Whole Chicken in the Crock Pot

whole chicken

Literally falling off the bone!

I always noticed the whole chickens in the grocery store and was almost afraid of them.  I had no clue what to do with them.  It was priced so much cheaper than chicken breasts (which were always my go to), that I thought I would give it a try.  I looked up a recipe from food dot com and I found this one.  It was even better that it was a crock pot recipe.

Here is what you need:

  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large roasting chicken (with pop-up timer if possible)
  • 1 cup chopped onion (optional)
How to make this good lookin’ chicken:
  • In a small bowl, combine the spices.
  • Remove any giblets from chicken and clean chicken.
  • Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
  • Place in resealable plastic bag and refrigerate overnight. (I skipped this because I didn’t think about it until the day of).
  • When ready to cook, put chopped onion in bottom of crock pot.
  • Add chicken. No liquid is needed, the chicken will make it’s own juices.
  • Cook on low 4-8 hours.
