Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (2 to 3 pound)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
carrots, split lengthwise and cut into 2-inch pieces
fresh chopped parsley
I found this recipe rather blah. Rather than using the foil, I added thickly sliced onions and rest the chicken on these pieces. Then, seasoned it with garlic pieces and fresh tarragan in the cavity and under the skin. I love it lemony too so added a whole lemon that I pierced with a fork numerous times and placed it in the cavity also. The slo-cooker makes it so tender and convenient!
I like the idea of elevating the chicken using the foil balls, adding carrots and onions, and using the slow cooker to make the evening meal easier. BUT I really prefer the spice mixture of Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style. That is by far my favorite whole chicken recipe on this site. This one is just ok for me.
I injected my chicken with a butter sauce and used a creole seasoning. It's soooo juicy! My family loves it!
