Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken

Thursday, March 27, 2014

One of my goals for after baby girl arrives is to get better at weekly meal planning, and I think utilizing my slow cooker will be a good tool in this endeavor. I'm still having a hard time cooking, but once the hormones settle I'm excited to give this recipe a try. 

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken

Prep time:  Cook time:  Total time:  Serves: 4
  • 4 lemons
  • 2-3 heads of garlic
  • 1 whole chicken 4 to 5 pounds
  • Fresh rosemary, or any fresh herbs
  • All-purpose steak seasoning or salt and pepper
  1. Cut garlic heads and lemons in half and lay in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Cut the bottoms off the lemons so they lay flat.
  3. Add a sprig of rosemary, and any herbs.
  4. Remove insides from chicken, rinse chicken and pat dry.
  5. Season chicken well, inside and out, with all-purpose steak seasoning or salt and pepper.
  6. Lay chicken on top of garlic and lemon slices and stuff the chicken with a garlic head cut in half, and a lemon cut in quarters.
  7. Cover top of chicken with additional lemon slices and rosemary.
  8. Turn slow cooker to high, and cook for about 4 hours, or until chicken reaches 165 degrees. Slow cooker cooking times may vary.
  9. When chicken has reached 165, turn off slow cooker and let chicken rest for about 15 minutes. (Important: Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness.)
  10. Remove from slow cooker, carve and serve.
  11. Liquid from slow cooker can be strained and served over chicken as a sauce. 
Sounds delish, and doable, no?
