The easiest chicken recipe. Ever.

For my whole married life I was afraid of cooking a whole chicken. Call me crazy, but something about the pop up timer and not drying it out or undercooking it freaked me out. That was until I discovered you can cook a whole chicken in a crock pot and found an amazing deal on chickens at Whole Foods. Score.
  1. In a small bowl, combine the spices.
  2. Remove any giblets from chicken and clean chicken.
  3. Rub spice mixture onto the chicken.
  4. Place in resealable plastic bag and refrigerate overnight. (I usually skip this step because I'm always in a hurry).
  5. When ready to cook, put chopped onion/carrots in bottom of crock pot.
  6. Add chicken. No liquid is needed, the chicken will make it's own juices.
  7. Cook on low 4-8 hours.
*And if you want to make your meal even easier stuff the bird with seasoned cubes of bread for stuffing. You won't be sorry. The stuffing that emerges at the end is well worth the 5 minutes of stuffing.

The best part. The crock pot does the cooking for you and you get an amazing meal at the end of it all with about 10 minutes worth of work. Hows that for slaving away in the kitchen?
