How do I get Crispy Chicken if I cook this in a crockpot?

If you want your chicken to get nice and crispy, remove the ceramic insert and place it in the oven on broil until the skins crisps up. Be careful to keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t burn or blacken, however.

Which Crockpot should I use for this recipe?

For this recipe, we recommend a 6-8 quart oval shaped crockpot (slow cooker) such as the one pictured below. While this recipe will certainly work in other styles, this one affords the right amount of space for just the right amount of food.


You can easily find this crockpot on Amazon here if you currently don’t own one and would like to purchase it.

Tips and Tricks

  1. A whole frying chicken is recommended for this recipe. These are usually the best because they are typically small enough to fit into your crockpot / slow cooker but also because they are big enough to feed a family of four (when cooked with vegetables, that is).
  2. Once you remove your chicken from the crockpot when it’s finished, place it in your oven on broil for a few minutes to crisp up the skin, if desired.
  3. If you wish to thicken the honey garlic sauce after cooking everything,  simply drain the juices into a pot and bring to a boil on the stove whisking in some cornstarch.

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4
Calories: 3120 kcal
Author: Mike Johnston
  • 1 whole chicken 3-4 lbs, trussed
  • 4 cups potatoes peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2-4 cups carrots chopped
Honey Garlic Sauce
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup liquid honey
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  1. Place the potatoes into your slow cooker. Arrange the chicken on top, making sure that the lid will still fit. You might have to shift vegetables around to do so.

  2. Place the carrots on top.

  3. Whisk together the sauce ingredients, then pour over the chicken.

  4. Place the lid on top (using tinfoil between to seal if wanted) and cook on low for 8-9 hours or on high for 5-6.

  5. Remove the inner liner and broil the chicken under your oven broiler until it browns up - this gives it that slight " burnt sugar" taste with the honey garlic. Slight. Don't burn it!

Recipe Notes

To thicken the sauce, place on stove and add cornstarch until thickened.
