This was absolutely delicious, flavoursome and tender, and to go out for the day, then home to the aromas is gorgeous! If you did want to crisp it up (as per the pic), you could always put it into a pre-heated oven to 230 for 45 minutes (the time it takes to roast the spuds)!
1 free range chicken - size to suit
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dry thyme
Salt and pepper
Brush chicken with olive oil
Combine the rest of the ingredients and sprinkle over chicken
Put the chicken in the slowcooker and turn to auto - this starts the slowcooking on high then reduces to low, I let it cook for around 7 hours - was perfect!
I also took the juices, of which there was a lot, and made it into a gravy, and have frozen it for use another time - these Pour and Store freezer bags designed for liquids are just genius!
You can also do the same with Roast Pork I discovered!
