Crockpot Whole Chicken

With all the harvesting, canning ,and freezing I have been doing only simple recipes are gracing our table.

Who am I kidding? I love simple recipes, and while I do attempt more difficult recipes at times, my heart lies with the easy and simple.

This one came from recipezaar . I took it out of the crock pot and placed it under the oven broiler to brown a bit after 4 hours. Hubby and I don’t eat the skin but the broiler makes it look a bit more appetizing

Crock Pot Whole Chicken

* 4 teaspoons salt
* 2 teaspoons paprika
* 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 1 teaspoon onion powder
* 1 teaspoon thyme
* 1 teaspoon white pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
* 1 large roasting chicken (with pop-up
timer if possible)
* 1 cup onion — chopped


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.

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 according to size.

Note: a pop-up timer recommend in the chicken because some crock pots cook faster/slower than others

    I didn’t even know you could cook a chicken in a crock pot! Obviously you can cause that’s one good-looking chicken.

    Yes Susan mine is one of those big oval crocks. Not sure if you could do it in a smaller round one though.

    Thanks southernofficechairs,

    I have my learners permit but not license for motorcycle. We will have to get a smaller bike too because the one we have is to large for me to handle. I have turned it over trying.

    To start this first belly fat burning dumbbell exercise,
    hold a pair of light dumbbells with palms facing down and get down into the pushup
    position. Take a chest press for example; the main muscle worked is the chest, secondary maybe the triceps.

    Dumbbell Squat: Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder width apart.

    This 5-quart model will help you make casseroles, soup, and roasts easily.
    That special graduate in your life will think of you
    every time they use that slow cooker in their college dorm.
    Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either
    directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with
    the same product.

    To keep the wood piece from moving when you are using a miter gauge, cut to shape and glue a piece of
    sandpaper to the face of the miter gauge. Despite its steel roll
    cage base, the Dewalt DW745 table saw is known for its light weight and portability.
    However, along with their usefulness comes the potential for injury.


  12. best gas grill

    The grid can usually be mounted at different heights.
    You can also ensure your vegetables are done at precisely the same time as
    your steaks. Another big difference between a portable grill and a regular one is that the portable grill uses a small propane cylinder rather than a conventional five-gallon propane tank.
