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.
