Lemon Garlic Crockpot Chicken

This sounds like an odd combination, but somehow it just works. The leftovers can be frozen, but usually this dish is devoured in one night at our house. It has very little prep time so it’s perfect a busy school night. Just add a couple of steamed veggies as side dishes and you can have dinner on the table in minutes.


1 Whole Chicken

30-40 Cloves Of Garlic – peeled

1 Whole Lemon

1 White Onion – sliced

1/8 of a teaspoon each of marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano, basil or your favorite Italian seasoning blend


Line the bottom of your slow cooker with onions and garlic

Wash the chicken under cold water and pat dry

Put the chicken over the onions and garlic

Squeeze lemon juice all over the chicken

Season the inside and outside of your bird with plenty of salt, pepper and the Italian seasoning blend

Put lemon halves inside the chicken

Cover and cook on low for 6 hours, checking on it every couple of hours

Place the chicken on a plate and shred the meat away off the bone. Add meat to the broth, the garlic and onions
