1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 large roasting chicken
1 large onion, quartered
Mix all the spices including salt, paprika, cayenne pepper, thyme, pepper and garlic, together in a small bowl.
Wash the chicken well and pat dry.
Place chicken in crockpot and coat the chicken thoroughly with the
spice mixture both inside and out. Place the onions in the
cavity of chicken. Do not add any liquid. Cover and cook on
low 6-8 hours.
1/3 Cup olive oil
2 Teaspoons dry mustard
Juice of one lemon
one lemon cut in slices
Wash and dry roast chicken. Place in crock pot. In small bowl mix olive oil, mustard and lemon juice. Blend together and pour over roast chicken. Add sliced lemons inside the chicken cavity and around the edges.
A whole chicken is super easy to cook. It needs very little prep work. Wash the chicken, pat dry and place in a baking dish if you are using the oven or the crockpot if you have one big enough. You can season with salt and pepper or the spice mix above and let it cook.
Depending on the size of your chicken, you will need to cook the chicken around 1 hour in the oven. Read the package directions for exact time and use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
