This whole chicken is cooked in a slow cooker in the morning to enable the juices to stay in the meat, rather than escape in a conventional oven. I used a 1.5kg chicken to feed 2 adults and 4 children, but you can change the sizes appropriately. The slow cooking process enables the chicken meat to practically fall off the bone when ready and smells delicious. You can also use the juices to make your own gravy!
DO NOT be tempted to take the lid off during the cooking as it will cool the temperature down and will need extra cooking time as a result! :)
Serve with your usual roast potatoes and seasonal veg, for a tasty roast dinner!
