I realize last New Meal Monday was chicken….so I hesitate to tell you of another wonderful chicken dish; however this one is so incredibly good, so incredibly easy—I will never cook a whole chicken again the same! Have your attention?? Huh, Huh…I know, it’s chicken, and it’s Monday….but I PROMISE this doesn’t disappoint and you will be hailed as “QUEEN MOTHER OF JUICY CHICKEN”—we’ll even make you a crown ;)

So here is what you need…

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 (mine was about 5.5 lbs)

1 cup chopped onion

Make friends with your chicken, rinse him, take out the sack of giblets, and place on paper towels. Pat dry.
Combine all spices. And rub all over chicken. On both sides. I use a rubber glove, that is just how I roll when I need to touch raw chicken.
Cut up the onion into slices. Place in a crock pot.
Placed the rubbed down chicken on top of the onions. Cover and set to low and cook for 5 hours. Don’t open, don’t check—just trust your crock pot and let it cook!
You will have the most juicy, tasty, succulent chicken you have ever had!
Seriously the easiest recipe I have ever cooked!

Be inspired to be clever :)

    I made this recipe tonight, but the chicken fell off the bone and the parts couldn't be served whole the way it looks in your photo. It was more of a stew. I cooked it for 5 hours on low. Should I have taken it out sooner?

  7. I make basically the same recipe, but instead of the sliced onion I stick a whole apple into the cavity of the chicken. My recipe says to cook on low for 8 hours and it is definitely falling apart. I think I’ll try the onion next time and cook it for 5 hours. Just found your blog. Thanks!
