Falling-off-the-bone Crockpot Chicken (AIP)

There are a few core recipes that will become your friends on the AIP.  This is one of them.  It is always good to have a protein source (in this case, shredded chicken) handy for making soups, salads, or just “as is” on your plate.  This recipe continues into the recipe for The Richest Bone Broth (AIP).  And all praise to the crockpot!  Set it and forget it!

Let’s begin….



Falling-off-the-bone Crockpot Chicken     By Wendi’s AIP Kitchen – wendisaipkitchen.com

  • 1 t. ground sage
  • 1 t. sea salt
  • 1 t. onion powder
  • 1 t. dried thyme
  • 1/2 t. garlic powder
  • 1/4 t. black pepper (omit for elimination phase of AIP)
  • 1 large yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 4-lb. organic chicken

In a small bowl, mix the first six ingredients to make a rub.  Place chopped onion in the bottom of the crockpot.  Unwrap the chicken.  Take out the bag of parts and discard, or place in the refrigerator to use in broth later, if desired.  Rinse the chicken in cool water, and bend back the wings.  Holding the chicken in one hand, sprinkle the front side with the rub.  Place the chicken upside-down, or breast-side down in the crockpot, if it fits that way.  Continue sprinkling the spice rub on the back side, the legs and in the cavity.  If some rub gets in the pot, that’s fine.  Close up the crockpot and cook the chicken on high for six hours.  (Note: There is no need for water.  The chicken and onions make their own liquid.)  After six hours, check to see that the chicken is, indeed, falling off the bone.  Serve in sections, or simply de-bone for another use.  Continue on to The Richest Bone Broth (AIP)…  See my video tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5biY5JvakA
