Welcome to the easiest most delicious chicken you will ever make. This is so easy it feels like cheating. And it makes your house smell sooooo good. Delicious, fragrant cheating.
What you'll need:
1 whole chicken (buy the cheapest one you can find, fryers work just as well here as roasters)
4 medium sized onions (peeled and quartered)
Paprika (enough to cover the chicken, maybe a tablespoon or a bit more)
Chili Powder (just a little, maybe 1/4 teaspoon)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
1. Put your quartered onions on the bottom of your slow cooker.
2. Rest your washed whole chicken on top of the onions.
3. Season the chicken with paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper.
4. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 - 6 hours.
THAT'S IT!!!! When it's done it will be falling apart.
The white meat is tender and the dark meat is totally succulent, like a confit. The onions become soft and flavourful and make a great side dish or sauce. I like to serve this with wilted garlic spinach and mashed parsnips or just a light green salad or even with a side of (forgive me) stove top stuffing. I could eat this for days, no kidding. Let me know if you try it, I hope you do!
