This is a method for roasting a chicken and then returning the picked-over bones to the pot to make stock as you sleep. It works in a large (oval) crock pot, you need room around the bird for it to roast with air circulation. Feel free to change up the seasoning of the chicken, but keep in mind that it will show up in the stock flavors. If you make an Italian flavored chicken, be prepared for Italian stock.
