Honey mustard roast chicken 4 0 5 4
  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs 20 mins
  • 5 mins

    6 hrs 20 mins

    6 hrs 25 mins

  • Yields: 4-6 servings


1 whole chicken

2 tablespoons wholegrain mustard

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup water


1Mix mustard and honey in a small bowl

2Place 1/4 cup of water into slow cooker bowl

3Place chicken into bowl also

4Spoon over honey mustard mixture

5Cook on low for 6 hours

6Baste twice during cooking to get great colour

7Baste once again and place in oven on 180c for 20 minutes to crisp skin (optional)


1Water 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.

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!!

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.
