- 1 (3.5-4.5lb) chicken
- 2 stalks celery, cut into 2” pieces
- 1 onion, cut into 1–2” pieces
- 2 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Place onion and celery on the bottom of your slow cooker. Remove and discard any giblets or neck from your chicken. In a small bowl, combine salt, paprika, pepper, thyme, and garlic powder. Rub spice mixture over chicken. Place chicken on top of the onion and celery.
- Cover and cook chicken on high 5-6 hours or until very tender.
*You can prepare the chicken the night before and store it in the refrigerator. Then, all you need to do is turn on the slow-cooker the next day.
