Total Time 6 hours 25 minutes


  • 1 whole chicken
  • 2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Mix mustard and honey in a small bowl
  • Place 1/4 cup of water into slow cooker bowl
  • Place chicken into bowl also
  • Spoon over honey mustard mixture
  • Cook on low for 6 hours
  • Baste twice during cooking to get great colour
  • Baste once again and place in oven on 180c for 20 minutes to crisp skin (optional)


  • Water is added to the insert so that the honey doesn't burn while waiting for juices to be released from the chicken. Using wholegrain mustard gives those little bursts of flavour while the honey adds just a little sweetness. Serve with baked vegetables and steamed greens. This was cooked in 5.5L cookwell.

  1. I didn’t have enough honey but it still came out lovely. Keen to try with the right amount. Will keep this recipe on our regular menu! Partner approves.

  2. Made this tonight for the first time and it was fantastic! I didn’t roast it for 20 mins at the end as I didn’t need to.

  3. I chose this recipe because my husband was doing his first solo slow cooker meal and it looked easy. It was! And it was delicious!!
