  1. Wad three pieces of aluminum foil into 3 to 4 inch balls, and place them in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Rinse the chicken, inside and out, under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towels. Season the chicken with the salt, pepper and paprika, and place in the slow cooker on top of the crumbled aluminum foil.
  3. Set the slow cooker to High for 1 hour, then turn down to Low for about 4 to 5 hours. Add the vegetables and then cook another 4 to 5 hours, or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
