Crock Pot Spice-Rubbed Chicken w/ Garlic, Onions & Blood Oranges

Crock pots are magic. I layered the bottom of the crock pot with sliced onions and baby potatoes, stuffed the chicken (under the skin and inside the cavity) with sliced blood oranges, onions &amp, and whole garlic cloves, then rubbed the whole thing with a spice mixture of garlic powder, salt, pepper, curry and garam masala. After 8 hours on low, it was succulently delicious, the meat literally falling off the bone, and the potatoes underneath had absorbed all of the wonderful chicken and spice juices.
