Through the Paleo diet/lifestyle and the Whole30 my family, friends and I are becoming healthier! We are getting to our healthy weights, moving more, sleeping better and have better energy. We are suffering fewer mild medical issues and are just overall feeling better every day!

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen these days. We cook and enjoy a lot of great food that's both tasty and healthy. I hope you'll find some recipes here that you'll enjoy!

Easiest Chicken Crockpot Recipe EVEH!

*this post has been edited*

This is the easiest recipe ever.

What you need:
a whole chicken (3.5-5.5lbs)
seasonings of your choice
veggies (onions, carrots, celery) 

Thaw the chicken if it's frozen, then clean it as your normally would (take the liver and neck out of the inside and rinse it under cool water).  Sprinkle the seasonings of your choice all over it on all sides liberally (on the inside too if you want).

Cut up your veggies (I like mine in big chunks) and put them in first.
Then just put it in the crockpot (breast up) like this:
If your chicken doesn't fit after you've put the veggies in, just
cut the chicken into quarters (using a kitchen shears) cut down
the center of the rib cage and remove the thigh/leg parts.
That's it.  I'm serious.  Turn the crockpot on low for 4-5 hours.  Don't add any liquid.  It will make it's own.  When you take the chicken out, it will be falling apart and moist and there will be juice like this left in the crockpot:
I know this picture looks kinda gross... sorry.
The "juice" left in the pot can be strained (to get the veggie chunks out) and used for stock later!
