Chicken ~ Whole Chicken Crockpot

Default Whole Chicken Crock Pot Recipe


4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion power
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large roasting chicken
1 cup chopped onions


1. Combine the spices in a small bowl
2. Remove giblets from chicken and clean chicken
3. Rub spice mixture on the chicken (under the skin, since we’re going to take it off, anyway)
4. Place in a large resealable bag and refridgerate overnight. (Can skip if you’re in a hurry)
5. When you’re ready to cook, put the chopped onions in the bottom of the crock pot
6. Add the chicken, no liquid needed, it’ll make its own juices
7. Cook on low 4-8 hours

(Notes: I also got this recipe off A couple of notes from the amazing reviews — you can put it under the broiler to brown it when done, shallots and lemons in the cavity were common to commenters, and everybody loved the chicken! I’m trying it on Sunday)
