  • 1 (6 lb) whole chicken
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp celery seed

  1. Remove giblets from center of chicken (you may need to use a fork to reach down in or turn upright and let fall through), rinse chicken and drain.

  2. In a small bowl whisk together paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, celery seed, turmeric and salt and pepper to taste (I use 2 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper).

  3. Transfer chicken to a 6 or 7 quart slow cooker, sprinkle all over with spice mixture including the inside cavity.

  4. Cover and cook on high heat for 4 1/2 - 5 hours, until center of thigh registers 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer.

  5. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes then slice and serve warm.
