  • 1 whole roasting chicken about 5 lbs
  • 4 medium potatoes wrapped in foil


  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme -or- 1 tbs chopped fresh
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp paprika


  • Rinse chicken and pat dry inside and out.
  • Place the potatoes in the bottom of a 6-7 quart slow cooker
  • Combine all rub ingredients in a small bowl
  • Rub the rub mixture all over the chicken
  • Place chicken on top of potatoes in the slow cooker
  • Cook on high 4-5 hours, low 6-8 hours or until chicken tests done (juices run clear or 175 degrees F on a meat thermometer)
  • NOTE: I cooked this on high as I think it produces a better end product with roasting
