I've always shied away from putting an entire chicken in a crock pot. I know the boys like their whole chickens to be crispy and roasted. But I had a chicken to make and we were going to be at baseball tryouts all day. So I bit the bullet and found a recipe.
What a success it was! And for how easy it was, I'm certainly going to use this one again.
The white pepper can be found with the spices. It's got a more delicate pepper taste, but black pepper can replace it.
I got the recipe from Recipezzar.com.
Whole Chicken in a Crock Pot
4 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 large roasting chicken
1 cup onion, chopped
In a small bowl, combine the spices. Remove any giblets from chicken and clean chicken.
Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
