I've been wanting to try to cook a whole chicken for awhile. They were on sale this week 88 cents a pound, so I picked one up. I'll admit I was nervous about the cleaning/cooking of a whole chicken (so gross). I followed this recipe because it seemed simple. All you do it clean, season the chicken, and put it in the crock pot. No liquids are needed because the chicken produces it's own juices (I was really skeptical about this, but it worked). If you add some onion and celery to the pot the juices actually make a good broth too.
