Roasted Chicken...Easy Peasy
NOTICE THE CHICKEN IS COOKED UPSIDE DOWN
This is the seasoning I had in my cabinet
Okay, I am really feeling like a CROCKSTAR today. I was a little nervous about cooking a whole chicken in the crockpot but I thought I would give it a whirl. I made up my own recipe and it was amazing...A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! So easy too.
Little Man-asked for more...this never happens...he must not have realized he was eating protein.
Princess-said "Mommie this is really good...seriously"
The Captain-after this afternoon's cheese dip (see below) and this chicken I believe he mumbled something about him not being worthy!
1 whole frying chicken (I used an organic one from Whole Foods)
3 apples (can be older or bruised)
1 seasoning package (see pic above)
Cut the apples in half and place the flat part on the bottom of the crockpot. Essentially you are building a base so the chicken does not sit in its own grease as it cooks.
Place the chicken on top (breasts on the bottom)
make seasoning according to directions and brush on. (You could also use Italian dressing)
Put in the crockpot on low for 3-4 hours or until the juices run clear.
Amazing fall off the bone chicken!
I served with baked potato, peas and homemeade carmel apple cobbler...YUMMO!
