This is one delicious bird...and easy to boot...you could serve with mashed taters, as it makes a wonderful gravy...enjoy doing something else, while the crock pot does the work.

The broth this bird makes is delicious drizzled over the chicken when serving...Yummilicious!!!

Ingredients

4 lb
roasting chicken

SEASONING

1 Tbsp
salt
2 tsp
paprika
1 1/2 tsp
onion powder
1 1/2 tsp
garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp
dried basil
1 tsp
dried mustard
1 tsp
cumin
2 tsp
pepper
1 tsp
poultry seasoning

FILLING FOR BIRD

2 Tbsp
butter
2 c
onion - chopped
1 c
red bell pepper - chopped
4 clove
garlic, crushed

GRAVY - ( OPTIONAL )

2 c
chicken broth
1/4 c
flour

Step-By-Step

1Combine seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl.
2Melt butter over medium heat in a skillet.

Add onion, red pepper and 3 tablespoons of the seasoning mix.
Cook until the onions are golden brown, add garlic the last few minutes of cooking - approximately 20 minutes in total. Cool slightly.
3Rinse chicken under cold water and remove any giblets that are in the cavity, pat dry with a paper towel.
4Sprinkle the outside of the chicken with the remainder of the seasoning mix.
5Stuff vegetable mixture into the cavity of a chicken.
6Place chicken into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

I love to drizzle the delicious broth over the chicken...absolutely delicious!
7Empty the vegetable stuffing from the cavity and pour juices from the bottom of the slow cooker into a medium saucepan.

With the heat on medium high, whisk in flour and 1 cup of stock.
Stir continuously until thickened and starts to bubble.

Add more stock if you prefer a thinner gravy. Serve over mashed potatoes.
