This is a recipe I found on Pinterest and it is amazing. I have tried a few recipes off of the site and had some hit and miss results… this one is definitely a hit! I found the recipe here, and to be honest I didn’t change a thing.
- 3 tsp salt
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Clean your chicken and remove giblets and neck. Rub spice mixture all over the chicken, if you have the time you can let the chicken marinate over night but you don’t have to. Dice up1 onion and put at the bottom of the crock pot. Place spiced chicken on top of onions. There is no need to add any liquid. As your chicken slow cooks you will be amazed on how much juice you will end up with.
Slow cook on low for about 8 hrs. You can use a thermometer to check to see if your chicken is done. It should read 180 deg. Or even simpler, wiggle a leg and if it’s loose, it’s done!
This chicken was moist and had amazing flavor! We served it with mashed potatoes and corn 🙂
