9 The Best Whole Chicken in a Crock Pot and a "Healthy" Linky Party

Happy "Healthy" linky party day!! :-) 
Link up with recipes, workouts, success stories, and ideas for staying on track with your New Years resolutions:-) When you link up on Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box, your link is immediately seen on the other hostess' blogs too! :-) It is a wonderful way to discover new blogs and to share great recipes and other healthy ideas! :-) 
Here are the hostesses! :-) 
Meg from Henning Love
Allison from Cupcake Diaries
Whitney from Harvest Home!
I can't wait to see all of your ideas! :-) 

Today, I'm sharing how to make a whole chicken in the slow cooker. This is so easy to prep and a short while later, the chicken is literally falling apart, is full of flavor and is AMAZING! 
One thing that I do is serve chicken for dinner the night that I make it and then freeze the rest for later use! 
Come back tomorrow to see how I make chicken stock with the leftovers! 
The Best Whole Chicken in a Crock Pot
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon cayenne (red) pepper
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 onion
1 large chicken
Combine the dried spices in a small bowl.
Loosely chop the onion and place it in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Remove any giblets from the chicken and then rub the spice mixture all over. You can even put some of the spices inside the cavity and under the skin covering the breasts.
Put prepared chicken on top of the onions in the slow cooker, cover it, and turn it on to high. There is no need to add any liquid.
Cook for 4 – 5 hours (for a 3 or 4 pound chicken) or until the chicken is falling off the bone.
