Foolproof Rotisserie Chicken (in a Slow Cooker)

The result is way better than store-bought deli chicken, and half the price—even though I purchased an organic chicken. Gotta love a Farmer’s Market!

1 whole organic chicken, about 3 ½ pounds

2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

1 large white onion, peeled and quartered, about 1 cup
4 medium garlic cloves, peeled and sliced, about 1 tablespoon

In a small bowl, combine the salt, dried herbs, seasoning and pepper. Rub the chicken all over with the blend. Peel and quarter a whole onion, and peel and slice 4 cloves fresh garlic. Stuff the cavity of the chicken with the onion and garlic. Lay the chicken breast side down into the slow cooker. DO NOT ADD WATER! Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 8 hours.

Serve the chicken with your favorite sides such as au gratin potatoes and green beans, or quinoa and fresh peas. Make two chickens and serve one for supper.  Save the other for easy lunch and work week dinners.
