Whole Slow Cooker Chicken with Kale- Paleo

IMG_8007So, I got a bunch of kale in my csa basket this week, and I already have a shelf full of kale chips, so I decided to throw it in my slow cooker with a whole chicken!  Here’s what I did:


  • 1 whole chicken (mine was ~3.8 lbs)
  • 1 bunch of kale, thick stems removed and coarsley chopped
  • 1 large onion, quartered
  • 1/2-1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • sea salt
  • black pepper

Generously salt and pepper the chicken and place in slow cooker.  Place the rest of the ingredients on top of the chicken.  cover and cook on high for ~6 hours!
