Crockpot Roast Chicken

On Wednesday, I took a frozen chicken out of the freezer with the intent to make an oven roasted chicken.  However, I has forgotten that Colin had gymnastics at 6:30 so dinner had to be on the table at 5:30.  Because I would only have 90 minutes after getting the kids home from school , I decided to switch from oven to crockpot.  There are many recipes out there.  The simplest I found was from  There is no liquid and came together in less than 15 minutes :).  

You just need to cut up onions and lay them in the bottom of the crockpot.  Then you mix the spices together in a small bowl.  Then you remove the giblets from a chicken, rinse the bird inside snd out with cool water then pat dry.  When the chicken is dry, rub the spice mixture all over it and get a little under the skin of the breast.  Your chicken will look like it has a bad spray tan at this point ;-)
Place it in top of the onions and cover the crockpot.  Cook the chicken on high for 4-5 hours.  Let rest for 20 minutes before carving.
