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

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.  Put it in the crockpot, cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

About This Recipe

"This rich, gooey, cake from Southern Living is "baked" in a slow cooker. It's best served warm. Topping with chocolate or vanilla ice cream is a nice touch, but not necessary because the cake is so rich!"

Ingredients

    • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) packages German chocolate cake mix
    • 1 (4 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
    • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1 cup sour cream
    • 1/3 cup butter, melted
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 3 1/4 cups milk, divided
    • 1 (3 1/2 ounce) packages chocolate cook-and-serve pudding mix
    • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
    • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
    • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
    • vanilla ice cream (optional)

Directions

  1. Beat cake mix, next 5 ingredients, and 1 1/4 cups milk at medium speed with an electric mixer 2 minutes, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Pour batter into a lightly greased 4-qt. slow cooker.
  2. Cook remaining 2 cups milk in a heavy nonaluminum saucepan over medium heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or just until bubbles appear (do not boil); remove from heat.
  3. Sprinkle cook-and-serve pudding mix over batter. Slowly pour hot milk over pudding. Cover and cook on LOW 3 1/2 hours.
  4. Meanwhile, heat pecans in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring often, 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant.
  5. Turn off slow cooker. Sprinkle cake with pecans, marshmallows, and chocolate morsels. Let stand 15 minutes or until marshmallows are slightly melted.
  6. Spoon into dessert dishes, and serve with ice cream, if desired.
