Spicy Roast Chicken

  • 1 large whole chicken
  • 3 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper (you can cut this down if you don't care for the "heat")
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. thyme
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Combine all the spices and rub under the skin of the chicken. Rub a bit on the inside too, and any leftover on the skin. If you are making a single chicken, you can roast it in your crockpot; just put it in the crockpot, cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Baked Beans

  • 1 lb. dry navy beans (I've also used black-eye peas or great northern beans)
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3/4 c. ketchup
  • 3/4 c. brown sugar
  • 3/4 - 1 c. water
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. molasses
  • 1 tsp. salt

Soak beans in water overnight in large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer until soft, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain and discard water. Mix together all ingredients in crock pot. Cover and cook on low 10 to 12 hours.

Note: I often soak the beans the day before, cook them and then cook in crock pot overnight.

Note: I sometimes add sliced hot dogs or ham to the mixture. When I do this I reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp.

  • 6 to 9 medium potatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 lb. ham, cut into slices or chunks

  • 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Layer potatoes, ham, onion, and cheese in crockpot. Repeat. Top with cream of mushroom soup. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours until potatoes are tender.
NOTE: Watch your crock pot carefully! Mine will cook this recipe in less than 6 hours on low.
