Cailin’s Tips on Cooking Roasts in Slow Cookers
Its always best to prop a roast on something, either potatoes cut in half, balls of foil, lemons halved (great if doing lamb or something you want to taste of lemon) or an upturned saucer. I often use balls of foil.
All these recipes have varying cooking times depending on if the meat is frozen, and what sort of slow cooker you have. My general rule of thumb is because chicken cooks fast, I always put it in frozen to prevent it from going stringy, and I always leave it on low if doing it in the morning. Other meats can either go on auto until you think its cooked then low, or low all day if starting early and you can put anything in there frozen.
Also don’t forget leftover roast meat is great to make soups/stews the next day in the slow cooker, for example leftover seasoned chook makes fantastic cream of chicken soup or chicken and sweet corn soup. Or you can add meat to a tomato base sauce and serve over pasta… the limit is your imagination. One last quick and easy tip for a yummy roast chicken is to buy a seasoned chicken or a plain chicken and cover with french onion soup mix. A simple, easy and delicious meal, guaranteed.

Terri’s Easy Chicken and Corn Soup Recipe– Posted by Cailin
- 1 whole bbq chicken (skin off, boned, and chopped into small pieces)
- 2 cans of creamed corn
- 2 litres chicken stock
You can make a quantity to suit. Place in slow cooker – I would put it on high for 1 hour then turn down to low for the rest of the time (if I was home) otherwise just on low. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Slow Cooker Roast Chicken Recipe– Posted by beej22
Easy as pie…wash whole chicken and pat dry. Sprinkle one sachet of french onion soup mix over the chicken and ‘rub in’. Place chicken in slow cooker – you can place sliced onions and garlic in the bottom of the cooker if you like. Cook on lowest setting all day.
This generates so much of it’s own juices…it comes halfway up the chicken! And is really moist and delish. The juices make a yummy gravy.
Slow Cooker Braised Chicken with Onions, Potatoes & Peas Recipe– Posted by Cailin
- 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves
- 2 tablespoons paprika – Hungarian
- 1 & 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 6 large onions – thinly sliced
- 1 tsp chicken bouillon powder
- 12 small red potatoes – unpeeled and halved
- 1 10-ounce package frozen green peas
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Rinse the chicken under cold water and pat dry. Season with the paprika, salt and pepper. Place all vegetables on the bottom of the slow cooker, potatoes first, and then put the meat on top. Season with the bouillon powder. Cover and cook until vegetables are tender and the chicken is done. Cook 7 to 10 hours on low or 3 to 4 hours on high.
Slow Cooker Chicken & Corn Soup Recipe– Posted by Cailin
(you can make a quantity to suit)
- 1 whole bbq chicken (skin off, boned, and chopped into small pieces, or leftover slow cooker chicken)
- 2 cans of creamed corn (less if you prefer)
- 2 litres chicken stock (same again, less if you prefer)
Place in crock pot – I would put it on high for 1 hour then turn down to low for the rest of the time (if I was home) otherwise just on low. Add salt and pepper to taste.
When I’ve made this I generally put it on at about 2pm on low, by dinnertime (around 6 pm) its ready, so you could put it on high for a couple of hours instead if you wanted it quickly. Otherwise if you put it on early in the morning it would make a great weekend lunchtime warmer!
This recipe is great as an starter for an asian meal (great if you want to impress), a nice stir fry, some steamed rice and some honey soy chicken wings in the oven. Everyone will think you’ve slaved for hours. Just be sure to server you soup with some spring onion/shallots to garnish.
Chloe’s Kick Ass Slow Cooker Chicken Soup Recipe– Posted by Chloe
I made a kick-arse chicken soup yesterday that you could feed an army on. Here’s my recipe to use with 1 whole chicken (with as much fat and skin removed as possible and cut down the middle butterfly style – browning optional).
- 1 tin diced tomatoes
- 1 lemon
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- 1 or 2 potatoes
- 1 or 2 carrots
- 1 diced onion
- Vegetable stock
- Chilli, salt, pepper, herbs
- 1 tin chick peas
- 1 tin beans (kidney or mixed)
Put a whole chicken in the slow cooker with a tin of tomatoes, potato (chopped into quarters), carrot, a tin of tomatoes, onion, about half a container of the campbell’s vege stock (you could use the chicken one), the juice from one lemon, 3 cloves of garlic crushed, salt, pepper, herbs (I used some basil and some dried mixed herbs), chilli and water. Put it on auto all day. An hour before its time to eat it get a pair of tongs and break the chicken up and pick out every bone you can find (this is a bit time consuming). Every time you come across a piece of vege crush it in the tongs to mush it up. After you’ve taken out all the bones add the drained and washed beans and chick peas and put the lid back on until dinner time. Serve with bread.
Slow Cooker Chicken Cattiatore Recipe- Posted by BellyBelly

- 1 onion – diced
- 2 cloves of garlic
- Kalmata olives (optional – around a cup but I don’t use them)
- Juice of one lemon
- Tomato paste
- Parsley – chopped

Chuck everything into the slow cooker and mix well. Serve over rice or potatoes and enjoy!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe– Posted by Christy
- 6 cups chicken stock
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 tbsp ancho chilli’s chopped (I just use jalepeno in Australia because I can find it)
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 clove garlic minced
- Salt & pepper
- EITHER 1 roast chook taken apart & thrown in OR 800gm chopped chicken meat
- 1 cup corn kernels
- 1 avocado (chopped with lemon juice on it)
- 1 handful coriander chopped
- 6 corn tortillas (or 3 flour tortillas)
Put the stock, garlic, cumin, tomatos, bay leaves and salt and pepper in your slow cooker. Lightly colour your chicken with onion in fry pan until just sealed and pop in slow cooker, OR just pull apart your roast chicken and put in with onion. I put this in for 1 hour on high and then add corn and put on low for 2-4 hours depending on chicken meat.
10 minutes before serving, slice tortillas into 2cm strips and shallow fry in fry pan in olive oil or light canola oil and drain on kitchen paper.
To serve, put soup in bowl throw in 2 spoons of chopped avocado, tortilla strips and sprinkle with coriander. You ‘could’ put a dollop of sour cream over the top if you feel like it. Serve with warmed tortillas and butter, or you could serve with a small salad topped with capsicum, corn, black olives & guacamole. (thats for dinner tonight)
This is a very low fat slow cooker meal, just the tortilla’s frying would be the issue… so if you are on a diet you could bake the tortilla’s until they are crispy I suppose, or if you are lazy chuck in some tortilla chips (preferably corn tortilla).

Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Recipe
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 4 skinless chicken breasts
- 1 1/3 cups crushed tomatoes
- 2 large cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 tsp sugar
- Pinch of celery seeds (I couldn’t find any so used a few shakes of celery salt instead)
- 2 tbsp dry red wine
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over med-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until lightly browned. Combine the chicken and the next 5 ingredients in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours (the recipe says 6-8 but I find chicken breasts only need about 4) Combine the cheeses in a small bowl and sprinkle them over the chicken. Cook until the cheeses are melted, about 15 mins.
I assume from this recipe they cut the chicken up but I left them breasts whole and they were fine, but you could cut them up and you could probably leave the browning and just chuck it all in.
