    Main Dish

  • Cusine



1 Whole 4-6 lb chicken

1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Black Pepper

1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Thyme

1 Clove of Garlic

1 Teaspoon Onion Powder

2 Teaspoon Paprika

2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt


Take the whole chicken and rinse it inside and out with water. Pat dry and set aside. Mix together all of the seasonings in a small dish. Using your fingers, gently lift the skin over the breasts by sliding your fingers up towards the neck to separate the skin and meat. Rub the spice mixture all over the chicken, over the skin and underneath right onto the breast meat. Place the chicken in a crock pot on low for 8 hours. Once the chicken is done, remove from the crock pot and serve with potatoes, and veggies. There is plenty of liquid if you wish to make a gravy. Just heat the liquid in a pot and mix a little cornstarch and cold water. Once the liquid is boiling add a little to the cornstarch so it heats it up a bit, and slowly add it to the liquid, whisking vigorously. Season as needed.
