1 whole chicken
spices
onion, lemon, orange...optional
lemongrass...optional

Directions:
You can pop a whole chicken into a crockpot with no water, and end up 8 hours later with a juicy "roast" chicken. Here's the scoop: rinse the chicken, remove the neck, etc. from the inside, and cut out the extra fat hanging around the edges. Sprinkle with any spice you want (a great place to use up spice mixes you can't remember why you bought), and optionally insert cut up onions or citrus in the cavity. Turn the crockpot on LOW for 6-8 hours. Be prepared to scoop the chicken out in pieces, because it will fall off the bone. Surprisingly, you will also have 1-2 cups of rich chicken broth. Don't throw it away! Store it in the fridge overnight to skim off the fat, then use it for gravy, soup stock, mashed potato water, etc.

Personal Notes:
This is a non-recipe. Remember, you don't need any water, because there is plenty from the processing of the chicken. Lately, I've been putting the chicken on a bed of fresh lemongrass from the herb garden, and then stuffing more lemongrass in the cavity of the bird. Lemon Chicken!
