  • 1 Whole Chicken
  • Foil
  • Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • Minced Onion
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Non-Stick Spray


  1. Spray your crock pot 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 inards and wash off with water
  4. Pat dry the chicken and place on a plate
  5. Season to taste with the lemon pepper seasoning, salt, and pepper
  6. Shake a bit over plate and then place on the foil balls be sure to place the chicken in 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 crock pot
  8. Cook on high for 4-4 ½ hours
  9. Ensure chicken is cooked to 165 degrees for food safety with a Food Thermometer to ensure its properly cooked.
