  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon creole seasoning **
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion coarsely chopped


  1. Combine creole seasoning and olive oil and rub all over chicken. Lift skin over breast and rub seasoning on there as well, if desired. Put any remaining seasoning in the chicken cavity.
  2. Place onion in the cavity, placing any that doesn't fit in the bottom of the crockpot.
  3. Cook on High for 4-6 hours, depending on the size of your chicken. Juices should run clear and meat thermometer should read 180 degrees.

Recipe Notes

A meat thermometer is the best way to tell if this chicken is done as it will be juicier if you do not overcook it and you don't risk under cooking it.
