Slow cooker chicken and summer veggies

Slow Cooker Rotisserie Chicken
Ingredients:

1 whole chicken (about 4-5 lbs.), insides removed
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1-3 Thickly-sliced onions
Directions:
Rinse chicken, pat it dry.
Whisk paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder until combined.
Rub the seasoning mix over chicken — outside, inside, cover completely.
Place thickly sliced onions on bottom of slow cooker as a rack for the chicken, so that it sits up out of juice as it is cooking.
Place the chicken on top of the onions (if no onions, you can use balls of tin foil instead).
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours until the chicken is cooked through and reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.

1 eggplant
2 zucchini
