Country Chicken (Slow Cooker)


  • 1 5-7 lb chicken
  • 16 oz package carrots, peeling is optional if they are “young” carrots
  • 3 medium parsnips, peeled and cut into thick strips
  • 2 ribs celery cut in chunks
  • 1 onion, thickly sliced
  • 5-6 medium potatoes, cut in half (again, peeling optional)


  • ½ tbs paprika
  • 1½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp thyme


Mix rub ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

Place carrots and parsnips in the bottom of a 5-7 quart slow cooker.

Rub chicken all over with prepared rub; place on top of the carrots and parsnips.

Distribute remaining veggies around the sides of the chicken.

Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, high 3-5 hours. TIMES ARE APPROXIMATE. ALWAYS CHECK AT MINIMUM TIME FOR DONENESS.


I strongly suggest using a 6 or 7 quart slow cooker. If you only have a 5 quart, use a smaller (3-4 lb) chicken
