    This is my method of choice as well: the broth is amazing!
    Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

      I, too, have cooked my chicken in the crockpot. It is always juicy and fantastic - you can use the leftover water for chicken broth for a fantastic soup!

      But the best way I have EVER made a whole chicken (and I do this ALL THE TIME!) from FROZEN or fresh.....my flavorwave oven. Cooks it fast! Crispy skin on the outside and super juicy on the inside. Best $100 (on ebay) I ever spent. I use my flavorwave for A Lot of fast and easy cooking - even from FROZEN!! it's amazing!

        Cooks awesome every time. It's especially good with a rub of butter and cajun seasoning.
        The butter really makes the skin crisp... I like it with the cajun seasoning as well... good call

          Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

          Salt, pepper and butter the outside of the bird.

          Put bird in oven (use a roasting rack), set timer for 20 minutes.

          After 20 minutes, turn oven down to 350 degrees.

          Cook until temperature in the breast is 161 degrees (I like the thermometers that stay in the chicken for the duration)

          Remove from oven, let stand 20 minutes, eat.

          Sometimes I put chopped garlic into softened butter and smear that on the chicken. It's yummy. You could also use lemon juice or all of the above.

            BTW, this is the same way to roast a turkey, too.

              Has anyone made this - http://www.marksdailyapple.com/aroma...illed-chicken/ but in an oven because I don't have a grill? One girl says how to place it in the oven but she doesn't say for how long or at what temp.

              I couldn't find the turkey I was looking for at the Farmer's Market today and now I have a chicken sitting in the fridge going "Eat me!!"

              I'm a bad cook too so , help!
