Whole Chicken Slow or Pressure Pot

Butterflied chicken

I have a pressure pot so I mix it all as shown and put it in the pot for 45 minutes!  Then I take it out and place it under a broiler for about 7 minutes to brown.  If you don’t have an instant pot you can get one here at this link:

Otherwise a slow cooker is just fine.


– 4 tsp salt
– 1 tsp cayenne pepper
– 2 tsp paprika
– 1 tsp thyme
– 1 tsp white pepper
– 1/2 tsp black pepper
– 3 Tbsp. minced garlic
– 2.5 lb chicken
– 4 cloves of garlic
– half a lemon
– quarter of an onion
– 2 medium carrots
– 3 ribs of celery
– 1 medium onion

Combine salt, cayenne pepper, paprika, thyme, white pepper, black pepper and garlic. Rub the mix all over the chicken. Stuff the chicken cavity with garlic cloves, half a lemon and quarter of an onion.

Place the chopped carrots, celery, onion into the bottom of your slow cooker. Place your seasoned chicken over the chopped vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours (or high for 4 hours).

Remove chicken and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with vegetables.
