Place the chicken in the slow cooker.
In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, salt, and spices. Rub the spice mix all over the chicken inside and out.
Flip the chicken breast side down to keep the breast meat as juicy as possible while cooking.
Pour the lime juice over the chicken.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours, or on HIGH for about 4 hours, until the chicken is done and practically falling off the bone. (Mine was perfect after 4 hours on high.)
Remove the skin before serving. Serve with additional lime wedges if desired.
