Ingredients

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, I also made sure to rinse out the inside cavity a bit. 

  4. Pat dry your whole chicken with a paper towel and place the chicken on a plate.

  5. Season to taste with your seasoning salt, paprika, salt, and pepper.

  6. Shake a bit over a plate and then place the whole chicken on the foil balls.

  7. Be sure to place the chicken on the bottom side down meaning the breast side up.

  8. Shake a bit of minced onion onto the chicken, my minced garlic did not stay on when I did it on the plate so I did more in the crockpot. 

  9. Cook on low for 6-8 hours
  10. Ensure chicken is cooked to 165 degrees for food safety with a Food Thermometer to ensure its properly cooked.
