Ingredients

  • 1

    whole chicken (3-5 lbs)

  • 4

    cups of potatoes, cut up

  • 6

    tablespoons butter, divided

  • Salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, rosemary (to taste)

  • 1

    bay leaf

  • 1

    lemon

  • Butter

  • Olive oil

  • Foil

Directions

Sprinkle potatoes with seasoned salt. Top with 3 tablespoons butter chunks. Wrap them up in the foil & place at the bottom of the crock pot. Push the foil pack down so it spreads out a bit & covers the bottom. More so flat than not. Remove the innards, rinse your chicken & pat dry. Rub it down liberally with olive oil. Then make pockets under the skin & smear 2-3 tablespoons butter under the skin & all over the chicken. Mix up your seasonings (to taste) in a small bowl. Smear under and on top of chicken skin. Halve lemon and add to cavity with a bay leaf. Place over potatoes, cover, cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 7 hours). Preheat an oven-safe skillet under the broiler. Broil for 4 minutes for crispy skin.
