Spice Rub Slow-Cooked Chicken

I’ve been cleaning through my freezer and trying to clean out some food.  I came across a whole chicken and knew it was time to make a chicken in the crockpot again.  While some of my favorite ways to do that don’t involve any prep whatsoever, I was looking through Everyday Paleo and found this spice-rubbed chicken.  It gets a little on the spicy side, but also added some really great flavor to the chicken, which I then used in a number of other dishes.

Spice Rub Slow-Cooked Chicken

1 large white onion, sliced
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp poultry seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
5-6 lb whole chicken

Cover the bottom of the slow cooker with the sliced onions.  Mix all spices in a small bowl.  Using your hands, rub the spice mixture all over the whole chicken.

Place the spiced chicken on top of the onions, breast side down, in the slow cooker, cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or until the chicken is falling off the bone.
