dumping everything into one dish and then leaving it to do it’s thing. My favourite part is arriving back in my kitchen at the designated time only to find that dinner is cooked. And to top it all off I had very little input!

This whole roast chicken was made with a beautiful spice rub blend. The spice rub is a combination of fragrant spices which blend together beautifully. This combination of spices gave this chicken an absolutely gorgeous flavour. To top it all off, my whole family loved this dish.

Quite a few of the slow cooker recipes that I have read say to take the chicken out of the slow cooker and place it under the grill for a few minutes. I didn’t find that it was necessary for this recipe. This slow cooker whole roast chicken was fall of the bone tender and browned nicely too.

If you are looking for some variety in your chicken recipes then have a look at these 10 chicken recipes you can’t live without or this quick and easy paleo pesto chicken. These recipes are sure to spice up your chicken with warm and homely flavours.

I hope that you enjoy this recipe and would love to see photographs of you cooked masterpieces. Until next time, Leanne xoxo
