Course Main Course
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 10 minutes


  • 4-6 pound chicken
  • 1 head garlic {cut in half}
  • 1/2 cup water {or chicken broth}
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tsp Paprika


  1. Prep chicken by removing anything from the cavity. Stuff the halved head of garlic into the empty cavity. Combine the steak seasoning and paprika, rub over the entire surface of the chicken. To prep the slow cooker, I like to add a slow cooker liner {I find them by the Ziploc bags at the grocery store} because it helps with clean up. Then I put 6 balls of foil into the bottom of the slow cooker with ½ cup of water {or chicken broth}. Put the whole chicken into the slow cooker directly onto the foil, making sure that the foil is keeping the chicken from touching the bottom of the cooker. Put lid on and cook on low for 6-8 hours or 4-6 hours on high {depending on size of chicken}. When the chicken is finished, the legs will easily pull from the carcass and it will read 165 degrees on a thermometer. Remove and carve or pull apart and serve.

Recipe Notes

  • Add a lemon cut in half with the garlic for extra flavor.
