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.
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
