Print Pin Rate
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 hours
Servings: 4


  • 1 (~3 lb roast) chicken, 3 lb roaster
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground


  • 16 spear ASPARAGUS
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 3 medium orange
  • 1 none cooking spray

Serve With

  • 4 small rolls, dinner, wheat


  • Line the bottom of a slow cooker with 4 balls of foil just big enough to hold the chicken up so that it does not sit in its juices while cooking.
  • Combine paprika, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, and rub into flesh of chicken. Place chicken on top of foil balls, and cook on high for 4 -4 1/2 hours or until the internal temperature has reached 165°F.
  • Just before chicken has finished cooking, prepare your asparagus: Rinse well and snap off ends. Place on foil or a baking pan and brush with coconut oil. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon and 1 orange onto asparagus, and top with zest of the lemon.
  • Spray a large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add asparagus and cook until crisp-tender (approximately 8 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  • Place chicken on a large platter and allow to sit for 5 minutes before carving. Slice remaining oranges into wedges.
  • Serve chicken with asparagus, dinner rolls, and orange wedges on the side.
