Default Crockpot Crumpled Foil "Rotisserie" Chicken

Crockpot Crumpled Foil "Rotisserie" Chicken

I used 4 1/2 lb. frying chicken seasoned with NoSalt inside and out. Rubbed skin with olive oil. Sprinkled liberally all over the skin Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper Seasoning. Cooked in crockpot on high for 5 hours.

1. place a rack or several balls of crumpled aluminum foil in the bottom of your crock pot.
2. season & salt & pepper the cavity of large chicken and stuff with celery (leaves and all) and an onion or two. Discard after cooking - the celery and onion are just for flavoring.
3. Spray with butter flavored PAM
4. place chicken, breast side up, on top of rack or foil.
5. season with your favorite spices. You may have to adjust the spices to taste after you try this. They seem to "wash off" in the cooking process, so don't skimp.
6. cover and cook on high 4-6 hours

The rack keeps the chicken from just stewing in it's own fat, and it tastes (really) like one of those rotisserie chickens you can buy at the store, but it is better for you because you control what goes on it. No sugars and carmel flavorings to make it look good. I discard the skin.
