Tips for Slow Cooker Roast Chicken

  • If using the chicken in other recipes, after removing for the slow cooker, allow the chicken to cool completely before handling. 
  • Slow cooker roast chicken will NOT get you crispy chicken skin. For crispy skin, move the chicken from the slow cooker to a metal 9×13 pan and place under the broiler until the chicken skin is the desired crispness.
