Slow Cooker Chicken

With the weather cooling down, it is time to break out your crock pots. We just got back from visiting my family and I can tell you that we ate out a lot. I was really looking forward to getting back home and making some yummy dinners at home. We decided to try making a whole chicken in the crock pot and it smelled amazing in here all day. I can tell you that, the chicken tastes as good as it will make your house smell. Here is the recipe:


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 whole onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots,  peeled and chopped
  • 3 parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 5 cloves, peeled
  • 2 tbsp oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder


  1. Peel and chop the vegetables.
  2. Wash and season the chicken.
  3. Place your chicken in the crock pot and arrange veggies around the chicken.
  4. Set Crock Pot to cook on high 5 hours.
  5. Remove from Crock Pot and arrange on platter.
  6. Serve hot and enjoy!
