cooking a whole chicken

Recipe: Amazing Whole Chicken in a Crock-pot

I absolutely love crock-pot dinners!  It’s convenient, easy, & when it’s all said and done there usually is very little clean up.  One of my fav’s is cooking a whole chicken in the crock-pot with carrots and potatoes.  If your looking to cut out processed unhealthy food this is the way to go! This dish is flavorful, juicy and one I’m sure the whole family will enjoy.

Desired seasonings: Black pepper, salt, paprika, onion powder, thyme etc.
1 chopped onion
1 bag of small carrots
1 bag of small red potatoes
1 large chicken


Combine the dried spices in a small bowl.
Place the chopped onion, carrots and the potatoes in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Remove any giblets from the chicken and then rub the spice mixture all over.
Put prepared chicken on top of the onions, carrots, and potatoes in the slow cooker, cover it, and turn it on to high. (*I added a cup of chicken broth)
Cook for 4 – 5 hours on high (for a 3 or 4 pound chicken) or until the chicken is tender.
