Crock Pot Whole Chicken

This the easiest crock pot chicken ever! Not only does this chicken taste just like a rotisserie chicken but it is the entire chicken cooked in the crock pot. Yes, the whole chicken!

Crock Pot Chicken:

1 whole chicken, thawed (any size that will fit in your crock pot)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
olive oil

Mix together in a small bowl the above spices. Set aside.

Roll several pieces of aluminum foil in small balls and place in the bottom of the slow cooker. (I used 4 balls.)

Rinse chicken and rub with olive oil. Rub the spice mixture all over chicken. (I put some inside the cavity and also under the skin covering the breasts.)

Lay chicken on aluminum foil balls in slow cooker, breast-side down.  Aluminum foil should prevent chicken from actually touching the bottom of the slow cooker.

Cook on high in crock pot for 5 hours.
