Whole Crockpot Chicken, with easy gravy and mashed cauliflower

This is one of my new favorite recipes, simply because it is so easy. I have made whole chickens in my crockpot many times, and it is always delicious. Add in the extra dimension of pureeing the cooking juices and onions with a bit of coconut flour to make gravy? NEXT LEVEL AWESOME.

The gravy is very flavourful and possibly a bit more thin than what you are used to. I know people use arrowroot, xantham gum, and cornstarch to thicken their gravies but I didn’t want to do that last night and had none of those things on hand.

By the way, this meal was 100% 21 Day Sugar Detox friendly and also really, really delicious and satisfying! Did I mention I’m doing that again? I am! Today is day 2, I am doing it along with the whole group :) so far so good!

We’re having leftovers tonight and I can’t wait. Everyone was asking for the recipe yesterday when I posted a photo of it on facebook so I decided to put this one up for you ASAP! The best part is its pretty much foolproof, and a great make ahead meal that literally takes about 2 minutes in the morning to put together!

Whole Crockpot Chicken, with easy gravy and mashed cauliflower
Recipe Type: Dinner
Cuisine: Paleo
Author: Sam
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 1 whole chicken, giblets and everything removed
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp (dried): marjoram, oregano, thyme, basil, pepper
  • 1 tsp: paprika, salt,
  • dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
Instructions
  1. Place the chopped onion in the bottom of the crockpot.
  2. Combine all the spices in a small bowl. Rub them all over that chicken!
  3. Stick the chicken in the crockpot, put on the lid, and cook on low for 8 hours or until a thermometer reads at least 165 degrees.
  4. Remove chicken from crock pot, and scoop the onions and juices let off by the chicken into a cup to use an immersion blender to blend them. A food processor would also work fine. Blend until the onions are no longer in tact. Add 1 tbsp. coconut flour and pulse again.
  5. Cut chicken and serve with gravy on top!

Also, I just want to mention, mashed cauliflower is pretty great too! I’m just going to quickly breakdown how I made mine, because I wasn’t following a recipe and I didn’t mash mine properly…at all. I’ve hear food processors are good for it – I used an immersion blender haha. BAD IDEA! I don’t recommend it!

Ingredients: 1/2 head of cauliflower, 1 tbsp. bacon grease or other fat, 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Instructions: Steam cauliflower until easily poked into with a fork. Mash in an intelligent way, with the food proccessor or something! NOT an immersion blender in a large bowl. Don’t do it.

This is just 1 of the many delicious meals I have planned for the next 19 days :) Stay tuned! And if you want, check out my youtube channel to see my 21 Day Sugar Detox Vlogs!
