Defrost chicken completely if necessary. Remove plastic bag, and discard giblets. You can also remove excess skin to help decrease the fat. Do not rinse the chicken because bacteria can spread in your kitchen. Place whole chicken, breast side up in the crock pot. You do not have to add water or any liquid-the bird makes it's own. Sprinkle a little of the seasonings mentioned above on the chicken. Cook chicken on low approx. 6-8 hours, or on high 4-6 hours. Chicken is done when internal temperature is 165 degrees. A pop up timer works this way too.
*Remove chicken and use part of the liquid for your gravy.
*You can also add veggies or a lemon in the beginning for more flavor.
