    Super easy!  

    Take an unfrozen whole chicken (not huge, but one that will sit comfortably in your slow cooker).  Season it good with S&P or other spice blends.  If I want a goes-with-everything flavor, I just use S&P and maybe some Mrs. Dash original. 

    If I want something decadent, I'll sometimes put springs of thyme and pats of butter under the skin and sprinkle with kosher salt.

    Place in the slower cooker, set it for about 8-10 hours on low. 

    I love, love, love the Honey Jalapeno rotisserie chicken at HEB, so I recreated it at home.  I made a marinade of lime juice, honey, garlic, chopped fresh jalapenos, and S&P.  In the same way one would brine a bird, I did that with the marinade.

    Then I made a little platform of aluminum foil balls on the bottom of my slow cooker.  I placed the chicken on top and let if cook away. Delicioso!!

     Butting in: what exactly do you use the foil for?

    Butting out!

  • I butted in to find out more about this slow cooker chicken, and I'm glad I did!  Thanks for the tips, MrsAJL.

    While I'm being a buttinski, I noticed that your signature lists the Turkey Trot.  I walked the Turkey Trot last year, and thought you might want to know it's 5 miles, not 5K.

    The foil list the chicken off the bottom surface of the cooker to better allow the eat to crisp the skin.
