I decided to try it out, and while I have to tell you it will not beat a oven roast chicken with crispy skin, it is a super simple and amazing way to cook a chicken so you have dinner 75% ready when you get home.
Here's the original article. I modified the KFC spice recipe a bit as I didn't have everything on hand, so I'll share my version in a couple steps. :D
Step 1: Ingredients + tools
I also recommend having a 6 quart slow cooker to make it in - any smaller and it might not fit the chicken. I use this one at home, and I love it.
Step 2: Prep the chicken
To do this, I cut a slit in the skin covering the breasts and begin to pull. I cut off the wing tips entirely because they're nearly impossible to de-skin and they don't taste that great when they're not roasted.
Keeping the skin in large pieces makes it easier to pull off, too.
Once the skin has been removed, trim away any excess fat. This often occurs near the neck and down near the body cavity, too.
