This is such a simple recipe. The chicken creates its own juices and the final product is super moist!
1 small onion, optional1 whole chicken (giblets removed)
2 tsp Salt
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper **
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
Chop onion and place in bottom of crock pot, if desired. Place chicken in crock pot, breast-side up. In small bowl mix together dry ingredients. Rub over top of chicken. Cook on HIGH 4-6 hours or LOW 6-8, until chicken tests done. (If using whole cut-up fryer chicken, layer smaller pieces on bottom and breasts on top, adding seasonings to both layers.)
For a Rotisserie effect, I like to then place the chicken under the broiler for 5 minutes. It's gives it just that perfect little crisp. My kids love it!
**Instead of Cayenne Pepper, I opt for Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and omit the black pepper as well. If you have some, give it a try! You could also experiment with Lemon Pepper for a zesty flavor!
