Easy Slow Cooker Paleo Chicken

It’s Sunday again and in our house that means we don’t leave the house and we do whatever makes us happy. If that means taking a nap on the couch at 1pm or working on that quilt that’s been under construction for the past 10 years, that’s what we do.  Whatever makes us happy.  But more times than not that includes a good slow cooker recipe.

Easy Slow Cooker Paleo Chicken

This recipe adds to my happiness for several reasons.

  • It’s Paleo
  • It’s SUPER easy
  • Using the slow cooker on Sundays makes me feel very “wife-ish”
  • There will be leftovers because it’s just the hubby and I
  • I know exactly what’s in it
  • I have time for a nap if I want
  • I don’t have to worry about burning anything

Recipe type: Paleo
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • **Use organics whenever possible**
  • 1 whole chicken (4 - 6 pounds)
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • 1 cup chopped onion
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl combine all spices
  2. Wash chicken and remove giblets
  3. Place chicken into slow cook and rub spices onto chicken, really rub it in
  4. Top with chopped onion
  5. As the chicken cooks it will release it's own natural juices so there is no need to add any extra liquid
  6. Set slow cooker on low for 5 hours. After 5 hours check temperature of chicken with a meat thermometer. It should be at least 165 degrees. Mine was 170 after 5 hours and the meat fell off the bone
  7. After 3 hours, baste the chicken with the juices that are at the bottom of the slow cooker. (If you aren't home while it's cooking, don't worry because I did not baste mine and it was still fall off the bone tender)

    This looks amazing. Are there any other vegetables that be added along with the onions?
    No rate yet but I cannot wait to make it.

      This recipe is a great base and is delicious as is but you can add whatever veggies you like. I personally don’t eat potatoes or carrots, there are much better veggies out there with more of a nutritional benefit. Oh, brussel sprouts would be insanely good cooking in the juices. Maybe some red, orange or yellow bell peppers too. Let me know what you end up using.
