I did not refrigerate the chicken but followed the recipe as written, otherwise. I put the
chicken on a square of cheese cloth and tied the corners together and in the cp it went.
When the chicken was done, it was fall-off-the-bone tender, but I lifted it
out quite neatly and laid it on a sheet pan to remove the cheese cloth.
It was delicious and so was the broth.

Ok I rubbed the whole chicken with EVOO then rubbed the spices on under the skin and cavity of chicken omitting the white pepper because I didnt have any. put it in the fridge over night and put it in the crock pot around 11am until 5pm. This was so moist and flavorful everyone loved it! I used water , cornstarch and the chicken juices to make a rockin' gravy let me tell ya this recipe is a total keeper! thanks for sharing Kathy :)

Very tender and tasty! My husband kept complimenting the flavor. It's a keeper. I put onions on the bottom of the crock pot as recommended. I would recommend that you cut the salt down though. Almost too salty.

Not bad, but the white meat turned out dry rather than tender. Very easy. I found it a bit spicy, but would probably not reduce the spice because I did like it.

perfect! We rubbed the herbs on the chicken right before cooking in the crockpot and it came out flavorful and tender. We put carrots in the crockpot as well, and they were so yummy (with the taste of the herbs) that we will add more veggies next time!

Loved this. I am not a huge fan of baked whole chicken because the flavor never seems to saturate the chicken. Not the case with this one. It was very tasty. I did add carrots to the bottom and a few extra seasonings like rosemary and oregano. My crockpot is slow, and I let it cook for 11 hrs. Will definitely make again. Thanks

This was so great, fell apart tender. Will use less pepper next time, maybe my pepper was too fresh, was just too much for us. Also only used 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Actually the gravy was the spicy part, not the chicken itself. DH does not like spicy foods. He did love this chicken. The flavors from the spices carry well with the chicken. I also did not use any salt to decrease sodium content and it tasted great. Thanks for the recipe, I probably will use this as the new "roasted" chicken!

This is a delicious dish but also a real gut buster. The sodium (@ over 2500 mg) and over 15 g of saturated fat are over the top. I suppose it is because of the skin on the chicken. I plan on doing a repeat without skin and less salt - hope the seasonings will carry the dish.

Wow! It works! I don't know why I just didn't think it was possible. It is so tender and so easy you don't have to slave over dinner. It is nice to cheat lol I also put in the oven for a little bit just because I like cripy skin. Great recipe thank you so much!!!
