My own Rotisserie Chicken

without the Rotisserie!!!

Love those $5 rotisserie chickens at the grocery store when a plain ol' whole chicken costs $4???  Here's my own...

1.  Thaw and deftrost whole chicken and remove innards.
2.  In a bowl, mix 3t kosher salt, 1t paprika, 1t onion powder, 1/2t pepper, 1/2t cayenne, and 1t Italian seasoning.  Rub the seasoning all over the inside and outside of the chix.
3.  In the cavity, add 3 garlic cloves (or a couple spoonfuls of minced garlic) and a quartered onion.
4.  Plop the whole darn thing in the crock pot, crank it up to high for 4 hours (NO WATER), and let the magic be done by itself!

Now, the flavors aren't exactly like the store, they may need to be tweaked a little.  I'd suggest some chicken boullion or maybe some poultry seasoning, but it was SOOO moist and tender and tasty!  This is a keeper!

I served  it with asparagus and these interesting brown sugar/cinnamon peaches I found at the store!!!  Mmmmmmmmm
