Slow Cooker Roast Chicken

I can’t remember ever cooking a chicken in the slow cooker… maybe once many moons ago! I made my own little spice blend yesterday to coat the chicken. I hear most people lay there chicken on the veggies… I used a trivet and put the veggies underneath. This post will have to be a work in progress as I didn’t take any after pics…. I know wow right. With all the drooling going on it got pushed to the side! Man of the house was asking what I was doing packing up leftovers stating that he wasn’t finished yet! Anyway without any further ado.. here is my blend. TIP: Always make just enough, fresh is best and it doesn’t keep well like store bought with those crap anti-caking agents in them 😉

Roast Chicken Spice Blend:

2 teas smoked paprika
1 teas onion powder
1 teas garlic powder
1/2 teas ground cumin
1/2 teas ground nutmeg
1/2 teas celery seeds
1/2 teas of dried parsley
1/2 teas cracked himalayan salt

ps.. a whole lemon in the center of the chicken always goes down well but in this house I am only allowed to put lemon in my drinks haha. Next time I won’t forget the after pics I promise! Until then, let me know if you try this! Comment what your favourite roast chicken blend is… would love to hear all about it 😉 Also this was a small chicken so the cooking times will vary!
