I promise even the most beginning novice can make this chicken! I've actually never made one in the slow cooker before.....not sure why! It's SUPER easy! Thanks to my good friend Jolyn at Bargains To Bounty, I knew whole roaster chickens were on sale this week at Kroger for $0.69/lb! So, I rushed out to get some! I'm so happy I did!
It's probably best I tell you now, you need some twine to tie your bird up a bit. I found it in the "hardware" section of our local grocery chain. It's super cheap and you can use it for ALL sorts of things, not just cooking. If you've never trussed a chicken before, here's a great video showing how! You will notice only one side of my bird is trussed! I was seriously strapped for time!
Ok, ready for a super easy and yummy chicken recipe?!!!
Fragrant Lemon Rosemary Chicken
(My hubby took this picture in my absence!)
3-4 lb. Whole Roasting Chicken (Or smaller! Whatever will fit in your slow cooker!)
1 lemon, cut into about 4 pieces
4-6 sprigs fresh rosemary
2-3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2-3 Tbsp. Poultry Seasoning
Ball up 4 pieces of aluminum foil and place in the bottom of your slow cooker insert.
Take out all of the giblets and rinse your bird under the faucet. Pat it completely dry with paper towels.
Stuff the inside of the bird with your lemon wedges and sprigs of rosemary.
Truss your bird.
Rub it down with Olive Oil and then sprinkle your poultry seasoning on top all over.
Place your bird on top of the foil in the slow cooker insert.
Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or on HIGH for 5-6 hours.
