Deserving of a Repeat


This recipe was already blogged long ago, and you can find that original post here. However, this is such a great go-to recipe and is definitely one of our family favorites, so we felt it deserved to be posted again!

Crock Pot Sticky Chicken
4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. white pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 large roasting chicken
1-2 packets turkey or chicken gravy mix


In a small bowl, thoroughly combine all the spices. Remove the giblets from the chicken and clean the cavity well. Pat dry with paper towels. Rub the spice mixture into the chicken, both inside and out, making sure it is evenly distributed and down deep into the skin.

Place the chicken into the slow cooker. Do not add any liquid. As the chicken cooks, it will produce its own juices. Cook on low 8-10 hours and it will be falling off the bone tender. You can brown the chicken in the oven, if desired. The drippings can be used to make gravy which can be served over mashed potatoes or rice.

Source: This is a recipe we have had for years. I believe my mom got it from one of her friends.

Notes: Save the drippings to make a wonderfully spicy gravy. Simply use a turkey or chicken gravy packet (or two) and substitute the drippings for the water called for on the packet and prepare according to package directions. The gravy is fantastic served over the chicken, over mashed potatoes, or over rice.


Above: This is such an affordable and delicious meal.


Above: The gravy is fantastic served over the chicken as well as served over mashed potatoes or rice. My oldest son prefers mashed potatoes while my middle son prefers rice, so this time, we simply made both. We served it with our favorite Quick Yeast Rolls, which you can find the recipe for here, and an easy bagged salad mix.
