Ingredients

  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • Foil
  • Season All
  • Paprika
  • Minced Onion
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • NonStick Spray

Instructions

  1. Spray your crockpot with the nonstick spray, I personally prefer my 8 quart Crock Pot when I make the whole chicken
  2. Make at least four foil balls depending on how big your chicken is
  3. Remove the chicken guts and wash off with water
  4. Pat dry the chicken and place on a plate
  5. Season to taste with the seasoning salt, paprika, salt, and pepper
  6. Shake a bit over a plate and then place on the foil balls be sure to place the chicken on bottom side down (aka breast side up)
  7. Shake a bit of minced onion on the chicken, mine fell off when I did it on the plate so I ended up doing it in the crockpot
  8. Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  9. Ensure chicken is cooked to 165 degrees for food safety with a Food Thermometer to ensure its properly cooked.
