Total Time 260 minutes

Prep Time 20 minutes

Cook Time 240 minutes

Yield 8

Number Of Ingredients 16

1 medium yellow onion (chopped into 1-inch pieces)
4 medium carrots (chopped into 1-inch pieces)
2 medium Yukon gold or red potatoes (chopped into 1-inch pieces)
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
4 pound whole chicken
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ lemon (cut in half)
4-6 sprigs fresh rosemary or fresh thyme
2 tablespoons unsalted butter (optional, for gravy)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (optional, for gravy)

Steps:

  • Place the onion, carrots and potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker. Arrange them in a single layer as much as possible.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the spice rub ingredients: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt and pepper.
  • Place the chicken in a baking dish to catch any excess juices. If there is a bag of innards in the cavity of the chicken, remove it and discard. Drain out any liquid that may be in the cavity.
  • Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Loosen the skin around the breasts. Rub the olive oil and then the spice rub over the chicken, rubbing some of the seasoning under the skin on the breasts if possible.
  • Place the lemon pieces and fresh rosemary or thyme sprigs in the cavity of the chicken. Optional: tie the legs together with kitchen twine.
  • Place the chicken on top of the vegetables in the slow cooker, breast side up. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, until the chicken registers at least 165° F in the thickest part of the leg, not touching the bone. Avoid opening the slow cooker lid during the cook time, as this can cause too much heat to escape the slow cooker.
  • You can serve the chicken and vegetables as is, or use the following steps to brown the chicken and vegetables and make a gravy.
  • Optional: Brown the Chicken and Vegetables under the Broiler
  • Optional: Make gravy with the juices from the slow cooker.

PERFECT ROAST CHICKEN RECIPE | JAMIE OLIVER CHRISTMAS RECIPES
A super-reliable roast chicken recipe to give you juicy meat and crispy skin, every time.
From jamieoliver.com
Total Time 1 hours 25 minutes
Cuisine https://schema.org/LowLactoseDiet, https://schema.org/GlutenFreeDiet
Calories 374 calories per serving
    1. Remove the chicken from the fridge 30 minutes before you want to cook it, to let it come up to room temperature.
    2. Preheat the oven to 240°C/475°F/gas 9.
    3. Wash and roughly chop the vegetables – there’s no need to peel them. Break the garlic bulb into cloves, leaving them unpeeled.
    4. Pile all the veg, garlic and herbs into the middle of a large roasting tray and drizzle with oil.
    5. Drizzle the chicken with oil and season well with sea salt and black pepper, then rub all over the bird. Place the chicken on top of the vegetables.
    6. Carefully prick the lemon all over, using the tip of a sharp knife (if you have a microwave, you could pop the lemon in these for 40 seconds at this point as this will really bring out the flavour). Put the lemon inside the chicken’s cavity, with the bunch of herbs.
    7. Place the tray in the oven, then turn the heat down immediately to 200°C/400°F/gas 6 and cook for 1 hour 20 minutes.
    8. If you’re doing roast potatoes and veggies, this is the time to crack on with them – get them into the oven for the last 45 minutes of cooking.
    9. Baste the chicken halfway through cooking and if the veg look dry, add a splash of water to the tray to stop them from burning.
    10. When the chicken is cooked, take the tray out of the oven and transfer the chicken to a board to rest for 15 minutes or so. Cover it with a layer of tin foil and a tea towel and leave aside while you make your gravy.
    11. To carve your chicken, remove any string and take off the wings (break them up and add to your gravy, along with the veg trivet, for mega flavour). Carefully cut down between the leg and the breast. Cut through the joint and pull the leg off.
    12. Repeat on the other side, then cut each leg between the thigh and the drumstick so you end up with four portions of dark meat. Place these on a serving platter.
    13. You should now have a clear space to carve the rest of your chicken. Angle the knife along the breastbone and carve one side off, then the other.
    14. When you get down to the fussy bits, just use your fingers to pull all the meat off, and turn the chicken over to get all the tasty, juicy bits from underneath. You should be left with a stripped carcass, and a platter full of lovely meat that you can serve with your piping hot gravy and some delicious roast veg.

  • "Preheat oven to 400(F) Degrees and put skillet in oven (empty) to get it nice and hot. Open chicken and pat completely dry in sink. Keeping Chicken in sink... Rub with olive oil all over (makes skin nice and crisp and also gives a place for salt and pepper to stick) Sprinkle salt and pepper Try to tuck wings under the back (or at least pull off of breasts) to leave the breasts totally exposed. Tie legs together to make sure as much skin as possible is browned. When skillet is nice and hot take it out of the oven and turn the oven up to 450 degrees Take chicken from sink and place in hot skillet to brown thighs (which take longer to cook than breasts). Put skillet (full of chicken) in 450 degree oven for about 30 min. or until breasts are about 120 degrees. Turn oven OFF (when breasts register about 120 degrees). Chicken continues to cook in oven (which is obviously still warm) for about another 30 min. In the meantime be cutting up saute ingredients. When internal temp. of breast is about 160(F) degrees then the chicken is done. To best test internal temp. put probe in from front of breast (on the side where the big open hole is) and when thermometer settles on a temp., slowly pull it out and look for the lowest temp. it reads and that is when you know what the temp of the chicken is. Let chicken rest on the carving board (uncovered) another 20 min. before carving to make sure all of the juices redistribute. Take juices/drippings from skillet and pour off about 1 TBL. of the fat off (into sink or somewhere to discard) Put skillet back on the heated stove (didn't say what temp.) Saute 1 shallot (onion) chopped into small pieces, 2 garlic cloves and 2 tsp. minced Thyme just until they soften a little bit. Add 2 tsp. Dijon mustard and about 1 cup of low sodium chicken broth then bring it up to a simmer and let it reduce down and thicken until it measures about 3/4 of a cup. Take off the heat Add 2 TBL. unsalted butter and slowly whisk and let it melt into the sauce. Add 2 tsp. of Sherry vinegar and swirl in. Done!
