  3. Roll up balls of foil and place in the bottom of the slow cooker with 2 thick slices of onion. Place the chicken on foil, breast side up, so it is slightly lifted off the bottom of the slow cooker. (Use onion and carrot chunks instead if you prefer).

  4. Cover and cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours or on High (165 degrees F) for 4 to 5 hours.

  5. Remove the chicken and place it on a small pan. Broil for 3 to 4 minutes to crisp skin (optional). Rest for 10 minutes before slicing.


  1. Remove the foil and onion from the slow cooker and turn onto High. If required, add the broth to create about 2 cups of liquid.

  2. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch and water to create a slurry.

  3. Whisk about ⅔ of the cornstarch mixture into the drippings or broth and cook on High. Depending on the amount of liquid, you may need to add more of the cornstarch slurry to reach the desired consistency.

  4. Let cook at least 5 minutes before serving.

  5. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
