  • Rinse the chicken and make sure innards are removed.
  • Put the butter or coconut oil in the bottom of the Crock-Pot and turn it on low.
  • Once butter melts, put chicken in Crock-Pot (putting breast-down will make it cook faster).
  • Sprinkle with the spices.
  • Put the lid on and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until completely cooked.


Don't throw out the bones! See below for instructions on how to make broth.
