I love having a crockpot. It would definitely be in my top 5 must-have kitchen appliances list. I love that I can put dinner in it when my youngest goes down for her nap at 1:00 and it’s ready by 6:00!
I’ve been trying to buy more natural, horomone-free, steroid-free meat, and the best deal seems to always be buying a whole chicken. And coupons.com always has some kind of coupon up for Gold N’ Plump All Natural Chicken. They’ve had the 75¢/1 coupon up for a while now.
So… here’s one of my favorite things to do with a a whole chicken.
Ingredients you will need:
1 Whole Chicken, you can leave the skin on if you want to or remove the skin
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil (if you take the skin off)
1 Tbsp. salt
2 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. Sage Seasoning (I used dried sage, but you could use fresh too)
Onion Powder (to taste)
Garlic Powder (to taste)
10-12 cloves of Garlic
3 Tbsp. of Lemon Juice
How to make it:
Place the whole chicken in the crockpot (make sure to take out the little baggy that’s inside the cavity of the chicken). Coat the chicken with the olive oil, and then sprinkle the salt, pepper, sage, onion powder, garlic powder and parsley onto the chicken. Rub the spices into the chicken until it is coated thoroughly.
Break off and peel the garlic cloves from the bulb of garlic. Stick the cloves inside the cavity of the chicken.
Pour the lemon juice over the top of the chicken (nope, didn’t have fresh lemons!). Cook on high for 3-4 hours or until cooked through.
I served it with brown rice and steamed broccoli. YUM!!
