|the crockpot roasted chicken, it was so very delicious!|
the recipe and inspiration comes from busy mommy and is pinned to my recipe must do's board on pinterest. the lovely emily of busy mommy has a rub for inside and outside the chicken to make it like a bought rotisserie one. sounded good as i love purchasing cooked chooks because they are such an easy dinner on busy days :)
the rub has garlic, dried onion, paprika, cayenne, salt, pepper, and these are made into a paste with water. i put the chicken rub all around the insides and outsides, turned the crockpot on high and walked away for 3 hours ... then i came back to the most amazing smell, honestly the smell was so good i started salivating!
|the rub ingredients plus i added a little peri peri seasoning ;)|
|rubbed and ready to cook ... sorry jenny, more poor food photos!|
|another terrible photo but the smell was so good, we couldn't wait to taste it so it was the only one i got!|
outcome: i will never cook another chook in the oven, this is way too easy and doesn't make a mess in my oven with splatters! the taste was divine and the meat was beautifully moist and actually falling off the carcass ... so good, the whole family loved it. i'm going to make one again this week as it was that yummy i wanted leftovers for sammies but this one didn't survive to see the fridge ;)
the biggest thanks to emily of busy mommy, you have saved me from cleaning my oven from a chicken roast and given me another perfect dinner go-to for busy nights .. truly awesome, try it yourselves!
