Easiest Crock Pot Chicken - Ever

Really it is more like 2 "component" chicken, but would people get it?
Is that making it more complicated?

This crockpot recipe is courtesy of my mom. When she told me how to do it, I did not believe her. But since mom knows best I did it exactly how she told me and it turned out fantastic.

Here is the recipe:

1 Whole chicken
Seasoning - this is up to your discretion. You can use a seasoning packet, but making your own is just as easy and so much healthier. Many times I will use homemade taco seasoning.  But you can use whatever you like - salt, pepper, parsley, oregano, thyme, sage, etc.

Directions: Rub seasoning on chicken, place in slow cooker, cook 6-10 hours.

Yes, that is it. Nothing else.  When it is done it will be falling off the bone. I do have one suggestion: cook the chicken upside down, so breast side down. Breast meat is always so dry, by cooking it upside down, the breast meat is much more tender and juicy.
