Easy Roasted Chicken In Slow Cooker Tastes Like Heaven

Every once in a while, I will treat my family to a rotisserie chicken from our favorite grocery store. They do know how to cook a chicken! But, those times are few and far between because for one, those little chickens aren’t cheap. And, I love to cook my own meals for my family, which is why I am very excited about this roasted chicken in the slow cooker recipe. I skipped rotisserie chicken night and made this instead and they loved it. They actually prefer this to those expensive rotisserie chickens.

If you love the taste of rotisserie chicken, you are definitely going to love this recipe. And, it only takes about 10 minutes to get it ready. Then it cooks in your slow cooker for about eight hours until it’s ready. Just a regular five pound chicken will feed your entire family and if you needed to do more, you could just adjust the recipe. Or, add a couple of chickens to your slow cooker if you need less – you can have one for dinner and the other to pull apart for weekly lunch meals. Add it to this cast iron skillet chicken pot pie!

If you love quick and easy meals that are also healthy and wholesome, this is a great recipe to try. I’m telling you, my family just couldn’t get enough of this one. We didn’t have any leftovers! It’s so simple and so quick to put together and then you can focus on other things for the rest of the day. Come dinner time, it’s all ready for you. I love meals like that.
