Crockpot whole chicken

Instead of making a trip to Costco to get a roasted chicken, I thought I would try and do it myself.   I was a bit skeptical and nervous, but it turned out wonderfully.  The spices that are rubbed onto the chicken, help add some flavor to the the skin as it crisps.

Ingredients:
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. fine grain salt
1 whole chicken
1 onion, quartered
2 tsp. olive oil

Directions:
Prep the chicken by removing the "goodies" from inside the cavity.  Rinse the chicken and pat dry.
Stuff the onion in the cavity and tie the drumsticks together with twine.
Place chicken in crockpot. *

In a bowl, blend the spices together.  Mix well.
Drizzle olive oil over chicken and rub into skin.
Take spices and cover chicken entirely.
Cover crockpot with lid and set on low for 4-5 hours.**



*If you don't like your chicken dripping in drippings, take some aluminum foil and make 4-5 balls and put in the bottom of your crockpot then place your chicken on top of them.

**Cooking times may vary depending on your crock.  Be sure your chicken is thoroughly cooked before serving.

Stay Hungry my friend!
