In an effort to simplify my life a bit, I recently bought one of these big, oval crockpots and have been having great success with it thus far. This past Sunday, however, I discovered something truly wonderful: A whole, frozen chicken can be dumped into it, seasoned with just about anything, ignored all day, and still emerge tasting fabulous!
I was pretty wiped out when I got home from work Sunday morning, but before I went to bed at about 9 or so, I took a chicken out of the freezer, put it in the crockpot, doused it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then sprinkled it liberally with Lawry's Perfect Blend seasoning and rub for chicken & poultry, turned it on low, and went to bed.
When I got up at 4PM, it was perfectly done, so I turned it off until dinnertime and made some brown rice and green beans to go with it. The sauce (minus the fat) left in the bottom of the crockpot made a great addition to the rice, too.
Another tasty version is to douse the chicken with melted butter and lemon juice, and then sprinkle with salt and cinnamon. Like I said, you can put just about anything on it and it'll be good.
