Today’s Crock Pot post is from The Frugal Chicks.
So everyone makes new year’s resolutions, or as I call them goals, every new year. I chose to go Paleo this past January. I did not stick with it, but I am planning to go back to it because I felt so much better. I have MS, and this diet makes you feel so much better – just going gluten free is not the easiest thing in the world. I discovered this recipe during my paleo days.
Not only is it delish and versatile, but it is healthy too! I found this recipe in my Everyday Paleo cookbook by Sarah Fragoso. I have it on my nook, which makes cooking quite easy! My favorite way to eat this dish is on portabella mushrooms as sandwiches. Hope you love it as much as I do!!
Crock Pot Spice Rub Chicken
- 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.
- You can eat it with veggies, as a taco, or I love it on portabella mushrooms as a sandwich.
