How to make it

  • Remove any excess fat from the chicken
  • Remove any liver-giblets etc. from the inside of chicken
  • Season the chicken liberally with your favorite chicken dry rub, etc inside and out
  • Coarse chop a large onion and place it in your crock pot
  • Place the chicken on the onions
  • Stuff a lemon sliced in half into the chicken cavity
  • That's it- no liquid is required
  • Cook low about 6+ hours OR chicken is fully cooked
  • Carefully lift out chicken to a serve platter or serving dish , chicken will fall off the bone
  • Strain the liquid in the cooker and, transfer liquid to a pot- reserve the onions for garnish
  • Make a gravy if desired by adding some flour and cooking and stirring till desired thickness
  • Season gravy as desired
  • Note: one needs a large crock pot and of course cooking times will differ somewhat which each make/model of crock pot one uses.
  • Also Note, this chicken does not have crispy skin as does a roast chicken has but the chicken does get coloration from the seasonings used and the heat from the crockpot
