Whole Organic Chicken in a Crock Pot

Hello everyone! Here's what I did as a workout today:

Cardio:
40 minutes on the elliptical machine
 
Weights:
Smith machine squats 3x15
Kettle bell upright row 3x15
Smith machine plie squats 3x15
Dumbbell bicep curls 3x15
Front raise followed by a lateral raise 3x15
 
 
So, I finally decided to cook a whole chicken in my Crock Pot. I was a bit skeptical because it just looked so big and I couldn't imagine that it would cook all the way through. Boy was I wrong! Here's how I set it up:
 
Whole Organic Chicken on the Crock Pot
 
Ingredients:
 
Whole organic chicken, remove the giblets and the skin
1 onion
1-2 cups low sodium organic chicken broth
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp black pepper
 
Directions:
 
1. Combine the spices in a bowl.
 
2. Chop the onion and place it in the bottom of the Crock Pot.
 
3. Remove the giblets and the skin (optional) from the chicken and rub the spices on it.
 
4. Place the whole chicken on top of the onions and pour the chicken broth over the chicken. Cover the pot. Turn the pot on low. Cook the chicken on low for about 9 hours or until the chicken is falling off the bone.
 
And voila.. Enjoy!
 
I couldn't believe how tasty and tender the chicken came out. What was even more shocking was the fact that I didn't need to cook anything when I arrived home from work. I <3 Crock Pot!
 
You can enjoy this meal with a side of seasonal veggies or a salad.

  1. I love using a crock pot! One of my favorite recipes is Pepperoncini Roast beef. You just put a chuck roast, a 16 oz jar of pepperoncinis and a couple cloves of garlic into the crock pot, cook on low 8 hours and your done. The meat literally falls apart.
