Slow Cooker Rosemary Whole Chicken Recipe

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.

    I have totally noticed you are a slow cooker gal! (and I love that about you). I absolutely cannot WAIT to try this. It looks so easy and I know it will be delicious. I actually have two slow cookers….a small one and a BIG one that will be perfect for a whole chicken. I’m pinning this immediately and putting lemons on my grocery list so I can make it soon!! YAY!! –Lisa

      Oh, it’s heaven! I have a recipe for a 3 hour oven baked Rosemary Chicken that is basically the same as this, and using all of the same ingredients. If I want it a little “crisper” I will bake this in the oven. Chicken and Rosemary are just divine together!
