In case you haven’t noticed, I am a HUGE fan of my slow cooker. I love making slow cooker recipes and enjoying them at the end of the day. Earlier this week I decided to combine one of my all time favorite recipes with the slow cooker. I must say, it was DIVINE! Needless to say, I am here to share it with you, my Slow Cooker Rosemary Whole Chicken recipe.
Slow Cooker Rosemary Whole Chicken
Here is a list of ingredients you are going to need:
- 1 medium onion
- 2 large lemons
- 1 package fresh Rosemary (using only 2 stems)
- 1 4-5lb whole chicken
- 1 cup water
Step 1: Rinse the chicken and remove the leftover innards. These can be discarded.
Step 2: Quarter one of your lemons, and then slice the other lemon. Take your onion and cut in medium pieces. Remove Rosemary from 2 stems.
Step 3: Place half of your Rosemary, several pieces of onion, and the quartered lemon into the open cavity of the chicken. Stuffing it all in as best as you can.
Step 4: Place your chicken into the slow cooker, and then surround it with the sliced lemons and remaining onion. Top your chicken with the remaining Rosemary leaves.
Step 5: Sprinkle pepper and a little poultry seasoning over the top of the chicken.
Step 6: Add 1 cup of water to the slow cooker, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
Not only is this one of the most AMAZING dishes you will ever taste, but you will be in heaven with the aromas that are filling your house after 8 hours of slow cooking this dish. The chicken is so tender it falls apart when finished. AMAZING!
Serve with a side of garlic mashed potatoes, salad, and a little garlic toast.
