Aunt Grace's 3 Ingredient Crock Pot Chicken

In case I haven't told you, I have the most amazing family, and especially the most AMAZING Aunts, they are truly remarkable.  I was thinking during the holidays, that everything I do would be totally different if not for these amazing women. From the foods I cook to the way I wrap presents to the decorations on my Christmas tree, (and the crocheted tree skirt that Aunt Lovis made me, years ago.)

Aunt Grace posted this recipe on our family page, and let me tell you it has become one of my favorites.   It literally couldn't be easier.  This would be a great dish to teach kids to cook.  Three ingredients.. THAT IS IT. 

Ugly Chicken..... ends up delish!!!

 This chicken is very close to one you buy precooked in the deli section of your supermarket, only better!! 

1 chicken (5 pound or more) 
spray with olive oil (I didn't have spray, I just smeared it with olive oil.... (smear* that is a technical cooking term) 
Lawry's seasoned salt -no substitutes
Aluminum foil
Clean chicken inside and out. Spray with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with Lawry's.
Spray inside of crock with Pam.
Note: Do not put any water in the crock

Roll some wads of aluminum foil into balls and put them in the bottom of the crock.
The chicken is going to sit on these.

Put chicken back side down in crock on top
of aluminum balls. You have to use the aluminum to get the deli taste..

Cook on High (will not come out the same on low), 4-6 hours. 

I was going to take you a beuuuuutiful picture of it...
but my son was home alone....
he ate some before I got back...
he couldn't wait!!

Yummiliciousness!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!!!!
