Classic All-purpose Slow Cooker Chicken

4 from 3 reviews

Skip the oven this summer and make slow cooker chicken instead. Perfectly moist chicken that lasts us 4-7 meals without heating up the kitchen.


  • 2 whole chickens
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp coriander


  1. Remove the innards/giblets from the chicken and set aside for chicken stock. Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
  2. Place both chickens inside a large slow cooker and sprinkle all the seasonings on top.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  4. Shred chicken with 2 forks, or with tongs and a fork.


I can fit two chickens in my 6 quart oval slow cooker. If your slow cooker is smaller, use just one chicken and halve the spices.
