Slow Cooker Whole Chicken Recipe

The Easiest Slow Cooker Crock-Pot Whole Chicken or Turkey Breast

This super easy Crockpot Slow Cooker Whole Chicken or Turkey Breast recipe is the juiciest, most flavorful dish you’ll ever have!


  • one whole chicken thawed
  • medium yellow onion
  • head of garlic
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary or 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried thyme or 5 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp lemon pepper
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Slice yellow onion into fours and halve garlic head, then place on the bottom of the slow cooker. Remove any bags of gizzards, etc. from inside of the chicken.
  • Mix all dried spices in a small bowl and then sprinkle all around the chicken (top, bottom, and sides). Place chicken on top of onion and garlic and throw in any fresh spices. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on top of the chicken, then cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. The vegetables and chicken will create its own juice, but feel free to add a tiny bit of stock if you like.
