  • Mix the spices, oil and salt in a small cup.
  • Oil the inside of the slow cooker, place the whole chicken inside.
  • Pat the chicken dry with kitchen paper. This allows the spice mixture to stick to the chicken.
  • Spoon the spice mixture all over the whole chicken.
  • Turn the slow cooker on to LOW for 6-8 hours of HIGH for 4-6 hours. All slow cookers vary, so please check the instructions that come with your slow cooker.
  • Always test the chicken at its thickest part to confirm it is thoroughly cooked. I push a skewer into the breast and drumstick, to make sure the liquid that drains off is clear.
