Fall off the bone Roasted chicken (slow cooker or oven roasted) instructions
- Wash and dry the chicken, inside and out well.
- Spray the crock pot or roasting pan with non stick spray.
- Once chicken is dry, separate the skin from the breast just enough to get 2 fingers with the butter and garlic mixture between the skin and the meat, place 1/4th of mixture on each breast, pull the skin back down and criss cross together sealing with a toothpick. Tie the legs together. Flip the chicken over and repeat between the rib meat and skin. Now, massage the skin with butter or olive oil. Really massage that bird….all over, don't forget the cavity. Then season the whole chicken, inside and out liberally with paprika, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. I sometimes add dry Italian dressing seasoning and lemon..
