    If I omit the onion, what does that do to the carb count?

    I am assuming the olive oil is applied to the skin of the chicken before/with the salt and pepper. It wasn’t mentioned in the instructions. I’m going to try this recipe soon. It sounds delicious!!

    I can't wait to try this method of slow cooking the whole chicken first,then placing it under a broiler, in the oven or grill. I am betting it will taste amazing!
