The cool weather of fall is creeping in slowly and with it comes the desire for slow cooked meals once again. Next week I'm going back to work part time after 3 years at home and the slow cooker will be in use quite a bit in the near future.
My favorite lazy meal is to put a whole chicken in the slow cooker rubbed in seasoning mix like Southern spice chicken rub or lemon pepper chicken rub. I decided to try a new one so here we go....
Poultry Seasoning Mix (makes enough to coat 1-2 chickens)
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon sage
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon cumin
Rub mixture onto the chicken then place in the slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours.
When you get home you'll have a fully cooked delicious chicken waiting for you and it will smell so good that you can totally get away with serving it with boiled potatoes and microwaved peas like I did and STILL have your husband call you the greatest wife in the world. That's the power of a slow cooked seasoned chicken....
