This chicken was so tender that I could not even lift it out of the crock. Can you see where I tried and the chicken totally fell apart? I’m serious, I finally lifted it out and all that was left was a pile of bones. The bones were no longer in the carcass shape either.

The chicken is delicious and you could add whatever spices or sauce suitsย  your fancy. I reaaaaaaaally wanted a rotisserie, but this recipe is seriously just as good. Cross my heart.

I only want to remind you of two things,
1. Defrost your whole chicken the day before. It will take at least all day in the fridge to defrost. You can buy a fresh one if you are too nervous that you wont defrost it all the way.
2. Remove the giblets. Don’t be scared. Just reach in there and pull it out. You don’t want those baked in there.

If you do not have fresh garlic or thyme, don’t run to the store, just use dry thyme and garlic powder. Probably 1 Teaspoon powder.

Serves: 1 Whole Chicken
 
An easy, no fuss way to enjoy a flavorful whole roasted chicken that turns out as juicy as rotisserie by only using a crockpot
Ingredients
  • 1 Whole 4-6 lb chicken, giblets removed
  • ½ Teaspoon Fresh Black Pepper
  • ½ Teaspoon Fresh Thyme (or 1 Ts Dried)
  • 1 Clove of Garlic, minced
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 2 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
Instructions
  1. Take the whole chicken and rinse it inside and out with water. Pat dry and set aside.
  2. Mix together all of the seasonings in a small dish.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
