Let's get something straight - even if I were not doing the Whole30, I would still make this for dinner.
In fact it is going in our normal rotation (if there is such a thing around here!).
AND - I gave you substitutes at the bottom.
I got this recipe from NomNomPaleo - check out the original recipe here.
(She goes into WAY more detail than I do & has great follow along pictures.)
I have a feeling I will be using many of the recipes NomNom post. :o)
Oh and if you didn't know, I'm doing the Whole30. 
I have a separate area on my blog for daily updates- all month long. 
I am on Day 9 today without 1 single slip up! 
Head on over and cheer me on if you feel so inclined.
Moving on.
I have a Hamilton Beach programmable crockpot (I get nothing from mentioning that - just sayin'!) so I can set it and forget about it. It has a probe so it cooks to the temperature I want - then stops cooking and turns itself to warm.
It is also big enough to fit 2 whole 5 pound chickens in, so I doubled this recipe and there wasn't even a sliver of chicken left.
The recipe:
4-5 pound chicken
2 TBL of ghee (clarified butter which I have to special order)
2 onions, chopped into large pieces
4 green onions with stems, chopped
6 cloves of garlic coarsely chopped
2 tsp tomato paste
1/2 cup chicken stock
Poultry Magic (or your favorite seasoning)
Kosher salt
Fresh ground pepper
I can't believe I didn't know about ghee before the Whole30. I.LOVE.THIS.STUFF.
-Melt ghee in a large skillet and sauté onions, garlic & green onions & saute for 2-3 minutes
-Add tomato paste & sauté another 8-10 minutes
-Toss in poultry magic - I used about 2 TBL
-Deglaze the pan with chicken stock
-Remove from heat
-Put chicken in crockpot and pour sautéed  mixture into crockpot
-Cook for 4-6 hours our until you thermometer reads 165 degrees
-Once it is done take it out of the crockpot and let it rest while you make the gravy!
-De-fat sauce in crockpot by spooning as much out as possible
-Blend with an immersion blender until totally smooth, like gravy
-Add salt and pepper to taste

Watch your family eat it all up!  :o)

*****If you want to make this and you are not on the Whole30 and you don't happen to have ghee in your house, just use butter.  :o) 
Also you can subsitute the chicken broth for wine.
