Spicy Roast Chicken

We love this crockpot roast chicken recipe at our house. It is a little spicy but it really doesn't effect the taste of the chicken. If kids or adults don't like spice they will still love this recipe.

How to Roast a Chicken

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.
