Having a toddler and a teething almost six month old, I have very little time to prepare a nice, nutritious dinner for the family. This is why I LOVE my crock pot. I can put my meat and veggies in the pot and have dinner 4-6 hours later! I love this roasted crock pot chicken!

Crock Pot Roasted Chicken Recipe

Recipe Type: Crock Pot
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 6
This crock pot roasted chicken is quick, easy, nutritious and delicious. It is nice and moist and the meat falls off the bone.
  • 1 whole chicken, remove giblets and neck and use for stock
  • 1 onion, white or yellow
  • 6-8 cloves garlic (sub 1-2 Tbsp Garlic Powder)
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Sage
  • 1 tsp Tarragon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  1. Remove the chicken from the package, removing neck and giblets for use in stock and rinse chicken in cold water.
  2. Roughly chop onion and stuff it into the cavity of the chicken.
  3. Slice garlic cloves and insert between the skin and the meat of the chicken.
  4. Combine seasoning and rub onto the chicken.
  5. Place everything in the Crock pot on high for 4-6 hours. It should be done cooking in 4 hours but the longer it cooks the more tender it will be.

Throw in veggies of your choice when you are cooking then dinner is done! So simple.

Welcome to the second week of Simple Meals Friday!

There is nothing like having a collection of simple meals to throw together in a slow cooker first thing in the morning or in a skillet as a last minute dinner. 

What are your favorite slow cooker, rice cooker, skillet meals and salads?

We want to know your easy to make meals. It’s great learn and be inspired by others. When you link up on either of our sites the links will show up on both blogs.

Meet Your Hosts

Please Read and Follow these Simple Meals Friday Rules

Keep the foods “nourishing”, such as homemade chicken stocks, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, healthy fats (lard, coconut oil, butter, olive oil, tallow), unrefined sugars, flours and salts and meats.

Please don’t include recipes using processed oils such as soy and canola oil, msg laden bouillons and other highly processed foods. Try to incorporate traditional methods of preparing foods like, sprouting, soaking, sourdough and lacto-fermentation. If I notice a recipe using these ingredients it will be deleted.

Link back to this blog hop, it is a common linking courtesy. It helps to build a stronger blogging community. That way we can all learn and share with each other.

  12. Just got this in the crockpot! I had room to put a couple sweet potatoes along side the chicken which my kids love. Also, I trimmed a bit of the fat off and it loosened up the skin so I slid a couple onion pieces between the skin and the breast. I can’t wait for dinner now!! And the best part is I will have a healthy dinner for my family and time to hang out with the kiddos after school, yeah!
    Thanks for the awesome recipe.

    Hey I was wondering if there needed to be any chicken broth in there.. it feels like that maybe it won’t be moist enough.. i’ve never done this before so I’m just checking

    • Amanda says:

      Nope! The crock pot lets the juices from the onion and the chicken release and it self marinates the chicken. You can add other root veggies to the mix and have a bout a cup of delicious pre-broth at the end too! This is actually very moist.

  16. Jan Bell says:

    Like the look of this crockpot chicken dinner but it is unwise to wash chicken before cooking. ….. The United States Department of Agriculture advises against the practice of rinsing poultry or meat before cooking it. The problem is that when you rinse raw chicken, you’re allowing the bacteria that is present on the surface of the poultry to spread to everything else that’s nearby — including sink and counter surfaces, kitchen utensils and any other foods that might be within spattering range of the rinsing water.

    And as the USDA also points out, any bacteria present on the chicken’s surface will be destroyed if you cook the poultry properly and thoroughly.
