Ok, I’ve always been skeptical about making a whole chicken in a crock pot. I think it’s because I LOVE roasting them …but, today, I decided to give it a go. It’s super easy and it’s freaking good. Tender, juicy and perfectly flavorful. Enjoy!!
- 1 whole chicken, 4-5 lbs (I get the two pack organic from Costco); rinsed and patted dry, take out giblets
- 1 onion, chopped and placed in bottom of crock pot
Season/dry rub of choice:
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp salt/pepper
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
Mix the rub together well, rub all over chicken, dump some in cavity.
Once you rub-a-dub-dub the chicken, placed breast side down in the crock pot, on top of the onions. Put on high for 4.5 hours. Viola, you are done.
