How to Slow Roast Chicken with the Best Skin Ever

Slow Roasted Chicken with the Best Skin Ever - CookingWithKimberly.comI discovered this amazing trick unintentionally…

When we were in university, there were times I would use my slow cooker, or prepare our meals before we would go to school in the morning, so they’d be ready by dinnertime when we hit the door.

One day, I decided to put frozen chicken in the oven on the lowest setting we had, and by the time we came home…admittedly, a few hours later than expected…we had a most wonderful surprise and meal! It’s a meal you can set and forget! Enjoy!

Type: Main Dish Recipe
Serve With: Roasted Potatoes
Prep Time: ~ 5 min
Cook Time: ~ 4 hrs
Yield: 1 Chicken Quarter/person, or 2 Thighs/person

The ingredients & instructions are listed below the video for measurements & directions. Please enjoy the video below:



  1. In an appropriate sized baking dish, arrange chicken pieces skin side up after sprinkling with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper. * Tip: Frozen chicken works perfect…In fact, that is exactly what I use.
  2. 2. Put chicken in oven uncovered at 200 degrees for about 4 hrs (or more if you like…it cooks so slowly, it doesn’t really matter). * Tip: Add small, peeled potatoes that have been coated lightly in olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper, or whole carrots the same way. Do not pile them; instead, make sure they are all laid flat.
  3. 3. Take chicken out of oven and cut a piece to the bone to ensure juices run clear. * Tip: If you added vegetables make sure they are tender. * Tip: You will no doubt end up with a lot of wonderful chicken juices in your baking dish. You may use this for gravy or pour over your roasted potatoes…Yum! For a great gravy, substitute with chicken drippings and use this perfect recipe: http://CookingWithKimberly.com/?p=108

    “I found that if you use a glass baking dish it makes it really crispy … delicious!”

    In fact, he emailed me back again:

    “Guess what I’m making for supper tonight … You got it, slow roasted chicken. The house smells delightful.”

    He will love this recipe!!!

    “The skin was very crispy – the kids loved it. They tried to peel it off of what was left-over and eat it before I had a chance to put it in the refrigerator ;-)”

    I’m glad the kids loved it too…

  5. Hi, my chicken looked pale and unappetising, like they’ve been steamed.

    Can I –
    a) add some dark soy sauce for colour?
    b) brush the cooked chicken with some butter and broil for 5 mins?

    • Yes, you can do either one you prefer, Wct… I believe I mentioned that it doesn’t look beautiful, but the skin is such a wonderfully crispy texture.

      Thanks for the comment. Happy Holidays,
