Spray the crock pot with cookiing spray, put the chicken in there and about 12 drops of hot sauce.  Let it cook all day.  The hot sauce doesn't make it "hot" it gives it a rotisserie cooked taste.

I always brine mine... look up Alton brown recipe for Brining. Then right before I cook it I tale butter, garlic, parsley and sea salt, mix it together, slide my hand between the chicken and the skin all over, smear that concoction under the skin then bake it. Its amazingly delish.

I put a spicy rub on it and roast it in the crockpot.  We love it that way!

  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper

I usually bake it with different types of seasonings.  I may use a southwestern rub or lemon pepper.  I also have a rustic herb seasoning that is good on poultry.

I love doing this.  We eat what we can that night and I use the leftovers the next night for chicken noodle soup...that my girls LOVE!

When I quoted you, I didn't even notice that was you.  How have you been?  I haven't seen you around lately.

I mix softened butter with salt, pepper, lemon pepper, garlic powder, crushed rosemary, and a pinch of chili powder.

Loosen the skin over the breasts by sliding your fingers between the meat and the skin, careful not to rip the skin.

Take some of the butter and put it under the skin on both sides. Rub it all around.

Make sure the outside is dry. Rub the rest of the butter mixture all over the chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Cut up a lemon and an apple. Sprinkle the inside cavity with plenty of salt and pepper. Cram the lemon and apple up there too. Truss it if you wanna, I do it to mine.

Throw that sucker in the oven. Baste it with the pan drippings every now and again until done. If its not nicely browned by now, throw the oven on broil until it is.

And let it rest for at least 10 minutes before carving!
