I found this pin and thought it was worth a try. Instead of making the rub myself, I just used a packaged rub, which I got on sale which made me very happy. I like to say 'which'.
This packaged rub is a 'bag and season' sort of thing... since I cooked the chicken in the crockpot, I had the bag leftover. So I made up a game called 'watch mommy walk around with an unused cooking bag, unsure of what she should do with it'. I don't like to brag, but I totally won.
I rubbed the chicken with the seasoning... I gave that bird the massage of its life.
I sprayed the crockpot with some non-stick cooking spray, then I plopped the whole bird into the crockpot.
I put the lid on the crockpot and set it on low. After about 6 hours, the internal temperature of the chicken said it was done and so did my husband who was hungry and impatient.
This was pretty good... the skin wasn't crispy, which did make me sad. I loves some crispy skin. But since it was in a crockpot, I shouldn't have expected it. It was really moist. And yummy. I ate more than I should have. And it was so simple. Give it a try!
