What You Need

2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried onion
1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon chili flakes
1 roasting chicken
Olive oil

What To Do

In a bowl add all the spices together

Mix.

Drizzle olive oil over the chicken – rub the oil on the chicken – make sure the whole chicken has a light coat of oil

Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.

Cook on high for 4 -5 hours – I highly suggest using a meat thermometer to tell that it is done.

Enjoy
I had to take the final picture shot in the crock pot BECAUSE the chicken was falling off the bones.

I just finished the chicken part of this recipe and I’m now working on the broth part of it!!! If the broth’s as fabulous tasting as the chicken, then I’m officially throwing out my old recipe in lieu of this one!!!!! I’ve never had a chicken so tender that when I poked it with a wooden spoon, it fell into 4 pieces. Thanks Budget Savvy Diva!!!

I made this tonight for the first time and it was really good. Mine was done in about 2 1/2 hours on HIGH setting, 180 degrees on a meat thermometer. This is the only way I will roast a whole chicken from now on, besides it doesn’t heat up the house or make a big mess in my oven, YAY!!

Been trying to find different chicken recipes since I have a freezer full of whole birds… So off to Pinterest I went. I tried a bunch and out of all of them all my family loved this one the most. It’s amazingly tender… Good flavor. I’ll be adding it to the recipes I’m handing the daughter in laws. Nice and easy and yummy too. Cheers

Easily my favorite crock pot chicken recipe. I use the meat for sandwiches, soups and casseroles.

Is it necessary to cook it on high? I would prefer to cook over low so I can put it on in the morning and have it ready for an early dinner.
