  1. Insert half of the chopped onion, celery, and carrot into the chicken cavity. Truss the chicken.
  2. Scrub the outside of the chicken with the chicken seasoning.
  3. In a large slow cooker, mix the chicken broth with maple syrup and apple cider vinegar. Add the baby potatoes, then place the chicken on top of the potatoes. Add the remaining chopped onion, celery, and carrot as well as the squash cubes and the fresh thyme and bay leaf around the chicken.
  4. Cover and cook for 7 to 8 hours on low (setting), until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 82 °C (180 °F) on a cooking thermometer inserted into the meaty part of one of the thighs (without touching the bone).
  5. Next, if you wish, set the oven to broil.
  6. Gently place the chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil. Continue cooking in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown.
