Best Ever Crockpot Chicken
 

Description
Can't be easier or more delicious! Use a different spice every time to get a different meal.
 
Ingredients
1 whole frozen chicken 
Garlic powder 
Thyme 
Oregano
 
Directions
There is no precise amount of the spices, just mix them together and sprinkle liberally all over chicken. Put chicken in crockpot. Cook on low for 5 hours or so, or on high for 4 or 5 hours. Do not add water. Using a frozen chicken plus the skin provides enough liquid. You can use frozen skinless chicken, but you might have to add a little water for that. I also like to use Cavender's Greek spices and sometimes I use lemon pepper. It is entirely up to you. The juices make awesome gravy as well. I just all a little flour-water mixture to it after I remove the chicken.
