Crock Pot Roasted Chicken

Pictured here with (optional) Italian herbs, to taste, in addition to salt/pepper listed below.

It really doesn’t get much easier than this! Throw a few ingredients in the crock pot in the morning, and enjoy a delicious dinner! And PLEASE stop buying those wrinkly old roasted chickens from the deli. Eeeeewwww!

(For more great recipes and all of the grocery shopping tips you need to ensure that you select the most additive-free versions of every ingredient you need to make over 150 natural recipes, check out my book “Eating Additive-Free“!)

1 whole chicken (look for “natural” versions with no broth or solutions)
1 onion, sliced
1 head/bulb garlic, cut in half so cloves are cut in half
Sea salt and pepper, to taste

Place 3/4 of the onion slices in bottom of crock pot.

Remove chicken innards (if any) and rinse the chicken inside and out (also remove neck if there is one, and save it for making broth if you’d like).

Place remaining onion slices and all of the garlic (with skin is fine) into the chicken cavity.

Place the chicken, breast side down, in the crock pot on top of the onions. Sprinkle chicken with salt/pepper. You don’t need to add any water, but if you prefer to, go ahead and dump a couple of inches in the bottom of the crock pot.

Cover and cook on low until internal temperature reaches at least 165 degrees. My crock pot cooks it in about 5 hours, but cooking times will vary. Serve with a potato or rice dish and some yummy veggies and/or salad. Yummy and super easy!!!
