I've used this recipe for years so I kinda assumed everyone else knew about it too.
Sunday evening my mom and step-dad came over to pick up M (shes at their house until this evening) and stayed for dinner. It wasn't planned at all but we had plenty so it worked out. My mom has raved about the chicken to everyone who will listen and keeps mentioning it to me. A girl she works with wants the recipe so I looked it up online.....its so easy we don't even use a recipe now. Notice how I am saying WE now? I'm not big on playing with the whole chicken but The Husband doesn't mind. He is the official rub-er of the ordeal. He has even been known to act like its a puppet and make the kids roll laughing. Really though its so easy to throw it in, even frozen, and not worry about it for the rest of the day. Oh and cheap! A whole chicken is only like $3-$4.
Here it is:
1 whole roasting chicken
olive oil flavored cooking spray (we have used olive oil, vegetable oil, whatever we have)
seasoning salt, to taste
Make 4 or 5 loose balls of aluminum foil and place in bottom of crock pot.
Clean chicken inside and out. Spray with olive oil spray.
Sprinkle generously inside and out with seasoned salt.
Put chicken back-side down in crock pot (on top of foil balls).
Cook on high 4-6 hours
