I have a friend who is the kindest, sweetest person you could ever meet. She never has a bad word to say about anyone, even people she doesn’t know. Whenever a celebrity gets into trouble, she says, “Oh, that poor girl! She really needs help, it’s such a shame what happened to her.”
It makes me feel bad, because most likely, earlier in the day, I referred to that same celebrity as “jerk,” “idiot,” or the Bugs Bunny classic, “maroon.”
I haven’t talked to my friend yet about Charlie Sheen, but I’m certain she’d be somewhat sympathetic.
She is a much better person than I.
Charlie Sheen, what a mah-roon!
Remember Lucas? He was so dreamy in that movie. And he was nice. It wasn’t his fault that Maggie liked him and not Lucas. Corey Haim (may he rest in peace) never stood a chance.
So, anyway, enough about Charlie Sheen. Seriously! Enough about Charlie Sheen already!
This slow cooker chicken is really, really good. I will probably never roast a chicken in the oven again. It’s so much easier to plop it in the crockpot in the morning and then forget about it, instead of having to carve out several hours in the afternoon to watch it in the oven.
Did you like how I used the word “carve” when talking about a chicken? The word popped into my head, and for the life of me, I just couldn’t think of any other word.
Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken
This recipe is from crockpot365.blogspot.com
- 1 whole chicken, 4-5 pounds
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 4 whole garlic cloves
- 1 onion, peeled and quartered
- Skin the chicken and discard all the yucky stuff from the cavity.
- Combine all of the spices in a small bowl and rub all over the chicken, inside and out. I only do out. I just can’t put my hand inside that chicken and rub spices in there. I just can’t. Put the garlic and onion pieces inside the bird. Place the whole thing, breast side down, into the crockpot.
- Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 8 hours.
Sometimes I make this and we eat it with traditional sides, like stuffing and mashed potatoes. But it’s also good to just carve the chicken and use the pieces in another recipe. Last night we had chicken tacos, and tonight we had fettucine alfredo with shredded chicken.
Wow, I got soooo many compliments from the critics when they saw the chicken! Curious George thought it looked “so good” and said “I am definitely going to eat my dinner tonight!” And I’m pretty sure Don Corleone was salivating when he came home from work and saw it sitting on the counter, ready to be carved.
This is what they thought of the fettucine alfredo (just used a jar of sauce, nothing fancy).
Don Corleone: It’s good!
Sarah Crewe: I think it is pretty good.
Batman: I like it. It’s deliciously good!
Curious George: I kind of don’t like it. It sort of tastes like pizza, but I don’t like it.
Elmo ate three helpings, so I’d say that’s a “good” as well!
Look at little Winona Ryder in her very first movie! Now she’s all grown up and shoplifting just like a big girl.
Boy, the things my friend could say about the stars of this movie!
Happy Cooking 😀
