Crockpot Chicken


This chicken falls apart like melted butter to the touch. Juicy, full of flavor all the things a good chicken should be. The chicken will make its own liquid and cook in it leaving every bite bursting with real flavor. Pair this dish up with some chicken gravy which you can make with the leftover stock. Add a bit more flour until you get the consistency you want for your gravy. I served this meal with some rice.

1 medium whole chicken
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 onion, diced

1. Place onions on bottom of crockpot. Add chicken breast side up. Sprinkle salt, paprika, thyme, pepper and garlic on top of chicken. Cover with lid and cook on low for 6-7 hours.

    I’ve been wanting to get a crockpot for a long time. I only have a really small one, which I’ve never used. This recipe might just be the excuse I’ve been wanting for to finally get one!! I just have one question… and please forgive my ignorance: Will the chicken need to be placed in the broiler to get that great brown color your picture shows? or will it turn out like that in the crockpot by itself? :/

    I have a medium sized Hamilton Beach Crockpot and I LOVE it. I have been cooking more it in bc its so easy and gives me so much more time and way less clean up.

    And no you do not have to put it in the oven it just does that to itself. I add the spices over the top after I place the chicken in it. Never take your lid off bc you loose a lot of heat. It will just cook itself and come out amazing like that. An easy to meal is not using the oven and this lol.

    Alaykum Salam sis so many people here have asked me and I have looked for 3 years now and never saw one :( My mil also loved it but never even heard of them or saw them ever. I brought mine with me from the states. I saw a thing by tefal here that would be a good substitute I think you can cook meat, veggies, rice in it.

    Thanks for your kind comment it really means a lot to me :)

    Hi Noor, I made this chicken last night for dinner and it was soooo good! I normally add stock or some kind of liquid to the pot and of course check it every hour by opening the lid, but I followed your instructions exactly and it came out so moist and flavorful. Shokran…I made it with the Bukhara roz and added potatoes to the rice too. Delicious and filling dinner…thanks again. P.S my husband is loving that I have become addicted to your blog! He’s getting some great food.
