Spice Rubbed Crock Pot Chicken

This recipe from Everyday Paleo is an easy fix with the crock pot.  It can also be made using chicken pieces and baked.  The spices are great and it is a very versatile entree which can be served with any veggie you have on hand.  This spice rub would be great on a roasted chicken using the ceramic chicken roaster.

1 5-6 lb free range organic chicken – giblets removed, rinsed, and patted dry with paper towels

1 white onion sliced

1 tsp sea salt (optional)

2 tsp paprika

1 tsp cayenne

1 tsp white pepper

1 tsp poultry seasoning

1 tsp garlic powder

Cover the bottom of the crock pot with the sliced onions.  Mix all spices in a small bowl and then rub the spice mixture all over the whole chicken.  Place the spiced chicken on top of the onions in the crock pot, cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours (depending on your crock pot).  No need for any liquid, the chicken will cook in it’s own juices.  Make sure you spoon the onions and a little bit of the juices over the chicken when you serve it.  I served my chicken with our favorite brussel sprouts, steamed for 5 minutes and then sauteed with a little olive oil, dried dill, garlic powder, and pepper.

(You can make this recipe using a fresh cut up chicken.  Coat all pieces with the spices and place them on top of the onions in a oven safe baking dish.  Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees until the chicken is done, no longer pink, and gives easily when pierced with a fork.)
