Cook. Slow cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 7-8 hours or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
⭐️Serve. Carefully remove chicken and carrots from the slow cooker. Slice chicken and serve.
If your chicken is frozen, defrost it in the refrigerator prior to cooking. Keep in mind the defrost process can take 24-48 hours depending on the size of the bird. If you need to defrost quickly, submerge the chicken in cold water (change the water every 30 minutes until defrosted). Do not leave the chicken at room temperature to defrost.
Cook the whole chicken breast side up in the slow cooker.
The most ideal way to make sure your chicken is ready to be served is by using a meat thermometer. When temping, insert an instant-read thermometer horizontally from the side so it penetrates the thickest part of the chicken.
