When you think about cooking a whole chicken, sometimes the task can seem daunting. But, it shouldn’t be that way. I have compiled a list of 30 whole chicken recipes to make things easier. This list has everything from roast chicken to whole chicken recipes you can make in the Instant Pot. In addition, these recipes are easy, delicious, and surprisingly healthy.

When making a whole chicken recipe, more often than not the method used is roasting the chicken.

These are some easy yet impressive whole chicken recipes that your whole family is sure to love!

Slow Cooker Whole Chicken Recipes

A slow cooker is every busy mom’s best friend. As a result, I’ve gathered just a few whole chicken recipes that you can make in the slow cooker. These chickens look so amazing and tender and perfect for weeknight dinners. Making a chicken in the slow cooker guarantees you time to get other things done while also having a juicy and delicious chicken with minimal effort. I’m a huge fan of slow cooker meals and being able to cook an entire chicken just makes them that much better.
