100 Days of Real Food by Lisa Leakeslow cooker chicken

1 tsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried thyme
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ tsp ground black pepper
1 onion, peeled and cut into large pieces
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 lemon, quartered
4 cloves garlic
1 large whole chicken (4 pounds)

*Combine the first 7 ingredients and set aside. Place the onion pieces in the bottom of the slow cooker. Remove the giblets from the chicken, wash well, and stuff it with rosemary, garlic, and lemon wedges (feel free to add whatever herbs you like). Rub the outside of the chicken with the spice mixture. Place the chicken on top of the onion pieces, with the breast-side down. Do not add any liquid. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7 hours, or until the chicken is tender and falling off the bone.

* Serve with steamed veggies, a baked sweet potato and fresh fruit for dessert.
