Easy Crockpot Chicken

We’re getting in the swing of Little League (see what I did there…swing, baseball…), so nights are even more hectic and rushed than normal. The easier the supper, the better our night! But I don’t want to sacrifice the health of my family for easy.

This easy crockpot chicken is a winner all the way around. My daughter likes what she calls ‘slimy chicken’. I know, sounds so gross! But she likes dark meat and my son and I like white meat.  See!  Winner all the way around.

Easy Crockpot Chicken

Ingredients:
1 whole chicken (innards removed, chicken washed and patted dry)
1 yellow onion (sliced)
1 lemon (halved)
2 garlic cloves (peeled and smashed)
7 whole carrots (skinned and chopped into 5 inch sections)
Rub Ingredients:
2 tsp salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper

Directions:
Place carrots and half the onions at the bottom of the crockpot.
Combine dry ingredients to create a rub.
After drying chicken, squeeze half a lemon on the chicken and rub the outside of the chicken with the garlic cloves.
Put the garlic and both halves of the lemon inside the chicken.
Add the remaining onions into the chicken as well.
Now take the dry rub and rub it all over the chicken until the rub is gone.
Place the chicken, breast side down, in the crockpot, on top of the carrots and onions.
Cook on low for about 6 hours.
After 6 hours remove the chicken from the crockpot into a oven safe baking dish.
Set your oven to broil and broil the chicken for about 4-5 minutes, or until the skin in browned and crispy.
Remove from the oven and add the remaining ingredients from the crockpot to the baking dish.
Serve!
