Here is what you’ll need!
1 whole chicken (based on the size of your slow cooker – a 1.3kg chicken should just about fit into a 3.5L slow cooker – while a 6.5L would probably fit a 2kg chicken)
4 lemons
10 garlic cloves divided (8 whole and 2 halved)
4 sprigs rosemary
Slow Cooker Lemon and Garlic Chicken
1. Remove any giblets etc. from the cavity of the chicken, sometimes in a small bag.
2. Stuff chicken with 1 sprig of rosemary, 1 lemon (quartered) and 4 cloves garlic.
3. Season all sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
4. Remove both ends of a lemon, cut in half to create very thick slices.
5. Line the bottom of the slow cooker with 4 lemon slices, 4 whole garlic cloves and a sprig of rosemary.
6. Put the chicken in the slow cooker.
7 Cut 2 garlic cloves in half and put all four pieces on top of the chicken along with the 2 remaining lemon slices.
8. Garnish with 1-2 more sprigs of rosemary. Put the lid on the slow cooker and set to high for 4 hours.
9. Place cooked chicken under the grill (broil) for 10 minutes to crisp the skin (optional).
10. Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes before carving and serving. Leftover juices in the slow cooker are mostly lemon juice with a bit of chicken fat and can be used sparingly as a strongly flavoured sauce.
11. Enjoy!

  1. Why does the ribs look different from the ones taken out of the crockpot? The finished product looks a bit charred and it’s totally different shape/size…?

  2. You need to start listening to the comments about under seasoning. Just put the right amount. You make me worried that youre not getting a healthy dose of seasoning in your life.

  3. This stuff have too much grease on it you should take it out and discard the liquid I'll put it in a bowl and refrigerate it overnight and then make the broth awesome sauce can't stand all look greasy food
