Lemon and Herb Chicken


I found this recipe when my daughter was eating a Gluten Free diet. It was actually listed on a Gluten Free blog that my friend Emily introduced me to when she knew I was having a hard time finding things for Jaylin to eat. This is actually a recipe we all love and I have used ever since. Here is what you will need:

-Whole chicken (skinned, this part can be a little gross so if you want to use skinless chicken breast you can, you just have to keep an eye on it so it won’t dry out)

– A head of garlic

– 2 lemons

-kosher salt

-black pepper


Once you have the chicken washed and skinned rub it inside and out with the Kosher salt and pepper. Place the chicken in the crock pot cavity side down. Peel your garlic and place it inside the cavity of the chicken. Slice your lemons and place them on the outside of the chicken. Place rosemary on the top of the chicken as well. You want to kind alternate the lemons and the rosemary. You can use fresh or dried rosemary. You just want the chicken covered with the lemon and the herb. You can also take some of the garlic and throw it on top or around the chicken. You do not need to add water. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

This is what your chicken should look like before cooked.

We really like this recipe and once you get past skinning the chicken it is pretty simple.
