    I love using my crockpot and love this recipe for chicken. I like to peel and cut the onion in quarters and stuff in the cavity. For our taste I reduce the salt to 2 tsp. and also cut the white and cayenne peppers to 1/4 tsp. and the black pepper to 1/8 tsp. The mix still has plenty of flavor. The low and slow cook makes an incredibly tender and moist chicken and enough tasty broth for dipping. Delicious!! Oh … I like to rub some of the spice and herb mix under the skin too.

    Do you take the bag off the chicken or does it go into the crock pot bag and all?

    Made this with a "lazy" version of the rub (creole seasoning and thyme mixture). Very good. I would have never known you could roast a whole chicken this easily. Five forks! :)

    Sorry!!!! I made this tonight and I wanted to give it a 5. It was awesome. used the extra juice to make gravy, used the extra gravy to make chicken pot pie and used the rest to make soup. BUT I am so having problems with this site when I clicked on the forks it stuck on 2 and when I tried to move it to the five it tells me I already rated it a 2 which I DID NOT...

    Really easy, really juicy, really tasty. That's an awesome dry rub you've got there. I was pretty amazed to see exactly how many juices came out of this thing in the pot!

    This was unbelievably amazing!! I have an old smaller crockpot and the chicken barely squeezed in there. What I got was juicy, moist chicken with lots of juices to make gravy.
