  • 1.5 kg chicken medium
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 mls double strength chicken stock
  • 2 tbsps cornflour


  1. Peel the onion and 1/4 it. Peel the carrots if using and lay them whole in the bottom of the slow cooker with the onion. Place your chicken on top.

  2. Cook on High for 4-5 hours. Check the internal temperature with a meat thermometer is 75 Celcius/165 Fahrenheit at the thickest part of the thigh but not touching bone.

  3. Remove Chicken and set aside to rest. I cover the chicken with a sheet of silver foil. Decant all the juices to a saucepan and remove as much of the fat that is sitting on top as you can easily do. Add the 250 mls of chicken stock and bring to a gentle bubble.

  4. Tip in the cornflour slurry and mix through thoroughly. I use a whisk. Simmer for a couple of minutes.

  5. Carve the chicken as required and serve with the gravy.
