Always leave too late to start so cooked 2hrs on high then a little over 2hrs on low (350 watt)-the chicken was a bit more than a kilo (you could use a meat thermometer in thickest part)....This is a really tasty recipe....for the 1st time in years my husband actually enjoyed eating chicken...it kept the meat really moist & we devoured the lot!

OMG this tasted amazing, lovely juice and it looked like a real roast chicken. Even my two fussy kids ate it.

Wow! All that flavour previously experienced only in well made broth was there throughout the chicken. I placed a whole, well salted and peppered 1.5 kg bird (but with a large onion stuffed inside) in my 3.5 litre stoneware crockpot. I applied minimal coconut oil at the points of contact but needn't have bothered with the foil base. There was soon loads of juicy liquid to prevent burning or drying. Fantastic - thanks, Sarah!

Sarah - I did go out for the day and cooked for the time in the recipe. It didn't burn and was absolutely beautiful!

This sounds a very interesting recipe, I intend to try it tomorrow. Do you get a lot of juices from the chicken, if so does anyone have any ideas for making a sauce to accompany the bird?

Yep, after 1 hour on high and 4 on low the chicken fell apart and the next stage was burning. I dread to think what would have happened if I had followed the recipe for baked chicken on this site and gone out for the day!

on the cooking time it says 1 hour on high setting then 8-9 hours on low , can this be done the other way round , as i dont have enough time in the morning , to wait an hour before , putting it on low ?
or can you just leave it in longer ?

Ian - I understand why you're concerned but it really does work without adding liquid. I've also tried the same method with a turkey breast joint as well and that was so good I've decided to do it for Christmas and take the hassle out of Christmas dinner.

just bought a slow cooker thinking I could do this or a roast but all recipes/instructions say the meat/chicken/wotever has to be covered with water or liquid, I do fancy trying this but don't want to blow my recent purchase up:) is this really ok to do?

I couldn't quite believe this would work, but it received rave reviews: the most delicious chicken I've ever had was just one of them. So simple and no worries about people sitting down at an exact time. Will definitely do this again.

I too was dubious about cooking without any added liquid. But I have got say, this was just about the easiest chicken I have ever cooked. Moist, flavourful and just falling off the bone tender. It is a keeper.

I too had doubts about cooking without liquid but it was beautiful. Moist and so tender it just dropped off the bones. Delicious!!

Last year the government advised against washing poultry even the rinsing in cold water as you instruct. Don't you agree with latest health advice

I had my doubts about cooking a whole chicken without any added liquid/stock, but I thought I'd give the "delicious baked chicken" a go as I was intrigued. I have to say that it came out beautifully moist and I'm very impressed! This has opened up a whole world of 'midweek roast chicken after work possibilities', and leaves me plenty of chicken leftovers for sandwiches at work, or as an ingredient for other dishes. I highly recommend it this recipe and will definitely be making it again! (Although I did change the recipe slightly by putting two halves of a lemon inside the chicken).

Preparation time:
Slow Cooker Size 3.5L+
Serves: 4
Cooking time:

This is the easiest baked chicken you can make. Start it in the morning, and it will be perfect at supper time. With fresh, frozen, or tinned vegetables and fresh bread, youíll have a nutritious, easy meal that pleases even picky eaters. Whole chicken is usually very cheap too, so you can feel thrifty as well as accomplished in the kitchen.


  • 2.5 lb (1 kg) whole chicken (or equal weight of chicken pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste (suggested to start with Ĺ teaspoon salt, ľ teaspoon pepper)


  • If you donít have a metal rack that fits in your slow cooker, you can create balls of aluminium foil of about an inch in diameter. Four should hold up your chicken nicely if you place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  • Rinse chicken under cold water, inside and out, then pat dry with paper towels.
  • Mix together paprika, salt, and pepper and evenly season chicken with the mixture.
  • Place chicken on rack or foil balls in slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on High setting for 1 hour. Turn slow cooker to Low setting and cook for approximately 9 hours. The chicken is done when the meat is no longer pink and when the juices are clear.
  • Recipe End
