Crock Pot Roast Chicken
Recently, a local grocery store had whole chickens on a really good sale. I have never made a whole chicken before, so I thought I'd try it while the prices were so low that I wouldn't feel bad if I ruined it. I figured I could do it in my crockpot, since that's pretty much fool proof.
Start with a whole chicken. Be sure to pull the bag of giblets out from inside the chicken. This really grossed me out, which made my husband laugh, so he took a picture.
Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
Assemble the seasonings: salt, pepper, parsley, onion powder, Tony's, paprika, and garlic powder. I didn't really measure any of them out. I just poured them into a bowl and shook them together.
Sprinkle the spice mixture over the chicken and rub them in. Coat both sides of the chicken and even sprinkle some on the inside.
Peel a small yellow onion. Cut it in half, then into quaters. Lay the onion pieces in the bottom of the crock pot.
Place the chicken on top of the onions. Cook on low for 5 hours.
When it gets done, you will have the juciest, most flavorful chicken perfect for eating on its own or in any recipe that calls for pre-cooked chicken! So delicious =)
