Ingredients

Method

  1. Step 1

    Rinse chicken (including cavity) under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towel. Using your fingers, gently lift skin away from breast meat on each side to form 2 pockets.

  2. Step 2

    Combine butter, dip, basil and garlic in a bowl. Gently push butter mixture under chicken skin, being careful not to split the skin.

  3. Step 3

    Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add chicken, breast side down. Cook, turning, for 10 minutes, or until golden. Place a wire rack in the bowl of a 5 litre slow-cooker. Place chicken on wire rack, breast side up. Season with salt and pepper. Cover. Turn slow-cooker on low. Cook for 4 hours or until chicken is tender and cooked through.

  4. Step 4

    Serve chicken with vegetables.
