To kick things off I’m sharing this delicious favorite- Little Red Hen Crockpot Chicken aka Paprika Chicken aka Favorite Gravy Chicken. I got this recipe from a friend. Her mom has been making it for year and it’s her “favorite gravy chicken”. After making it I decided Little Red Hen chicken was a more fitting name. Trust me. Once you make it, you’ll understand what I mean.
I know the finished product doesn’t look like anything spectacular but trust me this thing is loaded with flavor. Seriously, delicious. My husband actually said it may be the best chicken he’s ever had. It comes out so tender and the juice almost makes like a gravy that goes great over some rice or mashed potatoes. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Plus, the best part is it is SUPER easy.
Raw, Whole Chicken
1 large onion (I used 2 small)
Paprika (a LOT)
Water or chicken broth
1. Slice the onion and place it in the bottom of the crockpot.
2. Place the whole chicken on top of the sliced onion.
3. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
5. Add the water or chicken broth to the crockpot to the top of the chicken but not covering.
6. Cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 6-8 hours until the chicken is thoroughly cooked. (160 degrees internal temp)
When chicken is done, remove off the bone and serve! Use the juice as a gravy and pour over chicken and rice/potatoes if desired.
That’s it! (Told you it was easy!)
