I just got mine for Xmas. I was DYING to use it but had to wait for the chicken to defrost. I ran out the next morning and got the veggies, just so I'd have them on hand. AMAZING!!! I'll NEVER cook with my oven again! INCREDIBLE CHICKEN!!!
Marinade chicken in spices and water for 24 hours if you have the time (I did, because I was dying to use my crock-pot).
Add all remaining ingredients to pot.
Top with whole chicken, including spice water.
*At last hour of cooking, if you have time, you'll want to add more of your favorite chicken spices such as sage, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, poultry seasoning, etc on top of the chicken. Just sprinkle them on top.
Cook on high for 1 hour, turn down to low for 7 hours.
Or cook on low for about 8-9 hours, check for doneness after 8 hours.
