Slow Cooker Whole Chicken #Paleo #GlutenFree

Slow Cooker Whole Chicken is a great dinner recipe! I put this in my crockpot the morning of our Savvy Saturday Conference and had been gone all day spending my time with all of you wonderful readers and followers who came to the conference.  Afterwards I headed home and came through the door to such a savory aroma of this chicken cooking. It smelled amazing and I was ready to eat!

Slow Cooker Chicken

It was so simple to put together that morning before I headed out the door and I made some stuffing and a veggie to go with it. Be sure to try this to make your chicken the next time because it came out so moist and tender! I will use this method from now on instead of the oven! This is a must pin!  This recipe is gluten free and Paleo too!
