Easy Peasy Slow Cooker Chicken

Easy Peasy Slow Cooker Chicken – Slow Cooker Crispy Skin Chicken Made in the oven with a simple dry rub. An almost hands off recipe, so put it on and pop your feet up.

Roast Chicken dinners are a favourite at this time of year in our home. The kids and the adults (basically me and hubby) chomp away enthusiastically and funnily enough the kids are silent..for once. Bliss!

I have been meaning to get slow cooker, instant pot and meal prep recipes up for some time now. The latter has been requested a few times and I will be putting something together soon. 

About this chicken..A chicken cooked in a slow cooker can be ready to eat in around 5 hours but to get it really crispy? You need to cook it just a little longer (ok 3 hours) and you also need to prop it up onto some rolled up balls of thick foil before you begin to cook it. This is all after cleaning and marinading of course. You then lay the chicken on top of the foil and cook. Simple as that.

By the way, I have kept the marinade really simple for this chicken because the point of the recipe is exactly that..simplicity.
