Crockpot Lemon Rosemary Whole Chicken
I am all about my crock pot this week! I have been thinking about this chicken long after the leftovers were gone. It was that good. I love my traditional roasted chickens but if you really don’t have the time, this is my cheater’s chicken.
It tastes like you have been slaving over a stove all evening but in reality you are still binge watching the Gilmore Girl’s sipping a glass of wine after a long day at work. 🙂 No one has to know.
It definitely doesn’t get much easier than this chicken. I literally put the chicken in the crock pot, seasoned, and flavored and walked away and let my house smell of lemons.
The leftovers are also a plus. Can you say shredded lemon rosemary chicken sandwiches? Or top it on your salad? YUM
Give yourself a break this week by putting this bird in the slow cooker and let it simmer in it’s own juices with fresh lemons and rosemary.
1 roasting chicken ( 2-3 lbs)
2 lemons (1 halved and 1 sliced thin)
3 tbs of freshly chopped rosemary
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp of paprika
Place chicken in crockpot
Rub with salt, pepper, and paprika on chicken
Squeeze 1 lemon over chicken
Place lemon slices over top of chicken
Press rosemary so that it sticks to the bird ( it will absorb the flavor better)
Set slow cooker on high for 5-6 hours or low for 8-10 hours.
Slice into the bird to ensure it is cooked thoroughly and serve!
